(hennemusic) The Foo Fighters will return to Richmond, Virginia for the first time in 16 years to play a concert after fans took things into their own hands and launched a crowdfunding campaign to make the show happen.
The campaign was launched in March by Andrew Goldin, who sought to bring the band back to one of Dave Grohl's former hometowns for their first show since 1998, according to Rolling Stone.
Goldin and his fellow organizers, Brig White, John McAdorey and Lucas Krost, launched the campaign with a goal of selling 1,400 tickets at $50 each to the hypothetical concert in order to convince the band to return.
Fans' credit cards would only be charged if the show sold out, and the contributions would be returned if the band didn't agree to play at the concert. more on this story
