Foo Fighters fans hit donation target for U.K. gig

Fans of rockers the Foo Fighters have hit a Kickstarter.com target to bring the band to Birmingham, England for a show.

Just weeks after a devotee in Richmond, Virginia was successful in securing Dave Grohl's group for a gig in his home city, thanks to a crowd-funding campaign online, Foo fans in the U.K. appear to have landed a special concert in the Midlands.


The campaign reached its goal of $240,000 on Thursday (25Sep14), with 54 days still to go.


Fans who donated upwards of $80 to the Kickstarter initiative secured a ticket for the potential show, which could now take place next year (15) as part of the band's European tour.


A venue has yet to be confirmed and Grohl and his bandmates have not confirmed they'll play the show.
