Garth Brooks adds 2nd Minneapolis show at governor's request

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Country superstar Garth Brooks says Minnesota Gov. Mark Dayton is why he's adding a second concert when he visits Minneapolis. Brooks told reporters during a call Monday that his upcoming stadium tour is "all about one special night." But the 50,000 tickets for his May 4 show sold out within an hour Friday, so officials at the state-owned U.S. Bank Stadium asked the governor to ask Brooks to add a second show, which Dayton did via Twitter. Brooks says that was enough to get him to relax his one-night-only rule.
