Footage taken of the stunt shows the huge group of musicians lined up in a field in the northern city of Cesena playing the band's 1999 anthem Learn to Fly.

The stunt was carried out in a bid to persuade the band to play a show in the area when they visit northern Italy in November (15), and the rockers showed their appreciation by sharing a video of the performance online with the caption "Che bello, Cesena," which translates as "How beautiful, Cesena."
