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!

Zero risk. Credit cards are only charged if the show sells out. Full refunds if the band doesn't play.

3/25, Sugar Shack Donuts donates $5,000 and will give away all tix! Thanks Sugar Shack!

4/23, XL102 is now officially on board with our efforts!

4/23, the band now knows about our efforts. Let's do this RVA!

6/10, Brown's Volkswagen donates $5,000 and will give away all tix! Thanks Brown's Volkswagen!

Thanks to everyone who made this tilt happen! The Foo Fighters officially announced they will be performing on September 17th at The National in Virginia for the fans who crowdfunded: https://twitter.com/foofighters/status/507210511411208192

The Foo Fighters haven't rocked Richmond, VA in more than 15 years. So to convince them to come back, we're selling 1400 tix to a Foo Fighters show that doesn't exist (yet). AND IT'S WORKING! The band knows about our efforts, and we're getting tons of national and regional press. Remember, there is nothing to lose. Credit cards are only charged if the show sells out and even then, if the band doesn't play everyone gets all their money back. Every penny. Buy your tix today!
