'I'm in!' Garth Brooks responds to Gov. Dayton's call for a second Minnesota show

The country star's May 4 show sold out in under an hour.

Minnesota loves Garth Brooks.

He famously sold out 11 shows at Target Center in 2014, and he delighted fans by announcing he'll return to the Twin Cities with a May 4 show at U.S. Bank Stadium.

That show? Yeah, it sold out in less than an hour – we're talking over 50,000 tickets. That's how big he is here.

To that end, Governor Mark Dayton is using some of his remaining weeks in office to persuade the country star to have a second show at U.S. Bank Stadium.

And Brooks? He is well up for it, judging by this tweet that proclaimed, "Let's make it happen for the people of Minnesota!"

In his statement, Dayton said that the fact tickets for Brooks' May 4 show sold out in under an hour is a sign "there is great demand for another concert."

"Our state-of-the-art stadium is the perfect place to host fans from across Minnesota and the upper Midwest for one more outstanding concert performance," he said.

"We would love for Garth to spend the weekend in Minneapolis, where Minnesotans and fans across the region would surely welcome him with open arms."
