Good news, Garth fans.

Country star Garth Brooks has announced he will play a second show in Boise after tickets to his first show sold out in less than an hour.

The performance will be played at Albertsons Stadium Friday, July 19 at 7 p.m. Tickets go on sale Friday, May 31 at 10 a.m. on Ticketmaster. Once again, there will be an eight ticket limit per person.

The initial day of ticket sales left some fans disappointed, with would-be customers complaining that they were unable to score seats for the show despite getting in the queue's "waiting room" an hour before sales started. 

A full 50 percent of fans waiting in the queue did not get tickets, according to a publicist for Brooks. 

Marissa Morrison, a spokeswoman for Gov. Brad Little, said Brooks' team had reached out to the governor that same day, requesting that he make a video publicly asking the musician to play another show in Boise. 

On Wednesday, he did just that. 

"You're blowing the doors off anything that has happened in Boise, Idaho for a long, long time," Little says in the video. 

The Friday concert date was announced Thursday morning. 

It's unclear whether more concert dates will be added if the July 19 show is another fast sellout. 

Brooks' team said Thursday the singer is planning to hold a press conference with local media before his first performance in July.
