foo fighters and the big umbrella
In the realm of legendary rock royalty, few figures shine as brightly as Dave Grohl, the frontman of the alternative rock band Foo Fighters. As the band embarked on their ‘But We Are Here’ Australian tour, Grohl found a moment amidst the whirlwind of performances to partake in a heartwarming endeavour by surprising volunteers at the Big Umbrella Foundation (TBU) and extending a helping hand at Federation Square. Grohl joined local volunteers, personally distributing meals to those facing challenges while embodying the true spirit of giving back. In temperatures of more than 35 degrees, he not only joined volunteers to serve those enduring tough times but also paid for the ‘once-off American-style barbecue’ supplied by his catering company @backbeatbbq and lingered to sign autographs after people realised who the guy was with the tongs.
The Foo Fighters toured Australia, hitting the stage in Melbourne twice this week before their Sydney and Brisbane shows. Despite a gruelling tour schedule, Grohl helped hand out the meals #feedmelbourne before boarding Revesco’s Gulfstream IV SP and jetting out and briefly unwinding en route to join his bandmates for the Sydney leg of the tour.
This convergence of music and philanthropy showcases Grohl’s compassion, further solidifying his stature beyond the realm of rock music. This act not only illuminated the power of unity but also celebrated the profound impact individuals like Grohl can make by leveraging their influence for the betterment of community and morale.
The Big Umbrella
TBU operations manager Victoria Wilson said that while the fact that the former Nirvana drummer would be there had to be kept ‘top secret,’ the musician was keen to oversee every part of the process to ensure our friends on the street enjoyed all of his efforts.
Despite their gruelling tour schedule, Grohl took time out by surprising volunteers at the Big Umbrella Foundation when he rocked up again on Friday morning to work the line.
A big shout out to whole @frontiertouring family, together we cooked, served and shared 430 meals for our friends on the streets… a heartfelt thank you to everyone… you rocked our world ❤️ @thebigumbrella
Melbourne rock legend the late Michael Gudinski was known to have worked closely with TBU and played a big role in setting up the Big Umbrella kitchen in Brunswick during the pandemic, now dubbed MG’s Kitchen, which continues to reflect his enduring legacy.
