The Foo Fighters Repay That Italian Town Who Turned Out to Perform “Learn to Fly”

Earlier this year, a thousand Foo Fighters fans turned out to perform “Learn to Fly” in an effort to lure the band to play a show in Cesena, Italy. It looked like this.

If you’re the Foo Fighters, how could you say no? They didn’t–and this week, the Foos flew into Cesena.

Naturally, they dedicated “Learn to Fly” to everyone.

And it was only right that some representatives from the Rockin’ 1000 got to perform with the band onstage.
