Foo Fighters Will Come To Italy After Seeing 1,000 Musicians Cover ‘Learn To Fly’

Huh, I guess all it takes is five million people watching your video of 1,000 musicians playing the same song to get your favorite band to travel to a different country to perform for you. Who knew it was so easy? A day after Rockin’ 1,000’s impressively massive cover of Foo Fighters’ “Learn to Fly” went super-mega-viral, Dave Grohl & Co. responded approvingly on Twitter:

In English, that’s “How nice, Cesena” and “See you soon,” implying they’ll visit the city soon. Grohl confirmed that trip in a Facebook video later in the day.

Thanks to Consequence of Sound, here’s a rough translation:

Hello Cesena, I’m David, hi, and I’m sorry, I can’t speak Italian, just a little, just a little bit. This video.. beautiful, really beautiful! Thank you so much. We are coming, I promise. See you soon! Thank you very much, love you, bye.

If the 2,072 people who live on Christmas Island cover Nirvana’s “Territorial Pissings,” do you think they could get Kurt Cobain to resurrect from the dead? Ball’s in your court, Kurt.
