(hennemusic) A collective of volunteer musicians known as Rockin' 1000 performed David Bowie's 1974 classic, "Rebel Rebel", as part of a recent concert at Orogel Stadium in Cesena, Italy.

The July 24 event - billed as "That's Live" - saw singers, guitarists, drummers, bassists, keyboardists, violinists and bagpipe players deliver performances of tracks by The White Stripes, Nirvana, Led Zeppelin, The Rolling Stones and The Beatles, among others.

The lineup closed the concert with a finale of "Learn To Fly" by the Foo Fighters - a song Rockin' 1000 successfully offered via video in 2015 to attract the band to perform in their city; the YouTube video is now over 32 million views.

"Last year, we did something extraordinary," the group's founder, Fabio Zaffagnini, told the crowd. "Someone called it a revolution. But this, what you're seeing here behind me: this is the revolution.

"Musicians from all over the world came together and are giving us an incredible live show. They're just like themselves, but they perform like rock stars, with no one standing out - showing us that with passion, dedication and hard work, we can transform our lives.

"So stick together, no more conflicts and play rock n' roll." Check out the video of the Rockin' 1000's performance here.
