Dave Grohl Thinks Crowdfunded Tours Could Be Game Changer

(Classic Rock) Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl thinks that crowdfunded tours could become the norm for bands in years to come. Foo Fighters have agreed to play a gig in Richmond, Virginia USA after fan Andrew Goldin launched a crowdfunding appeal to get the band to perform there for the first time since 1998.

Goldin set a goal of selling 1400 tickets for $50 each, with donors only being charged if the band agreed to play. When the Foos heard about the successful campaign they said they would play - although a date and venue have not yet been confirmed.

Grohl tells a South African radio station: "It could become the way that bands decide where they want to play. It's a fun thing - it sort of changes the game." more on this story
