Queen and Alice Cooper are among the artists confirmed on the bill for a concert benefitting fire relief efforts in Australia next month.

Already sold out, the Fire Fight Australia show will take place at Sydney's ANZ Stadium on February 16 to raise funds aiding the bushfire relief efforts. Also featured in the line up are performers Olivia Newton-John, K.D. Lang, John Farnham, Pete Murray and more.

“With so many lives lost, countless homes destroyed, an estimated 1 billion animals killed and around 11 million hectares of Australia’s pristine bushland razed, TEG Dainty and TEG Live are proud and humbled to present a spectacular lineup of artists to perform at Fire Fight Australia,” describes the event website. “Fire Fight Australia will see ANZ Stadium play host to international and local music icons as they unite to share one stage for Australia during its time of need."

Artists all around the world are teaming up to quell the devastation sweeping through the nation from the continuous fires that sparked in Australia since September last year.
