Queen, Alice Cooper and Olivia Newton-John are playing a huge bushfire relief show


Amid a mammoth slate of bushfire relief concerts happening across the country comes Fire Fight, a stadium benefit featuring performances from an all-star list of performers.

Set to go down at Sydney’s ANZ Stadium in February, Fire Fight will bring a smorgasbord of international and homegrown artists to the stage to raise money for bushfire rescue, relief, recovery and rehabilitation services.

Headlining the event, rock legends Queen and Adam Lambert will take a quick break from their Australian ‘The Rhapsody Tour’ to appear at the benefit with a special set. They aren’t the only big names on the bill, either, with the likes of k.d. lang, Alice Cooper, Olivia Newton-John and Tina Arena joining them on the lineup.

The marathon event, set to span upwards of nine hours, will also feature performances from Amy Shark, Baker Boy, Conrad Sewell, Daryl Braithwaite, Delta Goodrem, Grinspoon, Guy Sebastian, Hilltop Hoods, ICEHOUSE, Illy, Jessica Mauboy, John Farnham, Peking Duk, Pete Murray, and William Barton.

As if that’s not enough to have you reaching for your wallet, there are still more artists to be announced in the weeks to come.

The whole shebang will be hosted by comedy queen Celeste Barber, whose fundraising efforts for bushfire relief have already exceeded a record-breaking $50 million.

Tickets range from $70 and $100, with all profits going towards rural and regional fire services in affected states, Red Cross Disaster Relief and Recovery and The RSPCA Bushfire Appeal.

Fire Fight Australia is happening on Sunday February 16 at ANZ Stadium. Tickets are on sale from 12pm AEDT on Monday January 13.
