Fire Fight Concert Australia Raises $6.7M
Australian and international artists including Queen + Adam Lambert, Alice Cooper and John Farnham teamed up Sunday raising almost $10 million AUD/$6.7 million USD to help Australians recover from recent devastating wildfires.
The concert, which clocked in at almost 10 hours, took place at ANZ Stadium in Sydney Olympic Park, with profits from ticket sales, as well as contributions going to organizations providing short, medium & long term “Rescue”, “Relief & Recovery” and “Rehabilitation” assistance in fire-affected areas.
Highlights from the concert included Queen with new frontman Adam Lambert reprising the band’s legendary appearance at Bob Geldof’s Ethiopian famine relief benefit, Live Aid, with a 22-minute set that included “Bohemian Rhapsody,” “Radio Ga Ga,” “Hammer to Fall,” “Crazy Little Thing Called Love,” “We Will Rock You,” and “We Are the Champions.”
