Foo Fighters fans in Italy hope to inspire the band to play their region
Foo Fighters have been announcing 2015 concerts, and a group of Italian Foo Fighters fans want to bring the guys to their town. The Italian fans have launched a crowd-funding campaign to get the Dave Grohl-fronted band to play a concert in Italy’s Romagna region. The group hopes to get 1,000 people to simultaneously play the Foo Fighters 1999 classic “Learn to Fly,” and in turn, they hope all the singing will inspire the band come to their home turf.
The Italian group is taking a cue from some other Foo Fighters fans who convinced Grohl and the bunch to play their city. Earlier this year, fans in Richmond, Va., started selling tickets to a Foo Fighters show in their city that wasn’t even on the band’s schedule. It worked, and Foo Fighters performed for the first time in more than 15 years in Richmond.
A group in the U.K. followed suit, also running a campaign asking the Foo Fighters to perform in Birmingham. The latter campaign was fully funded, but the Foos haven’t announced a Birmingham show as of yet.
