The evening will be hosted by comedian and Instagram sensation Celeste Barber, who her self has raised over $30 million dollars towards the relief effort. She will be joined by some of the biggest names in the industry, such as Queen, Michael Buble, KD Lang, Alice Cooper and Olivia Newton-John. The event takes place at Sydney’s ANZ Stadium, where all 70,000 tickets sold out in 24 hours.
