What happens when 1,000 people gather to pay tribute to music legend David Bowie? Rockin’ 1000, the self-proclaimed largest rock band in the world, would like to show you. 

On Monday, the group shared a video from their first-ever concert, “That’s Live,” which took place at Orogel Stadium in Cesena, Italy, in July. The clip gives people like us (who weren’t there) a little taste of the epic nature of the performance. It really is a beautiful thing to see this many people come together to honor one of the greatest musicians of our time. 

The group first went viral with their cover of “Learn To Fly” by The Foo Fighters, which was also a successful bid to get the band to play a show in Cesena. 

Rockin’ 1000 is made up of hundreds of guitarists, drummers, bass players, singers, keyboardists and even a few bagpipe players. Anyone can volunteer to become a member ― all you have to do is fill out an application form on their website
