Foo Fighters to Play a Crowdfunded Concert

The Foo Fighters for some reason haven’t played in Richmond Virginia in fifteen years.  I don’t know if there’s a specific reason for that, but their fans took to “Crowdtilt” to raise the money they thought it would take to bring them there.  Well, they succeeded.  They raised $70,000 by reserving 1,500 tickets for $42 each, and then a couple local businesses bought large batches of tickets to give them away for free.  The Foo Fighters announced via twitter that they would play the concert.  Just another reason to like those guys.
