One thousand musicians gathered in Italy this week to perform the Foo Fighters song "Learn to Fly," as part of an effort to bring the band to Cesena — a northern city of about 100,000 people. The Rockin' 1000 event was organized last year by Fabio Zaffagnini, who described the performance as a "huge, huge miracle." Zaffagnini used crowdfunding to raise more than $50,000 for the performance, with the hope that it would convince Dave Grohl and his bandmates to hold a concert in Cesena. It seems to have worked. The band later tweeted a link to the video, writing: "Ci vediamo a presto, Cesena," which means "See you soon, Cesena."
