Foo Fighters fans from Dave Grohl's hometown have launched a campaign to get the band to play a show there for the first time in over 15 years.

Fans in Richmond, Virginia, have created the campaign on crowdfunding website Crowdhoster.

The campaign's fundraising page reads: "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!”

The 'Help Bring The Foo Fighters Back To RVA' campaign site is selling 1,400 tickets at $50 a ticket. However the Foo Fighters have yet to announce they will play a date in the city.

In an interview with SPIN, co-founder of the campaign Andrew Goldin said: "We're just a few friends and fans looking to make this happen... Came up with the idea and thought it would be a blast to try. The band seems to have so much fun with themselves that we really think it may happen."

He continued: "We have reason to believe they know about it at this point," he said. "We haven't been shut down, so that's a good sign, right?"
