Global rock legends Queen + Adam Lambert will take a short break from their Australian ‘Rhapsody Tour’ to grace the stage in Sydney for a second time in the wake of their sold out ANZ Stadium performance the night before to perform a special set at ‘Fire Fight Australia’ on Sunday, 16 February, to help raise money for national bushfire relief.
Fire Fight Australia (#FireFightAustralia) will see Sydney’s ANZ Stadium play host to international and local music icons as they unite to share one stage for Australia during its time of need, with an estimated one billion animals killed and around 11 million hectares of Australia’s pristine bushland razed. Fire Fight Australia will be hosted by writer, actor and comedian Celeste Barber, who has already raised more than $50 million towards bushfire relief through her own record-breaking online appeal.
Elsewhere on the bill, Grammy Award winning Canadian singer songwriter k.d. lang will perform two songs including her rendition of ‘Hallelujah’, the Leonard Cohen classic. Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Famer Alice Cooper is also set to appear along with a cavalcade of Australian music industry heavy weights (in alphabetical order): Amy Shark, Baker Boy, Conrad Sewell, Daryl Braithwaite, Delta Goodrem, Grinspoon, Guy Sebastian, Hilltop Hoods, ICEHOUSE, Illy, Jessica Mauboy, John Farnham, Lee Kernaghan, Olivia Newton-John, Peking Duk, Pete Murray, Tina Arena and William Barton with many more to be announced.
Collectively, this all-star list of performers has sold approximately half a billion records. The 9+ hour concert offers fans a unique opportunity to witness some of the most influential and successful songwriters of all time, all on the one stage and in support of national bushfire relief.
Fire Fight Australia will kick off from 1pm and run till late at ANZ Stadium, Sydney Olympic Park on Sunday 16 February 2020. Tickets go on sale at 12 Noon (AEDT) today and are priced at $100, $85 and $70 with an option to make further contributions to bushfire relief during purchase. All concert ticket profits will go towards key organisations providing vital rescue, relief, recovery and rehabilitation.
