Foo Fighters Play Learn To Fly Viral Video Request Show

(hennemusic) The Foo Fighters played a show in Cesena, Italy on Tuesday after 1000 fans performed their 1999 hit, "Learn To Fly", on July 26 in hopes of convincing the group to come to their city.

Rockin1000 organizer Fabio Zaffagnini spent a year planning the massive outdoor event to create a video as a plea to the Foo Fighters to come to Cesena. The clip quickly went viral, racking up more than 18 million views in just 5 days; it's now been seen more than 26 million times.

"Tonight," Dave Grohl told the crowd at Carisport, "we're here for a very, very special reason. So, let me tell you - this has never happened before. This is like a revolution."

"To see you people, singing our song for the whole f***ing world, to me, it's the greatest moment of my life," he continued. "Of course we couldn't say no, we had to come. You trapped us, we had to come here."

The Foo Fighters delivered a full show and thanked the Rockin1000 participants by opening the set with "Learn To Fly" and, later, invited some of the organizers on stage - including "Mohawk Guy", who sat in on drums for the band's cover of the Queen classic "Under Pressure."
