Foo Fighters Agree to Play Italian Town After Video of 1,000 Rockers Performing 'Learn to Fly' Goes Viral

The Foo Fighters have agreed to play a show in northern Italy after a fan gathered 1,000 musicians to play their hit "Learn to Fly".

A video of the performance was posted to YouTube on Thursday in a bid to get the band to play a show in Cesena.

It was viewed more than four million times in 24 hours - and soon caught the attention of the band.

When translated, the tweets read: “Hello beautiful, Cesena….” and “We will see you soon, Cesena… xxx David.”

Singer Dave Grohl also took to Facebook on Friday with a video message in Italian:


Ci vediamo a presto, Cesena.... xxx Davide

The singer said: "Hello Cesena. It is David. Hello. I am sorry, I don't speak Italian -- only a little, a little. This video, how beautiful. How fantastic. Thanks a million! We are coming, I promise. We will see you soon. Thanks a million! I love you. Bye." 

The campaign to get Dave Grohl and his band to play the Italian town was started last year by Italian fan Fabio Zaffagnini.

He launched the campaign “Rockin’ 1000” in an effort to attract musicians from across his country for the mass performance.

The band have not confirmed when they will play Cesena and are currently on a U.S. tour.
