Katy Perry has announced she’ll play a free concert, dubbed ‘Fight On’, in the regional Victorian concert in the town of Bright for firefighters, their families and affected communities on Wednesday, 11th March.
Perry is due to arrive in Australia in the coming days for pre-game and post-match performances at the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup final this weekend at the MCG.
“As a native Southern Californian, I know firsthand the devastation of wildfire across my home communities, and was particularly heartbroken by the Australian bushfires,” Perry commented.
“Australia has always given me so much love and support so FIGHT ON is one way to return that love, and help provide a little bit of joy to a country that’s given me so much joy.”
Victorian Minister for Tourism, Sport and Major Events Martin Pakula commented, “We’re thrilled that Katy is extending her trip to perform in regional Victoria. It will be incredibly exciting for communities which have had a really tough summer and recognise the outstanding efforts of our emergency services.”
Tickets to the show are being distributed to local emergency services who helped protect lives and property during the bushfire crisis, along with local residents from fire-affected communities in northeast Victoria. People can register their interest to attend here.
