1,000 Italians Band Together to Woo Their Favorite Band


250 singers. 350 guitarists. 150 bassists. And 250 drummers.

1,000 musicians who wanted nothing more than for Foo Fighters to come play a show in their town, Cesena.

Organizer Fabio Zaffagnini spoke of the “miracle” they pulled off, saying, “Italy’s a country where dreams cannot easily come true, but it’s a land of passion and creativity.”

Moved by the gesture, Foo Fighters front man Dave Grohl immediately posted his own video in response, speaking in Italian. “We’re coming, I swear,” he promised. “We will see each other soon.”

Watch as the “Rockin 1000″ perform Foo Fighter’s hit “Learn to Fly.”
