Here’s That 1,000-Person Italian Foo Fighters Cover Band In Action
Foo Fighters fans are pretty hardcore. Remember that time they successfully crowdfunded the Foo Fighters’ return to Richmond? Then there was that video last year of an Italian man asking for 1,000 people to come together and perform a cover of “Learn To Fly” by the Foo Fighters in hopes of catching Dave Grohl’s attention. Amazingly, he did it. 1,000 ecstatic fans from around Italy came together, jammed in synchronization, and possibly broke a Guinness World Record, all to ask the band to play in the small northern Italian town Cesena. Now we just have to wait and see if the Foo Fighters will respond. Watch the jam session below.
UPDATE: In a post on their official website, the Foos comment, “Che bello, Cesena….” which translates to “How beautiful, Cesena.” Now, this doesn’t mean they’re agreeing to play a concert there, but it’s something.
UPDATE 2: Now they’ve tweeted, “Ci vediamo a presto, Cesena…. xxx Davide” which translates to “See you soon, David.”
