It would be their first in fifteen years...
NME reports that Foo Fighters fans in Dave Grohl's home town of Richmond, Virginia have started a campaign to get the band to play there. It will be their first show there in fifteen years. You can find the campaign on Crowdhoster.
The page reads: "It's simple. The Foo Fighters haven't played Richmond, Virginia since May 17, 1998. That's more than 15 years ago and that's way too long. So we're taking it upon ourselves to bring 'em back!"
The campaign is selling 1,400 tickets at $50 a ticket. The Foo Fighters have not announced an official show in the city.
In an interview with SPIN, campaign co-founder Andrew Goldin said: "We're just a few friends and fans looking to make this happen... Came up with the idea and thought it would be a blast to try. The band seems to have so much fun with themselves that we really think it may happen. We have reason to believe they know about it at this point," he said. "We haven't been shut down, so that's a good sign, right?"
