Courtney Love To Collaborate With Foo Fighters Supergroup
18 April 2018, 12:01
Love is set to take part in a show with the Rockin’ 1000 - the mammoth group of guitarists who covered Learn To Fly.
Back in the summer of 2015, a group of disappointed Italian Foo Fighters fans got Dave Grohl’s attention when when they created a video of 1000 musicians performing Learn To Fly in a bid to have the Foos play a gig in their hometown of Cesena in Italy.
The video went viral and Big Dave Grohl and the band were so touched they granted their wishes, playing a gig in the town on 3 November with a whopping 27-song set!
Dave said on the night: “This is like a revolution. Who’s in the Rockin’1000? Crazy motherf**kers.”
Now, the Rockin’ 1000 are back with a show called That’s Live 2018 that will take place on Saturday 21 July at the Artemio Franchi Stadium in Florence, Italy - and their special guest is Courtney Love.
