Hold everything, music fanatics unite. Because the most important concert you will attend this year is coming in quickly and with a good cause, there is no excuse not to head to ANZ Stadium next month.
Since October, bushfires have ravaged much of the east coast, south coast and inland along Queensland, New South Wales, Victoria and South Australia but while the season started like it normally would, conditions got worse, quickly. The very best in humanity on an international scale has been shown in recent weeks with millions of dollars raised to go towards bushfire recovery. Now, the effort will continue on the big-stage with Fire Fight Australia.
Set to take place on Sunday, February 16, Australia’s biggest names in music which includes Amy Shark, Guy Sebastian, Daryl Braithwaite, John Farnham and Hilltop Hoods as well as international sensation Queen and Adam Lambert will head to one of Sydney’s biggest stadiums for a concert like no other. Hosted by the woman who inspired a $50 million+ Facebook fundraising page, Celeste Barber, all concert ticket profits and all contributions through Ticketek will go towards likes of RSPCA, the Red Cross and local rural and regional fire services to aid recovery for both humans and wildlife.
Tickets are on sale from Monday, January 13 at 12 noon. Buy them here.
