'They are under contract to us right now for The Voice 2020 but we allowed them to do the concert.

With $9.5 million raised for the bushfire recovery effort including a $200,000 donation from the Sony Foundation, Sky News Entertainment reporter Samantha Dawson says the Fire Fight Australia concert was "just spectacular to watch". As TV Black Box points out, Seven chose to tag its broadcast with a "Live" bug, even though viewers outside NSW and Victoria weren't seeing the action in real-time.

Organisers said 75,000 people attended the Fire Fight Australia concert on Sunday, which they said sold out within 24 hours of tickets going on sale. Bushfires destroyed more than 2,400 homes and burned more than 13 million acres in the country's most populous state. "Thank you again to everyone has made this very special day possible, and a special thanks to the entire TEG Team who have worked night and day, we could not be more proud and grateful".

Former American Idol contestant Lambert, who has toured with Queen since 2014, said it was a "real honour" to recreate the band's much-loved Live Aid set for the benefit concert.

Olivia Newton-John ended her two-year performing hiatus to sing alongside John Farnham at the event for a cause she described as "phenomenal".

The concert, taking place February 16th in Sydney's ANZ Stadium, benefits key organizations providing vital short, medium and long-term rescue, recover and rehabilitation assistance in Australia's fire-affected areas.
