The star-studded benefit concert Fire Fight Australia will be broadcast live on television later this month.
Fire Fight Australia, which takes place at the ANZ Stadium in Sydney on February 16, will be aired live on Channel Seven, as well as the Foxtel-owned cable networks FOX8 and [V], from 1pm AEDT. Coverage of the ten-hour event will also be available on on-demand services Foxtel Now, Foxtel GO and 7plus.
Throughout the benefit, donations for bushfire relief will be accepted through the Fire Fight Australia website, with proceeds going to the Foundation for Rural & Regional Renewal’s Fire Fight Fund.
The concert boasts a lineup of international musicians, including Queen + Adam Lambert, Canadian singer k. d. lang and rocker Alice Cooper. Locals celebrities such as Olivia Newton-John, Hilltop Hoods, Amy Shark and more will also perform at the benefit.
On January 24, it was announced that more tickets to Fire Fight Australia had been released and that 5 Seconds Of Summer and Michael Bublé would join the lineup. Fire Fight Australia had previously sold out within an hour of tickets going on sale. Additional tickets are currently still available via Ticketek.
As previously reported, Delta Goodrem will also perform her new ballad ‘Let It Rain’, a song she released earlier this month to fundraise for bushfire relief, at Fire Fight Australia for the very first time live. Meanwhile, Celeste Barber, who made headlines for her $50million bushfire fundraiser, will host the concert.
In an earlier statement, Fire Fight Australia organiser TEG said: “This national initiative will raise money for relief from the bushfires that continue to devastate communities and challenge emergency services in rural and regional Australia.”
