Fan Assembling 1000 Member Foo Fighters Cover Band

(Radio.com) After Richmond successfully crowd-funded a Foo Fighters concert in their city, the idea seems to have struck a chord in other Foo-loving towns. But, not simply wanting to repeat a previous success story, an Italian village has come up with a unique plan to get the successful rock band to visit their home (via Stereogum).

As portrayed in a new online video, the locals of Cesena, Italy, are assembling a 1,000 person Foo Fighters cover band to record a version of their hit, "Learn to Fly."

Apparently the move is to impress the band, who are on the verge of launching a massive support effort of their recent Sonic Highways album in 2015. Ideally, Dave Grohl and company will be so enamored that they will make Cesena an impromptu tour stop.
