There is no shortage of concerts coming to Sioux Falls and South Dakota concerts of the year. But some shows are getting plenty of attention for the wrong reasons.

Late last week, the Sioux Empire Fair in Sioux Falls alerted concert and eventgoers of new ticket and contest scams.

The Sioux Empire Fair is right around the corner and some great shows coming to the fair this year include Jo Dee Messina, Flo Rida, The Fray, and Travis Denning with Conner Smith. Since there is excitement around these shows and events at the Sioux Empire Fair, fair officials have been selling fair passes early. Pit Passes for concert-goers will also be available to purchase. For any Sioux Empire resident planning to buy these tickets, Sioux Empire Fair officials are warning fairgoers about new ticket scams.
