    You can go home again, especially if you have a vocal and supportive fanbase.

    Foo Fighters will play their first concert in Richmond, Virginia in over 15 years. A fan-funded campaign to bring Dave Grohl and co. back to the area is responsible for the return of the Foos.

    The campaign to bring back Grohl and the Foos began last March, with dedicated fans pledging $50 each for a hypothetical concert, with a goal of $70,000 being raised.

    Fans and funders/pledgers would only be charged the pledged money if the show "sold out" and actually happened. The campaign surpassed its goal over the weekend.

    The Foos then tweeted that they will return to the region, which is where Dave Grohl grew up.

    See! Fans really can be and will be heard by the bands they love if they speak at high enough volume.

    Below is the Foos' tweet confirming the Virginia show.
