Watch: 1,000 musicians in Italy request a visit from Foo Fighters, Dave Grohl accepts

One thousand singers, drummers and guitarists in Cesena, Italy, gathered in a field to play the Foo Fighters’ “Learn to Fly,” in a large-scale musical request for the band to come play for them. The project took over a year to organize.

In the video, organizer Fabio Zaffagnini asks Dave Grohl, Pat Smear, Nate Mendel, Taylor Hawkins and Chris Shiflett to make the trip to Italy for their superfans. “Italy is a country where dreams cannot easily come true,” Zaffagnini said. “But it’s a land of passion and creativity.”

Dave Grohl and the rest of the band accepted the invitation.

The video has been viewed over 6 million times since it was posted to YouTube one day ago.
