Queen + Adam Lambert played Sydney on 15th February 2020 at the ANZ Olympic Stadium, and the following day 16th February 2020 Queen + Adam Lambert headlined the Fire Fight Australia bushfire benefit concert which was held at the same venue.
On Saturday night 15th February I attended the Sydney concert. A severe storm swept though Sydney half an hour before showtime and the concert organisers wisely delayed the concert start by approx 3/4 hour. My sister Penny and I got drenched with rain standing outside waiting to get into the venue, but fortunately for everyone the rain cleared just before kick-off and what followed was a stunningly impressive performance from Brian May, Roger Taylor, Adam Lambert and the band. It was an awesome show!
And what was personally awesome for me was seeing Brian May play my guitar ‘George Burns’ on the Queen hit Fat Bottomed Girls. I made this guitar for Brian back in 1996-97 and used some strikingly beautiful New Guinea Rosewood for the neck and body, and used the rare Brazilian Rosewood for the fingerboard.

John Farnham closed the Fire Fight benefit concert with “You’re The Voice” which featured an allstar cast including Brian May who played my dear old guitar ‘George Burns’. Thanks Brian!
