Queen + Adam Lambert and Olivia Newton-John are two of the many artists that will perform at a special benefit concert on February 16 in Sydney, Australia, to raise money for bushfire relief as the country continues to battle the fires that have caused so much devastation Down Under.
The show, dubbed Fire Fight Australia, will be held at ANZ Stadium at Sydney Olympic Park, and also will feature Alice Cooper, k.d. lang, ex-Little River Band singer John Farnham, Icehouse, Tina Arena and many others.
Queen and Lambert’s performance will take place a day after the veteran rock act plays a full headlining concert at the same venue as part of the Australian leg of their Rhapsody Tour.
All profits from ticket sales will benefit a variety of relief organizations, including rural and regional fire services, Red Cross Disaster Relief and Recovery, and the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals’ Bushfire Appeal.
Tickets went on sale at noon local time today at the Ticketek Australia website, Ticketek.com.au. People who aren’t able to attend the Fire Fight Australia concert can still donate to the cause via FireFightAustralia.com and the Ticketek website.
Since the bushfires began in September of 2019, 20 people have been killed, more than 2,000 buildings have been destroyed and hundreds of millions of animals have perished.
