Foo Fighter fans successfully fund an unscheduled show in Richmond, the first in Virginia since 1998

Four Richmond Foo Fighter fans - Andrew Goldin, Brig White, John McAdorey, and Lucas Krost - decided to crowd fund for a Foo Fighters' concert back in March, and it seems that Dave Grohl and the Foo Fighters have listened to their wishes, dropping a not so subtle hint in a Twitter post claiming that the band would see the city soon.

According to Spin, Andrew Goldin hosted a Crowdhoster campaign in hopes of bringing Grohl and the Foo Fighters back to the city for the first time since 1998. Goldin planned to sell 1,400 tickets at $50 each.

This goal was easily attained with the help of both passionate Richmond fans and two Richmond businesses - Brown's Volkswagen and Sugar Shack Donuts, who donated $5,000 each. The campaign was also advertised, as noted by The Hollywood Reporter, by local rock radio station XL102.

While the venue and date of the show have not been announced or reported, Grohl and the Foo Fighters, who have a long history of listening to their fans, will clearly be returning to Dave Grohl's home state for a truly unique event.
