ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

The Albany Police Department has a plan to make sure everyone is safe at tomorrow night's Charlie Wilson concert. Five Thousand people are expected to attend the Summer Soulfest.

Officers will be stationed at various spots inside the Albany Civic Center. They'll also patrol the parking lot. Police also encourage concert goers be aware of their surroundings.

"But most importantly we ask that those in attendance at the concert keep their eyes and ears open and report any suspicious activity that may occur," said APD Media Manager Phyllis Banks.

The concert starts at 7 tomorrow night.
