Fire Fight Australia
Queen, John Farnham, Celeste Barber and more will take the stage at this nine-hour gig raising money for bushfire relief.
January 13, 2020
Even with a slew of fundraising shows, feasts and classes, Australia's bushfire relief effort is set to score plenty more live, loud support, when an impressive group of big name Aussie and international artists come together for a huge fundraising gig at ANZ Stadium next month.
And when we say big name, we mean it. The show — which will kick off at 1pm on Sunday, February 18 — is headline by a little band called Queen. Queen! The legendary band is in town for a national tour with Adam Lambert, who'll also be taking the stage. There are only a few seats left to their Sydney show on the Saturday night, so if you've been keen to see them in the flesh and chuck some money to some worthy charities, this might be your best option.
Especially as Queen is just one of the artists on the bill for the nine-hour show. If you grab a ticket, you'll also get to see sets by local festival favourites Amy Shark, Baker Boy and Peking Duk, and long-serving Aussie artists Delta Goodrem and Jessica Mauboy, and even Alice Cooper and K.D Lang. Your need for nostalgia will be looked after, too, as John Farnham, Daryl Braithwaite and Tina Arena are also set to play. Plus, fundraising queen Celeste Barber will be the event's host.
Tickets cost $100 (or $70–85 if you want a seat), and will go on sale at midday today, Monday, January 13.
All profits from ticket sales will be donated to a group of charities, namely the Red Cross Disaster Relief and Recovery, the RSPCA Bushfire Appeal, and rural and regional fire services in each affected state. You can also donate extra to these charities on the event website.
