Dave Grohl has promised to bring the Foo Fighters to Cesena, Italy after a video showing 1,000 musicians in Italy performing the group’s “Learn to Fly” in unison went viral.
An organization named Rockin’ 1000 brought 350 guitarists, 250 singers, 250 drummers and 150 bassists together for the Cesena spectacle, which racked up over 20 million views on YouTube in just one week.
Grohl was so moved by the performance that he quickly recorded a video utilizing the very little Italian he spoke to promise the people of Cesena that Foo Fighters would come there soon.
Translation: Hi Cesena! I’m Dave. Hi. 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. I love you! Bye.
