That Amazing Foo Fighters Video Actually Worked

Foo Fighters are heading to Italy.



Following the video of 1,000 people playing Foo Fighters' 'Learn To Fly' at the same time in a bid to get Dave Grohl and Co. to come play a show, a gig has now been confirmed.

Dave Grohl writes on the Foo Fighters' website

"I'll never forget that day that my phone was flooded with texts from friends, all saying 'Have you seen this???', 'Amazing!', 'So insane!' with an anonymous YouTube link attached. Assuming it was just another 'CAT GETTING STUCK IN A PAPER BAG' video, I didn't bite at first, but after the 10,000th message, I clicked the link and was absolutely blown away by what I saw. To see so many people put so much time, and effort, and love into making music moved me to tears. And the fact that it was a Foo Fighters song… well… it's hard to put into words how humbled that made me feel. It is without a doubt one of the most beautiful experiences of my entire life. I walked outside, sat on the grass, turned my camera on and immediately responded (in my best broken Italian). Ever since that day we have been looking forward to this incredible experience. We’re happy to finally announce that it will happen on 3 November at Carisport. We are beyond excited an honored to come play for Cesena. An experience like this comes once in a lifetime, so I’m looking forward to a once in a lifetime show." 

Dave Grohl there, once again proving to be the nicest guy in rock.

And in case you forgot, here's the video...
