Just a few months ago, 1,000 musicians came to together in Cesena, Italy and created one of the most stunning videos in a long time: a literal army of musicians of all ages playing an absolutely massive cover of Foo Fighters hit song “Learn To Fly.”
“I guess that this video is going to be seen by a huge, huge amount of people all over the world,” says organizer Fabio Zaffagnini at the end of the song. “But to be true it has been conceived to be addressed just to five people. To Chris, Pat, Nate, Taylor, and Dave Grohl. The Foo Fighters.”
Zaffagnini was right. The video has garnered over 25 million views so far. But more importantly, it got the attention of Dave Grohl, and today he announced that the long-awaited concert is really happening.
