    Foo Fighters serenade 1,000 fans behind “Learn to Fly” performance with concert in Cesena, Italy
    "Of course we couldn't say no, we had to come."
    BY ALEX YOUNG

    • Over the summer, a group of rock ‘n’ roll fans in Cesena, Italy came up with a novel idea: Gather 1,000 musicians together for a live performance of Foo Fighters’ “Learn to Fly” with the hope that it would compel the actual band to visit their fair city, population of 97,131. Well, it worked. Earlier this evening, Foo Fighters entertained those involved in the “Rockin’1000” campaign by performing “Learn to Fly” and a bunch of other ones at a small venue called Carisport.

    “To see you people singing our song for the whole fucking world, to me, it’s the greatest moment of my life,” explained Dave Grohl to the audience. “Of course we couldn’t say no, we had to come. You trapped us, we had to come here.”

    He then compelled the crowd to launch similar campaigns for other rock bands, “I hope you do the same thing for U2, Pearl Jam, Soundgarden, Rage Against the Machine, do it for all rock bands. And if they say no, you know what you say? Vaffanculo!” (That’s Italian for “fuck you.”)

    As for the actual performance, Foo Fighters raged through a career-spanning 27-song set that kicked off, appropriately, with “Learn to Fly” and also featured an extended mashup of covers including Rush’s “Tom Sawyer”, Sex Pistols’ “God Save the Queen”, and the MTV theme song. They also brought up some of the organizers behind Rockin’1000, including “Mohawk Guy,” who played drums for “Under Pressure”.




    Setlist:
    Learn to Fly
    All My Life
    Times Like These
    Breakout
    Something From Nothing

    Tom Sawyer -> Another One Bites The Dust -> God Save The Queen -> MTV Theme Song -> Radio GaGa -> Miss You
    Cold Day in the Sun
    My Hero
    Under Pressure (Queen cover) (with “Mohawk guy” from the Rockin’1000 video on drums)
    Miss You (The Rolling Stones cover)
    Best of You
    I’ll Stick Around
    These Days
    This Is a Call
    In the Flesh? (Pink Floyd cover)
    Skin and Bones

    Still haven't decided if Grohl's "Iron Throne" setup is awesome or ridiculous.

    I suppose it can be both.

    Cool clip. Especially all those drummers.


    ....but I always thought this was authentic Eye-talian rock and roll:

    Greaseman had a great bit about dating a much younger woman, "I listen to your FOO FIGHTERS". Back when they were the new thing. Time flies.

    That's what I'm wondering. I saw the Foo Fighters in July at Citifield and he just recently broke his leg (or was it an ankle?). How long does that shit take to heal? Even though he's sitting on his ass, the guy rocks. He gives 100% every show.
