Queen And Adam Lambert Confirmed As Headliners For Bushfire Crisis Benefit Gig

The legendary rock band Queen, featuring Adam Lambert, will headline a massive bushfire benefit gig in Sydney.

The 'We Will Rock You' icons were heavily rumoured to be fronting the huge Live Aid-style concert as they are performing in Sydney the day before - and now they've been confirmed.

The nine-hour concert, hosted by comedian Celeste Barber, will also feature the likes of Alice Cooper, k.d lang, Amy Shark, Delta Goodrem, Olivia Newton-John, John Farnham, Lee Kernaghan and Tina Arena.

An official announcement from organisers TEG Dainty and TEG Live stated: "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."

It looks like there will be something for everyone, with the tour promoters also booking Peking Duk, Baker Boy, Jessica Mauboy, the Hilltop Hoods, Icehouse and Illy.

There will also be more people announced later on, so there could be a surprise act to come later.

The chief executive of TEG Dainty, Geoff Jones, said the company has been flooded with offers and will be delicately going through them all to see what works best.

Jones said: "We are honoured to have such iconic acts volunteering for such an important cause.

"This has been a national tragedy that has touched people around the world and we want to do our bit to contribute."

If you're not able to get to that concert then there might be another one that you would enjoy.

World famous group The Wiggles has announced a bushfire relief concert to raise funds for organisations that are helping with the bushfire.

People who grew up in the 90s will remember the likes of Anthony Field, Murray Cook, Greg Page and Jeff Fatt as the OG Red, Blue, Yellow and Purple Wiggles.

They've announced they're putting on an over-18s reunion concert, with all the proceeds going towards to the Australian Red Cross and the NSW Wildlife Information Rescue and Education Service (WIRES).

They'll be playing at the Castle Hill RSL on 18 January,
