The folks of Richmond, Virginia -- and most certainly the surrounding DMV area -- have upped the ante on what it means to be a Foo Fighters fan. Led by the efforts of Andrew Goldin, a month-long campaign was launched to crowdsource $70,000 to bring the band back to Richmond for their first show since 1998. While this plan was hatched without any contact with the band, the concert came to the Foo Fighters attention, and they tweeted out a simple response: "See ya soon…let's have a good time."
With 1,400 tickets to sell at $50 apiece, the campaign surpassed its hefty goal on Saturday, June 16. While no date or venue has been set, the concert will definitely take place at some point during 2014. It just goes to show, if you love something, set it free, and then when it doesn't come back to you soon enough, you raise a lot of money until it can no longer ignore you.
