With the horrific tragedies of the Australian Bushfires, the world is joining together to do what they can to raise both funds and awareness to the effects that climate change is having on the planet. The latest to get involved to do their bit for the cause is none other than Adam Lambert and Queen.
The set will take place at Fight Fire Australia which is in between the Australian legs of The Rhapsody Tour. We stan the kings of Queen!
Confirming the news on Instagram, guitarist Brian May said: “YES !!! It’s official. We’re donating our stage from our QAL show the previous night in Sydney for this great line-up of talent to raise money for Bushfire Relief. FIRE FIGHT AUSTRALIA will kick off from 1pm and run till late at ANZ Stadium, Sydney Olympic Park on Sunday 16 February 2020.”

Adam Lambert and Queen are just some of the many celebrities who are doing their bit for the climate-crisis related disaster. Lizzo recently took a hands-on approach as she went to help out at Foodbank Australia and thanking them for everything their doing.
Another big contribution to the relief comes from metal band Metallica who recently donated $750,000 Australian dollars to the NSW Rural Fire Service and to the Country Fire Authority in Victoria. Their hefty donation has secured almost as much money for the disaster than Amazon CEO and richest man alive Jeff Bezos as well as Chris Hemsworth who both pledged $1 million Australian dollars.
We are beyond thankful and proud to all our faves who have been donating as well as using their platforms to raise awareness and encourage their fans to do whatever they can to help.
