Cesena

Foo Fighters have agreed to play a gig in Cesena, northern Italy after 1,000 fans learnt to play the band’s song ‘Learn To Fly’.

A video recently surfaced of 1,000 local musicians – drummers, vocalists and guitarists – covering the 1999 Foo Fighters track.

The performance was part of a campaign by fans in the Italian city to get Dave Grohl and his bandmates to play a gig in the local area.

Foo Fighters later took to Twitter to post messages that read “How nice, Cesena” and “See you soon” (translated from Italian). The tweets seemed to suggest the band will indeed play a gig in Cesena.
