Fetch TV has partnered with FIRE FIGHT AUSTRALIA promoters TEG Live and TEG Dainty so 1,000 NSW Rural Fire Service volunteers can attend Sunday’s concert for National Bushfire Relief at ANZ Stadium for free.

Fetch TV has bought 1,000 tickets which have been distributed by the NSW Rural Fire Service to volunteers and their families in appreciation of their incredible effort and sacrifice during the recent bushfire crisis.

The $100,000 proceeds from the ticket purchase will go to FIRE FIGHT AUSTRALIA, with funds to be distributed to organisations providing vital support services to people and communities impacted by the bushfires.

TEG Dainty and TEG Live joined forces to produce a monumental benefit concert, taking place on Sunday 16 February 2020 at ANZ Stadium, Sydney and featuring an impressive line-up of local and international artists including 5 Seconds of Summer, Alice Cooper, Amy Shark, Baker Boy, Conrad Sewell, Daryl Braithwaite, Delta Goodrem, Grinspoon, Guy Sebastian, Hilltop Hoods, ICEHOUSE, Illy, Jessica, Mauboy, k.d. lang, John Farnham, Lee Kernaghan, Olivia Newton-John, Peking Duk, Pete Murray, Queen + Adam Lambert, Ronan Keating, Tina Arena and William Barton.

The concert will be broadcast live and free nationally from 1pm on Channel 7 and 7 Plus.

Fetch TV CEO Scott Lorson said: “Fetch TV is proud to support the FIRE FIGHT AUSTRALIA concert, and delighted to recognise the amazing efforts of our RFS heroes.  The funds raised will help support impacted communities on the long road ahead.  We hope that the RFS team and their families are able to relax and enjoy a great show.”

“We would also like to thank TEG Dainty, TEG Live, and the talented artists for putting on this amazing event. Aussie spirit at its best.”

Ticketek CEO Geoff Jones said: “Fire Fight Australia is going to be a great event, one that will go down in Australian music history. We are delighted that Fetch TV has made it possible for so many NSW RFS volunteers and their families to enjoy the show.   The Concert is about raising funds for the relief efforts and thanking those who helped through one of the most challenging times in our nation’s recent history. Fetch’s generous contribution does both.”

NSW RFS director corporate communications Anthony Clark said: “This bushfire season has been the most challenging in our history – in terms of impact on the community, loss of life and fire conditions. There’s been an incredible response from emergency services and firefighters from all over Australia and further abroad, but it’s great to recognise some of those volunteers who have worked so hard simply because of a desire to protect their own community. Many of our volunteers have been working on fires since August last year – so thanks to Fetch TV and TEG, this will give some of them a much needed break and some time with their families.”

The 1,000 tickets were distributed by the NSW RFS, and the attendees will be seated together and will be able to enjoy a great view of the concert.
