A Fargo radio station has given a Minnesota woman a second chance to see her favorite singer, Garth Brooks, after she was kicked out of the Fargodome on May 8 for using the men's restroom right before Brooks performed.

Froggy 99.9 FM said it would send Samantha Bergh and a guest to Las Vegas this summer to see Brooks play the T-Mobile Arena—a weekend's stay with plane tickets, hotel and concert tickets included.

"That would be amazing," Bergh said as she broke into tears in the Froggy studio. The station posted a video of Bergh receiving the news of the surprise gift on Friday, May 13.

Bergh said she was crushed when she was kicked out of the dome right before Brooks got on stage, for using the men's restroom. Her reason for doing so was simple: The lines for the women's restroom were too long.

Sunday was supposed to be the first time Bergh, who is from Lake Park, Minn., would see Brooks perform. It was a Mother's Day gift from her husband.

The Fargodome said that in general, it expects men to use the men's restroom and women the women's restrooms. General Manager Rob Sobolik declined to discuss the specifics of the incident when asked earlier this week by The Forum.

Froggy is sending Bergh to Las Vegas on July 2.
