1,000 Musicians Perform Foo Fighters’ “Learn to Fly” in Unison in Italy; Dave Grohl Responds in Italian

in Music | July 30th, 2015

Despite breaking his leg during a gig earlier this summer, Dave Grohl and the Foo Fighters have blitzed their way through Europe and America, playing sometimes 5-6 shows per week, in cities often large, but sometimes small.

On September 16th, the band will make a pitstop in my hometown, Mountain View, CA (population 75,000). So it doesn’t seem implausible for the residents of Cesena, Italy (population 100,000) to ask the Foo Fighters to play a show in their small city, which sits right near the Adriatic Sea.

And boy did they make the request in style. I get chills when I watch this, every time.

Update: Days later, Dave Grohl responds … in Italian:

    It’s not “THE FOO FIGHTERS.” The sentence should be 1000 muscians perform FOO FIGHTERS’ Learn to Fly. Cmon. Putting “THE” in front of Foo Fighters. Is like saying I’m performing THE METALLICA’S Through the never.” Makes no sense.
