Alice Cooper, Queen And More To Play Australian Bushfire Relief Concert
A Live Aid-esque stadium concert has been announced to raise money for the Australian bushfire relief.
Fire Fight Australia takes place on February 16 at ANZ Stadium in Sydney Olympic Park, and features a selection of primarily Australian artists including Delta Goodrem and John Farnham, but also shock rock icon Alice Cooper and iconic pop-rockers Queen & Adam Lambert.
Tickets are on sale now and all profits go toward national bushfire relief, including: rural and regional fire services, Red Cross Disaster Relief and Recover and RSPCA Bushfire Appeal. If you can’t attend but still want to make a donation, you can do so here.
More artists are scheduled to be announced, but here’s the Fire Fight Australia lineup so far (in alphabetical order):

Last week, Australian metal crew Parkway Drive donated $50,000 to the relief effort, as well as setting up a GoFundMe page.
Elsewhere, Fit For An Autopsy raised over $6000 for World Wildlife Fund Australia by selling left over merchandise.
The Ghost Inside also held a fundraising event in Victoria, Australia, this week ahead of their set at UNIFY Gathering. “There’s no way we could come here at this time, see what’s going on, and not try to do our part,” said the band.
Alice Cooper’s Detroit Stories and Architects’ For Those That Wish To Exist are battling it out in the UK charts this week.
My Chemical Romance have announced the rescheduled dates for their long-awaited comeback tour.
