Need a lift on this rainy Friday morning? Here's A THOUSAND people playing a Foo Fighters song

They’ve made Dave Grohl’s day anyway.

NOT CONTENT TO pursue the usual methods of booking a gig, these fans in Italy have hit on a novel way of convincing Dave Grohl to fly over and play a gig.

1,000 musicians came together to play the Foo Fighters classic ‘Learn to Fly’ in the hope of convincing the band to come.

Organisers set out the idea in this short post back in May.

The Foo Fighters are not in Romagna since 1997, it’s time to get them back, but we need a crazy idea.

And it looks like the whole thing worked out pretty well:

The event took a year’s work to organise, as creator Fabio Zaffagnini explained on the event’s website:

What we did here is a huge, huge miracle. One thousand rockers came from all over the nation at their own expense, and they just did one song – your song. We ask you, Foo Fighters, to come play for us.

Looks like their message hasn’t fallen on deaf ears, either…

(He’s telling them he’ll “see you soon”).
