In a heartwarming wave of generosity, it has just been announced that some of the biggest names in music, from around the world will band together next month to raise money for the devastating Australian bushfires.

Queen, Alice Cooper and Olivia Newton-John will be headlining up the mammoth bill of big-name international and Aussie artists at Sydney’s ANZ Stadium on Sunday, February 16. Other names on the bill include k.d. lang, Daryl Braithwaite, John Farnham, Icehouse, Tina Arena and many more, with some still to be announced.

A statement on the organiser's website reads: "Fire Fight Australia will see ANZ Stadium in Sydney Olympic Park play host to international and local music icons as they unite to share one stage for Australia during its time of need."

The nine-hour concert will be hosted by comedian Celeste Barber whose Facebook fundraiser has raised more than $50 million for bushfire appeals. All proceeds from the event will go toward a number of different organisations that are working to fight the ongoing fires.

There will be 70,000 tickets available at three different price points – $70, $85, and $100 – with an option to make further contributions to bushfire relief during purchase. Organisers have announced that all concert ticket profits and all contributions through Ticketek will go towards key organisations providing vital “Rescue”, “Relief and Recovery” and “Rehabilitation.”

Tickets go on sale today (Jan 13) at noon Australian Eastern Standard Time on the Fire Fight Australia website. Get yours HERE
