We lost musician David Bowie in 2016. This group, Rockin’ 1000 did an amazing tribute to the late singer back in the summer of 2016.
Rockin’1000 is a volunteer band made up of over 1,000 musicians. The group took over the Orogel Stadium in Cesena, Italy one weekend. The self-proclaimed “world’s largest band” was split into teams based on instruments. There was a section of drummers, a section of bassists, and a section of singers grouped by threes and fours around microphones. They did an amazing cover of Bowie’s infamous song Rebel Rebel.
The group’s founder, Fabio Zaffagnini, tells the audience:
“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.”
