We want to bring the Foo Fighters to Cornwall, and show the world what an awesome location Cornwall is to host live music.

No update in a while! Also noticed that a 'thank you' event was held for people who have supported and donated to this appeal. A shame they didn't let people know through this page. Only 150 people showed up! A little update would be really nice right now...
This has to be the future of driving gig locations!! Hey bands go where you are most wanted!! This is a brilliant initiative for one of the greatest bands on earth, and one that I truly believe will listen... It's going to be legendary!
I'm not holding my breath. It's a shame, but the only way round this is for venues to specify the same rules as airlines when it comes to buying tickets. Your ticket, your name and proof of id. Unfortunately this will never happen as long as people continue to buy tickets through agents. If we didn't buy them, they'd go out of business. Anybody who has bought a ticket from an agent (that includes me), has just contibuted to the current situation.
What is going on? I have got an email from Paypal saying it's been refunded, yet no credit to my account after 4 hours? Since done GoCardless, Just looked at their profile on here and they have backed 1 project and ran 0 ??? Pledges were supposed to have ended, yet still available??
Well we are into the final stretch and I can not help but think that this may go the way of the Birmingham Kickstarter effort to raise awareness of the scam that is the secondary ticket market and the links between the major ticket distributors and these shadow companies (Seat Wave and Getmein) who although sound "independent" are possible linked or even owned by the same distributors. With such a huge amount raised here my money was on this coming through as once again I failed to get tickets for Wembley and will end up buying over priced tickets from these profit merchants to see my fav band. It would be a shame to see that both noble efforts (Birmingham and Cornwall) have come/may come to nothing and that after much posturing from the band and management regarding ticket re-sales nothing has really move forward. I would suggest that the lack of information on this project is more down to silence from the bands management rather than Warner Young. If it does not come off then thanks to them for making the effort and it has certainly highlighted to me that there are plenty of people who are prepared to take a stand.
Had an e-mail stating that because I pledged via Paypal, I'll be getting my pledge refunded on Monday. Time restrictions apply to the crowd founder project apparently. I feel that offering a Paypal option then was rather pointless!
As far as I know I have just pledged for 2 tickets, how will I know if the pledge has been successful? I didn't get any kind of confirmation page. Do not want to miss out on this opportunity!! :) xx
A Cornish foo date mid-June would work perfectly, a cheeky wembley warm up and chance for the band to plug into Cornwall and charge up their touring batteries ;) please come to Cornwall Mr Grohl et. al. and please warner-young-management negotiate for this magic to happen :) Keeping everything crossed and eagerly awaiting any updates, yours hopefully - one of many pledged and avid foos fans.
This project offers rewards in return for your donation.
