Watch 1,200 Fans in Italy Play Nirvana, AC/DC, The White Stripes Classics


After succeeding in bringing Foo Fighters to the town of Cesana, Rockin’ 1000 did not rest on laurels too long…

August 2, 2016

Of course, you remember how last year in Cesana, Italy, a thousand of rock musicians, all of them Foo Fighters’ fans, got together and pulled out an awesome live performance of ‘Learn To Fly’ in an attempt to bring Dave Grohl and Co. to the city. The project was a sheer success all the way, from the fruitful crowd-funding campaign to spreading the word to their following event with ‘Saint Cecilia’.

And the effort did not go unnoticed – Foo Fighters added Cesana to their tour route, and during the show Grohl told the Rockin’ 1000: “This is like a revolution!”, “You know the whole world saw what you did, right? Millions and millions of people saw what you did. It’s a beautiful thing. Congratulations everybody.”

Did the founder of the project, Fabio Zaffagnini, and his friends stop at that? Oh, no! Performing with such power means off-scale energy, uniting you with hundreds of like-minded people, so the crowd got together again – but this time for a full show!

More than 1,200 musicians rehearsed and then gave a full-fledged concert, including Nirvana, AC/DC and The White Stripes hits, plus many more. Watch below how Rockin’ 1000 truly rock Nirvana’s undying ‘Smells Like Teen Spirit.’

In the following video you’ll find the thousand pull out AC/DC’s ‘It’s a Long Way to the Top’. Not only will you see musicians playing typical rock instruments but also violinists, bagpipe players and what not! (via Loudwire). Below, you will also see the Rockin’ 1000 play the White Stripes’ ‘classic ‘Seven Nation Army’. The live set included also the hits from Led Zeppelin, Jimi Hendrix and the Beatles.
