Line-Up Announced For Australian Fire Relief Benefit
Queen + Adam Lambert, Alice Cooper and Canada’s k.d. lang are among the acts performing next month at a concert to benefit Australia’s fire relief efforts.
Fire Fight Australia is the first of several benefit concerts announced earlier this month to set a date (Feb. 16) and a location (Sydney’s 83,500-seat ANZ Stadium).
The eclectic line-up also includes Olivia Newton-John and a slew of other Australian artists. The nine-hour concert will be hosted by comedian Celeste Barber, whose online campaign has already raised more than $50 million for bushfire relief.
Lang is set to perform two songs at the concert, including her cover of Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah.”
Tickets will be priced between $70 and $100 (approx. $63 to $90 CAD).
The line-up for the Sound Relief 2020 benefit concert, which is expected to be staged in late February or early March, will be announced soon.
