ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) – Garth Brooks and Gov. Mark Dayton are making a concert announcement after the governor asked the country superstar to schedule another performance when tickets for his May 4th concert in Minneapolis sold out in less than an hour.
The governor’s office says at least 50,000 people were in line, on the phone or online Friday when the last ticket was sold for the concert at U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis.
That prompted Dayton’s request. Brooks took to Twitter Friday night to thank Dayton and to let fans know he was on board with a second show.
Brooks is to be on hand for Monday’s 9 a.m. announcement in the Governor’s Reception Room at the state Capitol.
In 2014, Brooks held an 11-show run at Target Center, selling about 205,000 tickets.
