Elton John, Pink And Bruce Springsteen Might Be Part Of Next Bushfire Relief Concert
There could be a few more huge international acts heading to Australia to take the stage for the bushfire relief effort.
Music promoter Michael Gudinski has told the ABC that he's got big plans in the works for a multi-city concert that would benefit communities affected by bushfires and hinted at a few of the artists he's hoping to nab.
Gudinski said it was "too early" to release the names but then proceeded to list some legendary headline acts that just might be interested in heading to Australia (and New Zealand) for a good cause.
"I've got no one signed up, but the two people who would be at the top of my list would be Sir Elton [John], who's spent so much time here and is just such a generous person -- he's already donated a million bucks," Gudinski told ABC News.
Also named as a possibility was Ed Sheeran.
Sheeran made it pretty clear he was taking a break from live shows after his mammoth world tour wrapped up this year -- but surely he could be tempted out of semi-retirement for a few tunes?
Gudinski went on to list two pop icons who have already donated their own cash to the bushfire relief effort -- Kylie Minogue and P!nk -- but saved the, arguably, biggest name til last.
"Bruce Springsteen's management sent me a note, I know how many people love and respect that guy and how serious his music is," he said.
Gudinski co-organised the Sound Relief concerts over a decade ago after the devastating 2008-2009 Victorian bushfire season that killed 173 people.
He's hoping to stage similar events to raise money for those affected by the recent fires across Australia.
And while we might have to wait a bit longer to potentially see Elton, Kylie, P!nk and Bruce share the stage -- there are plenty of bushfire relief gigs happening around the country already.
Celeste Barber -- who has raised more than $50 million dollars for national bushfire relief -- is hosting Fight Fire Australia event in Sydney on Sunday, February 16.
The absolutely huge lineup includes Queen, Alice Cooper, John Farnham, Olivia Newton-John, and k.d lang and all proceeds from the benefit gig will go straight towards bushfire relief.
