UPDATE 9:15 A.M.

Garth Brooks has confirmed he will play TWO shows in Minneapolis next summer, after being asked to add another date by Gov. Mark Dayton.

Brooks joined Dayton at a media call on Monday morning, albeit via conference call after the door on his plane wouldn't shut, forcing him to shelve his plans to fly out here.

But the country megastar has announced that he will now be playing a second show at U.S. Bank Stadium, in addition to the show on Saturday, May 4 that sold out in less than an hour on Friday.

Brooks will now play consecutive nights at the arena, with tickets going on sale this Thursday for a show on Friday, May 3.

Dayton had asked Brooks to add another date after the first sold out so quickly, with Brooks replying on Twitter on Friday, "I'm in!"

UPDATE 7:35 A.M.

So it looks like Garth Brooks WON'T be in St. Paul on Monday morning, but he will be speaking to the media in Minnesota at 9 a.m.

Complications with the country star's flight to the Twin Cities has prevented his journey to Minnesota, though he will still be joining Dayton for the presser, albeit via a conference call.

Original story

Garth Brooks is in St. Paul Monday morning, where he's expected to make an announcement alongside Gov. Mark Dayton.

The governor had asked Brooks to consider holding a second show in Minnesota, after his May 4 date at U.S. Bank Stadium sold out in less than an hour on Friday.

Brooks responded with a tweet saying "I'm in" and "let's make it happen," and will be alongside the governor at the State Capitol, where they'll make an announcement at 9 a.m.

In a press release, Dayton says he'll be hosting Brooks at the Minnesota State Capitol to "discuss his upcoming concert plans in Minneapolis."

This story will be updated after the announcement is made.
