One of the biggest names in country music has done it for a second time, selling out a concert on the Central Coast in just 30 seconds.

Tickets for a July 27th Garth Brooks concert at the Mid-State Fair in Paso Robles went on sale June 23rd, and the nearly 15,000 seats were gone in moments.

When the country superstar heard about the huge fan response, he tweeted that they needed to do something about it, by adding a second concert. So, he and the fair agreed to an unusual second concert that same night, beginning at 10:30 p.m.

Tickets for the second event went on sale online at noon Thursday, and again sold out in 30 seconds. Officials with the Mid-State Fair say they were the fastest sellouts in the Fair’s history.

The 2017 Fair runs July 19th through 30th.
