For over a year, an Italian man by the name of Fabio Saffagnini has been working on one of the most ambitious and epic feats of musical performance that you will ever see.
The rocking 1,000 is essentially just what it sounds like: a local band in the Romagna region of Italy, they just happen to have 1,00 members. According to their website, the whole concept started back in May of 2014: “The Foo Fighters have not been in Romagna since 1997, it’s time to get them back, but we needed a crazy idea.
We had to organize something that kicks ass worldwide and can be seen by Dave Grohl: we will ask one thousand rockers to play one of their songs, all together and at the same time.” Well, That “crazy idea” came together over the next 14 months Fabio, and the other coordinators efforts were tireless, and the end result is simply stunning.
In a speech at the end of the performance, Fabio says ” Italy is a country where dreams cannot easily come true…but it is a land of passion and creativity.” After watching the video, I don’t think he could have said it better…
And Just in case you were wondering, Yes – Dave Grohl has seen the video, and YES…the Foo FIghters are headed t Italy.
