2015 – Romagna calling the Foo Fighters
An idea that takes shape, an ambitious goal, a steep road. Four miracles to be performed: find one thousand musicians, get them to play simultaneously for the biggest Rock show ever, collect enough money to make it real, convince the Foo Fighters to come and play a gig in Cesena.
Each goal has been achieved with a bang. The video of that performance makes millions of views all over the world, and on November 3rd, Foo Fighters give a unique live show in Cesena: a 3 hours concert dedicated to the Thousand, all the donors and the volunteers involved in the July performance.
2016 – Rockin’1000 That’s Live
The Thousand become “the biggest Rock Band on Earth”. Proof: a whole concert. 17 songs played all together at Manuzzi Stadium in Cesena.
The performance is caught on CD and vinyl.
Without the trust and the enthusiasm of everyone who has believed and has been involved in this dream (again: musicians, volunteers, donors), Rockin’1000 wouldn’t exist. Without an audience, who’s been part of the whole process, Rockin’1000 wouldn’t make sense.
After the first mission was accomplished, it was clear that the journey had just begun: at this point, quitting is not an option.
