Courtney Love  has gone on record to say that the hug felt 'round the world -- between her and  Dave Grohl  at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony honoring  Nirvana  -- was genuine. Now the other party's confirmed it. In an interview with  The Hollywood Reporter , Grohl says, "I saw Courtney walking past [earlier in the night] and I just tapped her on the shoulder and we looked at each other in the eyes and that was it -- we're just family. We've had a rocky road. We've had a bumpy past, but at the end of the day we're a big family and when we hugged each other it was a real hug."

Grohl said that the induction was "wonderful" because of "the personal side of it. It was the Hall of Fame ceremony, but it meant so much to all of us personally that sometimes you forgot about the other stuff -- like the arena and the trophy -- and focused on real, personal things."

In other Foo news, the fans in Virginia who made headlines a couple of months ago selling tickets to a non-existent  Foo Fighters  show might get their far-flung wish after all.

The story was first picked up by Richmond TV station  WTVR  that a group of Foo fans were bereft because their favorite band hadn't played a show there since 1998, and they decided to take matters into their own hands. The hopeful fans -- with the catchy name of Help Bring the Foo Fighters Back to RVA! -- took it upon themselves to sell 1,400 concert tickets, hoping that Grohl and company would reward their efforts by scheduling a show.

It seems that there just might be a happy ending to their story -- a few days ago, the Foo Fighters Twitter account "liked" the Foo Fighters RVA account, and then a day later, the RVA group tweeted, "You may want to grab your  #rva @foofighters  tix over the next two weeks. Just saying."

Tickets to the not-yet-confirmed show are $50 each, sold through  crowdhoster.com , and organizer  Andrew Goldin  says it's risk-free for fans who want to pitch in. "Either the band will come and play and you’ll get what you paid for or they won’t come and everyone gets every penny back," he said. "Crowdhoster holds on to all money and then if the show happens, the money will be transferred to the band, venue, etc."

Stay tuned.
