“We have to watch each other, because people at the top don’t do that”: Celeste Barber gets a SAVAGE swipe to the Australian government while opening the Fire Fight Australia concert
Celeste Barber did a furious blow at the Australian government during the opening of the Fire Fight Australia 2020 fundraising concert at ANZ Stadium in Sydney on Sunday.
On stage in the early afternoon, Celeste welcomed the audience to the event with a great line-up of local and intentional artists, including Olivia Newton-John, Queen with Adam Lambert and Alice Cooper.
“Man, it has been so hectic, right? Oh my goodness, “Celeste said, referring to the horror forest fires that have plagued Australia since last October.

“And as Aussies, we commit ourselves because we have to take care of each other because people don’t seem to be at the top,” she said.
“So we have to watch out for each other,” she continued as the audience burst into cheers.
The comedian entered the stage in a short, close-fitting top and skirt with a black denim jacket adorned with the slogan: “Always was, always will be.”
