Back in May of 2014 Fabio Zaffagnini had an idea to get one of his favorite bands, the Foo Fighters, to play in the historic region of Italy called Romagna, a place the Foo haven’t played since way back in 1997.
The idea was to “organize something that kicks ass worldwide and can be seen by Dave Grohl,” and boy, Zaffagnini sure did that.
Zaffagnini took his idea and ran with it, raising over 44,000 Euros and brought together 1000 musicians to do one thing, make so much noise that the world could here.
And they did.
The 1000 person band covered the Foo Fighter’s hit “Learn to Fly,” and, as you can see below, did an incredible job at it!
The video quickly spread after being posted to the official site, Rockin’1000. And guess who noticed?
Yep, the Foo Fighters!
After watching the video, the Foo Fighters tweeted “Ci vediamo a presto, Cesena…” which means “See you soon” in English.
