Dave Grohl and the Foo Fighters had a fantastic summer amusing concertgoers with all sorts of fun antics. Their infectious alt-rock cheer couldn’t touch every corner of the globe, however, which is what motivated 1,000 Italian fans to perform the group’s classic “Learn To Fly” in hopes of enticing the musicians to play a gig in the country’s Romagna region.

Grohl didn’t take long to respond (in Italian!) and promise that the Foo Fighters would soon visit Cesena, where fans recorded the video. Now he’s shared an update for the show, scheduled for Nov. 3 at Cesena’s Carisport.

“I’ll never forget that day that my phone was flooded with texts from friends” sharing the video, Grohl wrote on the band’s Facebook page. “Assuming it was just another ‘CAT GETTING STUCK IN A PAPER BAG’ video, I didn’t bite at first, but after the 10,000th message, I clicked the link and was absolutely blown away by what I saw. … An experience like this comes once in a lifetime, so I’m looking forward to a once in a lifetime show.”
