Queen guitarist and environmental activist Brian May has confirmed the band are looking to headline the Fire Fight Australia concert.

“We have been approached to do a benefit concert, or be part of a benefit concert, a bit like Live Aid, if you like, to try and help out the victims of the fire,” May told PA news agency.

Promoters TEG Dainty and TEG Live announced on Monday they are scouting major international and local artists play at ANZ Stadium in Sydney on February 16.
