The Foo Fighters are incredibly popular with rock fans – and none more so than those in the Italian town of Cesena.

So desperate are the denizens of Cesena, just west of Rimini, to see their favourite rock ‘n’ rollers live that they got together to record this incredible video of hundreds of them performing the Foos’ ‘Learn to Fly’. One thousand of them, in fact.

And it looks like it’s worked – as Foo Fighers main man, Dave Grohl, posted the viral video on his Twitter feed along with the words “ci vediamo a presto, Cesena” (”see you soon Cesena”) and the words “F**K YES”.

The huge crowd of drummers, bassists, guitarists and singers gave a note-perfect rendition of the tune in the hope that Grohl and Co see it and get inspired to include them on their next European itinerary.

As one of the organisers says: “Italy is not a land where dreams can easily come true… but it’s a land of passion and creativity.

“So our call is for you, The Foo Fighters, to come and play for us. Please!”

If this video doesn’t leave a smile on your face then nothing will.
