US pop musician Katy Perry is set to extend her upcoming Australian visit, announcing a free bushfire benefit concert for next week.

Already set to perform at the Women’s T20 World Cup cricket final at the Melbourne Cricket Ground on International Women’s Day next week, Perry has become the latest artist to announce a benefit concert for those affected by the devastating Australian bushfires.

“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 wrote in a post on Instagram.

“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.


The one-off performance is set to take place at the Pioneer Park Recreation Reserve in Bright, VIC on Wednesday, March 11. Tickets to the show are free, and are being “distributed to emergency services who helped save lives and property as well as local residents from fire-affected communities”.

Fans can also register their interest for access to the show via Ticketek, and will be notified if they were successful by Friday, March 6.

This charitable event will also take place just two days before a similar concert at Melbourne’s Lakeside Stadium which features Miley Cyrus, country-rap chart-topper Lil Nas X, The Veronicas, and DJ Seb Fontaine performing.
