Katy Perry (35) is also greatly affected by the enormous damage caused by the forest fires in Australia. The singer is therefore giving a free concert next Wednesday in the city of Bright for victims of the fires and emergency staff, she announced on social media on Monday.

“I know from my own experience how forest fires can destroy municipalities and I found the forest fires in Australia heartbreaking to see”

Katy herself comes from southern California, where forest fires regularly occur. “I know from my own experience how forest fires can destroy municipalities and I found the forest fires in Australia heartbreaking to see,” the singer says in a statement.

With the Fight On concert, she wants to support Australians. “Australia has always given me so much love and support and Fight On is a way to give that love back and give a little pleasure to a country that has brought me so much pleasure.”

The free tickets for Katy’s show are distributed to the various emergency services and residents of affected areas. In addition, people can be eligible for tickets by registering online.

The singer is the umpteenth in the list of stars who, in a certain way, is committed to the victims of the forest fires. Kylie Minogue, Elton John and Chris Hemsworth, among others, donated money and there were also several benefit concerts.
