Watch 1000 Musicians Play 'Learn to Fly' to Inspire Dave Grohl to Do a Concert in Italy

Jul 30, 2015

A thousand musicians appear to have learned how to play the Foo Fighters' song "Learn to Fly" together in an effort to inspire Dave Grohl to come and play in Cesena, Italy. The website "Rockin' 1000" claims the group has not been to Romagna since 1997. These diehard fans had to raise 44,000 euros (nearly $50,000) in a crowdfunding campaign to pull off the stunt. Now it is just a question of whether the Foo Fighters or Dave Grohl will see the video and post on social media that he will be there — or not.
