1000 Musicians Play “Learn to Fly”

A thousand Italian singers, guitarists, bassists, and drummers under the name Rockin1000 got together to play “Learn to Fly” by the Foo Fighters. Watching that many people play and sing together -well- is spine-tingling. The stunt, a year in the making, is intended as an invitation to Dave Grohl and the band to come and play in Cesena, Italy. Do you think they will? Oh, in case you'd like to hear the drums and bass only, here's a personal video taken on the scene without a direct music feed.  To hear only the guitar, here's a video from a guitarist with a GoPro.

Update: Dave Grohl just uploaded the Foo Fighters’ response to YouTube.

A 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
Update: In November, Cesena got their concert!
