Courtney Love Performs With 1,500 Musicians In Italy

Courtney Love achieved a rare feat by performing with 1,500 musicians at the Artemio Franchi Stadium in Florence, Italy, as part of a benefit concert, That’s Live 2018, on July 21.

The Italian amateur music group Rockin’1000, which now consists of 1,500 members, released the video of their July performance with Love, on October 15.

The concert, attended by more than 20,000 people, supported San Patrignano, a community program for drug addiction rehabilitation and social integration.

“The first time I saw the Rockin’1000 video, I thought, ‘I want to do that! The sight and sound of a thousand musicians connecting with their audience in this open, transcultural way was incredible,” said Love on the website of event collaborator, Only The Brave Foundation.

“It reminded me of the early punk scene, with its community centered around diversity and acceptance. And after I learned about Rockin’1000’s and Only the Brave Foundation’s commitment to San Patrignano, a charity dedicated to fighting addiction and social exclusion, I knew I had to be a part of it.”
