Tickets sales for Saturday's Britney Spears "Circus" tour concert in Grand Forks have picked up dramatically, perhaps a sign that more people are watching their pennies paycheck to paycheck, said Steven Hyman, executive director of the Alerus Center.


"I would definitely say the economy has affected it," Hyman said Tuesday of ticket sales. "It's affected (the Alerus) in that we have sold more tickets in the last 10 days than we have in the previous three months."
