Rockin’1000, an Italian group of 1,000 musicians who honored the Foo Fighters in 2015, released the video of their show with the iconic Courtney Love.
This was the first time that the super band played alongside a famous band big, having already honored groups such as Beatles, The White Stripes, Nirvana and more.

The presentation with Love took place in July this year at the Artemio Franchi stadium in Florence. For now only the video of the performance of “Celebrity Skin,” the album of the same name released by Hole in 1998, was released. The singer also featured “Malibu” and “Olympia”, the second of the album Live Through This (1994), at the time.
Speaking about the presentation, Courtney Love cited the Foo Fighters tribute as a motivation to participate in the project.
“The first time I saw the Rockin’1000 video, I thought, ‘I want to do it!’ Seeing and hearing a thousand musicians connecting with their audience in this open, cross-cultural way was incredible. It reminded me of the beginning of the punk scene, that is community centering on diversity and acceptance.”
