What a great story!

A group of fans that started an online campaign to get the Foo Fighters to play their town for the first time in 16 years have received word from the band that they will schedule a show in town soon.

It all started a few months ago, when an online campaign was started on Crowdhoster where fans could buy “tickets” to a Foo Fighters “show” in Richmond, Va. (even though it didn’t exist yet) in hopes that the band will book an actual show in the near future.

They even created a great campaign video!  Watch it below!

This is yet another example of the power of fans, the internet and the Foo Fighters just being awesome.

Congrats to those Richmond fans!  You deserve it!
