Global rock legends Queen + Adam Lambertwill take a short break from their Australian The Rhapsody Tour to grace the stage in Sydney for a second time in the wake of their sold out ANZ Stadium performance the night before to perform a special set.

Rock 'n' Roll Hall of Famer Alice Cooper is also set to appear along with a cavalcade of Australian music industry heavyweights for the concert, which is expected to run more than nine hours, including artists Amy Shark, Baker Boy, Conrad Sewell, Daryl Braithwaite, Delta Goodrem, Grinspoon and Guy Sebastian.

John Farnham, Hilltop Hoods, Icehouse, Illy, Jessica Mauboy, Lee Kernaghan, Pete Murray, Peking Duk, Tina Arena and William Barton are also set to play.
