Foo Fighters' Dave Grohl: 'Crowd-sourced gigs are the future of music'

'All My Life' rockers the Foo Fighters recently made headlines for agreeing to play a gig in Richmond, Virginia, which was set up by fans who used the site Crowdhoster to buy 1,400 tickets to an unofficial event and Dave Grohl has now spoken out about the crowd sourced event and what it could mean for the music industry's future.

During a new interview with 5FM, the frontman explained that these kind of events may become more common and it's a great way to 'change the game' that rules over bands and touring at the moment:

"I'm telling you, it could become the way that bands decide where they want to play. It's a fun thing; it sort of changes the game."

Grohl went onto add that it's interesting to see the fans dictating when and where they should perform, and something he likes so would be happy with this method of concert booking becoming more popular: "For the past 20 years we always decided who we're going to play with and where we're going to play. But now, if we hear that people want us to come somewhere, maybe we'll come there."
