Earlier this week, 1,000 musicians in Cesena, Italy played a simultaneous rendition of the Foo Fighters' 'Learn to Fly' in a bid to get the US band to play a gig in their city (video above) ... and it worked a treat.

Lead singer Dave Grohl has now responded with a message in Italian to say: "We're coming, I swear."

Rockin 1,000, who organised the event, explained how they were trying to get the rock band to come and play in Cesena.

After the song is played group founder Fabio Zaffagnini says: "I guess this video is going to be seen by a huge amount of people all over the world, but to be true it's been conceived to be addressed just to five people.

"So to Chris, Pat, Nate, Taylor and Dave Grohl, the Foo Fighters. Italy is a country where dreams cannot easily come true, but it's a land of passion and creativity. So what we did here is just a huge miracle."

In the video response (below) Dave says: "Hello Cesena. It's David. Hi. I am sorry I don't speak Italian, just a bit, a bit.

"This video, was good! Super nice. Thank you so much.

"We're coming, I swear. We'll see each other soon. Thank you so much. I love you. Ciao"
