Learning to Fly performed by 1 000 musicians

A resident of Cesena, south of Venice in Italy is a big Foo Fighters fan, but the town was not on the concert schedule.

For the last year he has been inviting musicians all over Italy come together and practice the track Learning to Fly.

Yesterday those 1 000 musicians posted the result of their efforts with a plea to the Foo Fighters to perform in their town.

In a little over 24 hours the video had over 3,5 million views and more importantly, David Grohl posted on the Foo Fighters twitter account to say - Ci vediamo a presto, Cesena – See you soon.
