Rolling Stone reports this week the fans had surpassed their goal of raising $70,000 for the concert.
So, once that the funds were raised, the show was on, right? Well, actually, they still had to get the band to agree to come.
Foo Fighters tweeted at the fan Twitter account Friday night, "Well, well, well ... See ya soon ... Let's have a good time."(Via Twitter / @foofighters)
Although the band now seems to be on board, an exact date and time has not yet been announced. The Crowdhoster site reads, "The plan is for the show to take place in Richmond, VA sometime in 2014. Stay tuned for exact details."(Via Foo Fighters Richmond)
This will be the first time the band has played in Richmond in more than 15 years.
