It was late 2007. I had grown up listening to Nirvana and other grunge bands. I was always in the mood for discovering similar bands, but I was mostly disappointed. One day, however, I discovered a band called Foo Fighters, founded by a former member of Nirvana. Although I wasn’t impressed with the band’s name, its music slowly grew on me during my late teen years.
However, I never got to see them live. Every time they played a concert in my hometown, I had something else to do, like exams or family reunions. But I’m glad to report that things have changed. I’m going to see Foo Fighters live at the Richmond Coliseum on Saturday, October 14, 2017. If you’re going to the same concert, too, here are the tools you need to plan this trip effortlessly.
How to Get Tickets
First, you can simply go to the Richmond Coliseum website and follow the instructions to buy your tickets. You can also check out Ticketmaster and make your purchase there. Even if tickets aren’t available through Ticketmaster yet, you can leave your phone number and receive a text message when they’re available for purchase.
Where to Find Flights
Throughout my travels over the past three years, i have always used Skyscanner for comparing flight options and booking tickets. I trust the results and recommend Skyscanner highly.
How to Book a Hotel
For my stays in Richmond, I used Hotel Planner to book accommodations. The website offers a variety of good hotels in and around the Coliseum. The price starts at $38 and goes up to $450 per night, so there’s an option for everyone’s budget.
How to Have Fun

Food gets expensive at concert venues. So if you’d like to save money, it’s best to eat out and then go to the show.
Nobody wants to pay $10 for a drink. Get together and have drinks at the hotel or at a bar before the show. That doesn’t mean you shouldn’t drink at the concert, but at least you won’t need to drink as much.
This sounds bit odd. But why would anyone go to the concert if they didn’t like the band? I’ve made friends at concerts, and it’s so much fun to go to our next concerts together rather than constantly looking for someone to go with me. Besides that, it’s always cool to have friends with a similar taste in music.
No matter how much we argue, family is family. There’s no point making them worried. Leave a note at your desk to tell them where you’ll be. Easy peasy!
- Be Nice
Everyone is there to enjoy and have a good time. You should expect a huge crowd, some pushing and pulling, a mess of drinks and food, and like-minded people with the same taste in music. Overall, you’ll have a good time. Life with music is a million times better than life without music.
