"Well, well, well..." the band tweeted late last night, replying to the campaign's account. "See ya soon...let's have a good time."
The campaign, which accrued over $60,000 of its ticket "sales" in the past two months, was aided by $5,000 donations from local businesses like Sugar Shack Donuts and Brown's Volkswagen and advertised by local rock radio station XL102. If it hadn't been fully funded, or if the band themselves had turned down the request, the 515 backers, who paid $50 per ticket, would have had their payments returned in full.

"Let's say [the band] loves the idea and says, 'Holy shit, this is a great idea,' but rather than the 1,400 tickets, let's open it up to [outdoor venue] Brown's Island and sell 20,000 tickets," Goldin told Billboard back in April.

Foo Fighters Reveal New Album Details, HBO Series

The Foo Fighters have a history of appealing to their audience; in 2011, they played eight fans' garages on their tour in support of that year's "Wasting Light." The band has an HBO series coming up, too; "Sonic Highways" is an eight-episode docuseries Grohl calls "a musical map of America" that follows the multi-studio process of creating their forthcoming album, scheduled for a November release. Watch the original campaign video and that docuseries trailer below.
