Seven announces three live sites for Fire Fight Australia

Seven has announced three live sites to watch the Fire Fight Australia concern in bush-fire affected towns.

The announcement:


Channel Seven, in partnership with TEG Dainty and TEG Live, is proud to present FIRE FIGHT AUSTRALIA LIVE (AEDT) from ANZ Stadium this Sunday, February 16 from 1.00pm, as the music industry’s best unite to raise money for national bushfire relief.

Seven’s telecast of the 10-hour sold out concert will begin at 1.00pm with The Morning Show’s Larry Emdur and Kylie Gillies kicking off coverage. Then join Sunrise hosts David Koch and Samantha Armytage from 5.00pm, as they take viewers well into the night. Seven’s Sonia Kruger and Sunrise’s Sam Mac will have the ANZ Stadium crowd and backstage covered.

Seven today announced three LIVE SITES across Australia in areas severely impacted by the recent bushfires that will benefit most from donations, with those local communities encouraged to gather to watch on the big screen;

7NEWS’ Mel McLaughlin will host the LIVE SITE at Club Narooma on the far south coast of NSW.

Lobethal residents in the Adelaide Hills can attend the LIVE SITE at Fabrik, Mill Square.

And the third will be at the Sarsfield Recreation Reserve in eastern Victoria.

Throughout the broadcast, viewers will be encouraged to donate via www.firefightaustralia.com to support those whose lives have been impacted by the worst bushfire season in living memory. Donations will go to the Foundation for Rural & Regional Renewal’s Fire Fight Fund*.

Seven Group Holdings (SGH) and its major shareholder Australian Capital Equity (ACE) have already pledged $10 million to the bushfire relief efforts and will co-fund the live telecast with Foxtel.

FIRE FIGHT AUSTRALIA will feature global rock legends Queen + Adam Lambert, global superstar Michael Bublé (exclusive live cross performance), Grammy award winning Canadian singer songwriter k.d. lang, and Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Famer Alice Cooper along with a cavalcade of Australian music industry heavy weights (in alphabetical order); 5 Seconds of Summer, Amy Shark, Baker Boy, Conrad Sewell, Daryl Braithwaite, Delta Goodrem, Grinspoon, Guy Sebastian, Hilltop Hoods, ICEHOUSE, Illy, Jessica Mauboy, John Farnham, Lee Kernaghan, Olivia Newton-John, Peking Duk, Pete Murray, Tina Arena and William Barton.
