What does it sound like when over 1,000 people perform David Bowie's "Rebel Rebel" together? You can find out by watching this recent performance from Rockin'1000, a group of volunteer musicians who call themselves the "biggest rock band on Earth."
The band, which includes members from around the world and of all ages, performed a rousing tribute to the late musician last week at Orogel Stadium in Cesena, Italy. Singers, guitarists, drummers, bassists, keyboardists, violinists, and even bagpipe players combined their sounds to bring the song to life like never before.
A year ago the band gathered to perform the Foo Fighters' "Learn to Fly." Video of that performance has received more than 32 million views on YouTube.
Rockin'1000 founder Fabio Zaffagnini delivered an inspiring speech during the concert in which he summed up the band's message of togetherness.
Last year, we did something extraordinary. Someone called it a revolution. But this, what you're seeing here behind me: this is the revolution. Musicians from all over the world came together and are giving us an incredible live show. They're just like themselves, but they perform like rock stars, with no one standing out — showing us that with passion, dedication, and fucking hard work, we can transform our lives. So stick together, no more conflicts and play rock 'n' roll.
