Fan togetherness can achieve wonderful things, with Car Hire Birmingham Airport staff hoping the gig in the city does get accepted.
Over £90,000 has been raised by a group of British Foo Fighter fans trying to get the rock band to play a gig in Birmingham. After a successful project in Richmond, Virginia in America by fans there, when the band agreed to play, now a similar project is under way here.
The venture was launched on Kickstarter on 19th September and has already passed more than half of their £150,000 target. Around 800 people have pledged at least £50, corresponding to one ticket in the hope that the Foo Fighters will accept their invitation to play a 2015 show in Birmingham.
The Foo Fighters recently played a handful of English gigs, performing three ‘secret’ club shows before headlining at London’s Invictus Games. They have yet to respond to the Birmingham crowd funding campaign.
