ITALY – Rockin ’1000, the largest rock band on Earth, whose concerts feature literally a thousand musicians playing music at the same time, are coming to the Eurovision 2022 Song Contest.
The band is going to invite its members to record something special in Turin, regarding the promotion of their show that will be part of the Eurovision Song Contest which will be broadcast next May.
“We will take part in the Eurovision Song Contest in Turin! We will record the commercial that will be used throughout Europe and another special content, to be broadcasted live in May. Musicians and singers are needed and will join from all over Europe! Recordings will take place on 7-8 April, and you have time to subscribe until the 31st of March, but be fast! Available places will run out in a blink of an eye!”
The Rockin ‘1000 was created when Fabio Zaffagnini, a marine geologist, envisioned the Foo Fighters playing in his hometown of Cesena in 2014. Fabio imagined 1,000 musicians playing their most notable hit, “Learn to Fly” simultaneously, designed to create the largest tribute ever made.
With a lot of hard work, determination and a lot of fans, on July 26, 2015, 1,000 rockers played wonderfully “Learn to Fly” together, even catching the attention of Dave Grohl’s Foo Fighters.
The gigantic ensemble arrived in Turin’s Piazza San Carlo earlier today, attracting 500 musicians from all over Europe, including singers, drummers, bassists, and guitarists, to play a new rendition of the Te Deum, which will be published on Saturday, April 16th.
This amazing spectacle was followed by a unique performance by the musicians to the tune of John Lennon’s Give Peace A Chance, delivering an emotional moment devoted to music and peace, the fundamental topic of the 66th Eurovision Song Contest.
