Foo Fighters have seemingly agreed to play a crowd-funded gig in Richmond, Virginia.
The band have not played a show in the North American city for 16 years, so resident Andrew Goldin started an online campaign, as NME reports.
The campaign's fundraising page reads: "It's simple. The Foo Fighters haven't played Richmond, Virginia since May 17, 1998. That's more than 15 years ago and that's way too long. So we're taking it upon ourselves to bring 'em back!" The "Help Bring the Foo Fighters Back to RVA" campaign site is selling 1,400 tickets at $50 a ticket.
The band have now taken to Twitter to apparently agree to play a show in the city, writing: "See ya soon." However, no date has been set for the show.
The new Foo Fighters album will be released this November. The album is currently untitled but was recorded in eight different studios in eight states across America. It will be accompanied by mini series "Sonic Highways," broadcast on HBO, which will document the recording progress. Watch the teaser below. Dave Grohl will operate as director on the project, following his "Sound City" documentary of 2013.
