Why 1000 Italians Played The Foo Fighters’ ‘Learn To Fly’

1,000 Musicians Gather in Field to Play a Foo Fighters Song — and Make a Big Request for the Band.

Since rock band the Foo Fighters hadn’t played his region of Italy since 1997, Zaffagnini wanted to put together something huge to attract the fellas’ attention and hopefully lure them back. One thousand Foo Fighters enthusiasts, also known as the group Rockin ‘1000, came together in Cesena, Italy to perform “Learn To Fly” in hopes of wooing the band to play in Italy’s Romagna region. Well, after a year of preparation (quite a lot went into this undertaking) it finally happened — and on Thursday the “Rockin’ 1000” project released the video proof. In the video, event creator Fabio Zaffagnini says he made it specifically for the band, and is hoping the viral sensation of it all will help land the seven minute video in the laps of the group. “You know, Italy is a country where dreams can not easily come true, but it’s a land of passion and creativity,” he continues. “So what we did in here is just a huge, huge miracle.” It’s unclear if the band will agree to play Cesena now, but Zaffagnini & Co. at least reached their first goal and attracted the Foo Fighters’ attention: And whatever you assume might be the result of so many people attempting to play a song in unison, you just might come away from this clip more impressed and inspired than you first thought.

The band is slated to play two shows in Italy this November — one in Casalecchio di Reno, which is about an hour away from Cesena, and one in Turin, which is four hours away.
