Queen and Adam Lambert, k.d. lang, Alice Cooper and Olivia Newton-John are expected to perform at a benefit concert in Sydney to raise funds for the bushfire relief effort.

The line-up for the Fire Fight Australia event on February 16 also includes artists Amy Shark, Baker Boy, Conrad Sewell, Daryl Braithwaite, Delta Goodrem, Grinspoon and Guy Sebastian, the Sydney Morning Herald reports.

Hilltop Hoods, Icehouse, Illy, Jessica Mauboy, Lee Kernaghan, Pete Murray, Peking Duk, Tina Arena and William Barton are also set to play at the concert at ANZ Stadium in Sydney.

Comedian Celeste Barber, whose online bushfire fundraiser garnered more than $50 million in donations, will host the concert, which is expected to run for nine hours.

The money raised will be split between the Red Cross, rural and regional fire services in affected states and the RSPCA’s bushfire appeal.

Tickets, which are priced between $70 to $100, go on sale at noon on Monday.
