The concert, dubbed Fire Fight Australia, will be held at Sydney’s 83,500-capacity ANZ Stadium on Sunday 16 February and is expected to run from 3 p.m. to 10 p.m.
“This is a major musical event which will see globally-renowned artists from Australia and around the world come together to perform and show solidarity with people whose lives have been disrupted by the bushfires,” reads a statement from the TEG-owned promoters.
