The Foo Fighters Had the Best Response to This Epic Viral Video
1000 musicians in Italy came together for a live performance of the band's "Learn to Fly."
Want to get the Foo Fighters to come play a concert in your city? Just create an elaborate, incredibly impressive viral video that involves 1,000 musicians playing the same song at the same time.
Rockin' 1000 had a dream of getting the Foo Fighters to come to the little Italian city of Cesena for a show. So they spent months crowdfunding and preparing for a performance that involved 1,000 musicians coming together for a live performance of Foo Fighters' "Learn to Fly."
Orchestra leader Marco Sabiu had the task of getting all of these rockers — including vocalists, drummers, guitarists, and bassists — on the same beat. The results are pretty epic:
So did it work? YES!
On Friday, Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl posted a video thanking the fine people of Cesena for their rockin' work.
"Hi Cesena! I'm Dave," Grohl says in the video. "I'm sorry, I don't speak Italian... just a little bit. This video... it's amazing! Such an amazing thing, thank you! We are coming. I promise. See you soon... Thank you so much."
Congrats, Cesena! Well done.
