Foo Fighters Respond to 1,000-Person "Learn to Fly"
On Thursday, the Rockin1000 campaign released a video of 1,000 Foo Fighters fans simultaneously playing the band's 1999 hit "Learn to Fly" in an effort to convince Dave Grohl and company to play a concert in their hometown of Cesena [cheh ZAY nah), Italy.
Well, it looks like the idea worked, since the band has now responded to the video by indicating via Twitter that they'll perform in the Foo-hungry city.
"Ci vediamo a presto, Cesena," (chee veh dee AH mo ah presto, che ZAY nah), Foo Fighters tweeted Thursday night, which translates from the Italian to "See you soon, Cesena."
Since it was released just a day ago, the video has racked up more than 4.5 million views. "This video is going to be seen by a huge amount of people all over the world," the campaign's founder,Fabio Zaffagnini says in the clip. "But it's been conceived to address just five people: Chris [Shiflett], Pat [Smear], Nate [Mendel], Taylor [Hawkins] and Dave Grohl...the Foo Fighters."
Foo Fighters will begin their European tour in November after they finish their current North American trek, which concludes October 18 in Castaic, California.
