Italy town petitions for Foo Fighters concert with band's song

People who live in Cesena, Italy, really like the Foo Fighters.

A YouTube video (warning: expletive at 4:46 mark) surfaced online that shows 1,000 fans playing the band's hit song "Learn to Fly" in unison, all to get a concert in town.

The collaboration is very impressive. Hundreds of drumsets, guitars, voices and a thousand enthusiastic fans come together to be a perfect orchestra.

Fabio Zaffagnini, the creative behind the cover, says he worked on the project for more than one year "thinking about how to make it real."

"Our call is to ask you, the Foo Fighters, to come and play for us," he says.

It turns out the request worked.

Late Thursday night, Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl took to the band's Twitter account to send out a tweet in Italian that says (according to online translation), "See you soon, Cesena.... xxx David."
