Sydney Opera House illuminated its famous sails in a show of solidarity for everyone touched by the destructive bushfires in Australia.
“We want to send a message of hope and strength, and importantly to thank the emergency services and volunteers for their incredible efforts and courage.”

In an effort to assist — and collect funds — the Opera House is also hosting a tremendous comedy gig on its steps and forecourt on Monday, March 16th, 2020.
It will be called Comedy Steps Up for Bushfire Relief, the outdoor gala performance will see Arj Barker, Tim Minchin, Becky Lucas, and The Simpsons star Harry Shearer take to the stage, as well as Carl Barron, Urzila Carlson, Joel Creasey, Kitty Flanagan, and Julia Morris — with more performances to be announced.
All income from ticket sales will be donated to the Australian Red Cross Disaster Relief and Recovery Fund, the NSW Rural Fire Service, Wildlife Victoria, and WIRES.
