A 30 second sellout of nearly 15,000 seats to a Central Coast concert by one of country music’s biggest stars has led to the announcement of a an unusual, second late night event.

Last week, tickets for the July 27th Garth Brooks concert at the Mid-State Fair in Paso Robles sold out moments after they went on sale. On Twitter, and in a video Brooks said he was so overwhelmed by the response that something had to be done for fans.

So, a second concert will take place that same night, on July 27th, beginning at 10:30 p.m. Tickets for the second concert will go on sale at noon on Thursday, with all ticket sales taking place online through Ticketmaster.

The 2017 Mid-State Fair runs July 19th through 30th.
