Queen writes history at the "Fire Fight Australia"
Closed

Queen and Adam Lambert wrote history on Sunday, linking two of the biggest charitable music events, Live Aid in London, 1985, and Fire Fight Australia, in Sydney, on Sunday. Fire Fight Australia, attended by thousands of spectators, aims to collect $ 10 million after devastating fires in this country.The amount collected is intended for firefighters who have struggled with vegetation fires, affected communities, but also animal rescue organizations.

Queen sang the same set of songs she performed at the Live Aid mega-concert, the only difference being that, in 1985, they had Freddie Mercury as a soloist, and on Sunday was Adam Lambert. The Fire Fight Australia event (#FireFightAustralia) brought to the ANZ stadium in Sydney a series of international and local stars united on the same stage in order to raise funds for Australia.

70,000 Australians filled the stadium in Sydney. Alice Cooper, Queen and Ronan Keating were just a few of the artists who attended the event. The concert lasted no less than ten hours.

33 people died in Australia's fires, one billion animals were killed and 12 million hectares of vegetation destroyed. On Saturday, authorities announced that they had managed to bring the outbreaks of the worst affected region under control. Over 2,000 homes in Australia have been destroyed from September 2019 until January this year. Thousands have suffered from the evacuations.

I haven't attended a humanitarian concert, but I think that's really amazing. I've always thought that famous people have a tremendous ability to make a difference, both with their own money, and with their exposure. Their opinions matter. Their voices matter. I think they really have an obligation to use their status to do good and help people.

This is so cool and wonderful that Queen did this. I loved Adam Lambert on American Idol and I hope to see him in person one day. I have attended and performed at many small humanitarian concerts. In our town when someone is in financial need due to a medical issue or any tragedy we step up and do a concert to raise money for them.
