With so many lives lost, countless homes destroyed, an estimated one billion animals killed and around 11 million hectares of Australia’s pristine bushland razed,  TEG Dainty and TEG Live are proud to present a spectacular line up of artists to perform at Fire Fight Australia on Sunday 16 February 2020 at ANZ Stadium, Sydney Olympic Park to raise money for National Bushfire Appeal.

The concert will be hosted by writer, actor and comedian Celeste Barber, who has already raised more than $50 million towards bushfire relief through her own record-breaking online appeal.
 
Global rock legends Queen + Adam Lambert will take a short break from their Australian ‘The Rhapsody Tour’ to grace the stage in Sydney for a second time in the wake of their sold out ANZ Stadium performance the night before to perform a special set. Grammy award winning Canadian singer songwriter k.d. lang will perform two songs including her stunning rendition of “Hallelujah”, the Leonard Cohen classic.  Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Famer Alice Cooper is also set to appear along with a cavalcade of Australian music industry heavy weights (in alphabetical order); Amy Shark, Baker Boy, Conrad Sewell, Daryl Braithwaite, Delta Goodrem, Grinspoon, Guy Sebastian, Hilltop Hoods, ICEHOUSE, Illy, Jessica Mauboy, John Farnham, Lee Kernaghan, Olivia Newton-John, Peking Duk, Pete Murray, Tina Arena and William Barton with many more to be announced.
