RICHMOND, Va. — The Foo Fighters sellout large arenas and stadiums around the world, but tonight the band will play The National in downtown Richmond. The band agreed to play the modest-sized venue after a group of Richmond fans organized an effort to convince the band to return to Richmond for the first time since 1998. After the group  ‘Help bring the Foo Fighters back to RVA!’ sold 1,400 tickets to the concert — which at the time did not exist — the band played along and booked a Richmond performance.

The doors at The National open tonight at 7 p.m., but fans started lining up to get in around noon. We’ll update this page with relevant tweets and social media updates throughout the evening. Welcome to RVA Foo Fighters!
