According to the Sydney Morning Herald, the benefit concert for the victims of the forest fires in Australia raised 9.5 million Australian dollars (approximately 5.9 million euros) on Sunday. The concert was organized in Sydney by the Fire Fight Australia foundation.
75,000 visitors saw in the sold-out ANZ stadium how different artists performed during the ten-hour benefit concert. Queen, Olivia Newton-John and Adam Lambert, among others, played a selection of their hits.
Queen gave a reprise of the concert that the rock band gave in 1985 with the benefit of Live Aid. Then the proceeds were for the benefit of famine-stricken Ethopia.
Australia has been hit by forest fires for months. Dozens of people and millions of animals lost their lives.
