Seven years ago, the Rockin’10000 was founded to cover Foo Fighters’ “Learn To Fly” in an attempt to get the band to visit the town of Cesena, Italy. Since its inception, the Rockin’10000 has continued to celebrate rock music by bringing together as many musicians as they can.
This was the group’s first performance since 2019. Previously, the Rockin’1000 have covered tracks by the Ramones, Queen, Steppenwolf and more.
