Foo Fighters Announce September Date for Crowd-Sourced Richmond Show

Foo Fighters

The Foo Fighters have announced via Twitter that they will perform at The National in Richmond, Va. on Sept. 17. The show is the culmination of a crowd-funded campaign to get the Foos to play in the city for the first time since 1999.

The CrowdTilt campaign was started by Andrew Goldin, Brig White, John McAdorey and Lucas Krost, who had the idea to sell tickets to a show that didn’t exist in hopes they would sell-out, garner the band’s attention and bring the Foo Fighters back to Richmond.

The successful campaign brought in some big money from local businesses like Sugar Shack Donuts and Brown’s Volkswagon, who each donated $5,000. All tickets to the show were sold out before the band even knew about it. The organizers were prepared to return all the money if the Foos refused to play.

Fortunately, the band decided to honor the request. As stated, they revealed the date in a tweet that can be seen below:

The Foo Fighters will release their eighth studio album ‘Sonic Highways: The Album’ on Nov. 10.  It is available for pre-order here.

The band chronicled the recording sessions for an upcoming eight-episode HBO series titled ‘Sonic Highways,’ which will debut on Oct. 17, airing Fridays at 11 PM ET/PT.
