Miley Cyrus Has Cancelled Her Upcoming Melbourne Charity Concert Due to Coronavirus
The US pop star was due to perform at the World Tour Bushfire Relief concert this week, which has been cancelled as a result.
Miley Cyrus has cancelled her trip to Australia, and her performance at this week's World Tour Bushfire Relief, due to health concerns surrounding COVID-19.
The US pop star took to Twitter to make the announcement, saying the decision was made after recommendations from "local, state, federal and international authorities, including the Center for Disease Control". Cyrus also said she'll still be making a donation to help the victims of the bushfires, and that she'll be "back soon".
As a result, the charity concert has itself been cancelled. All ticket holders will be contacted by Ticketek shortly and receive a full refund.
World Tour Bushfire Relief was due to take over Lakeside Stadium on Friday, March 13, with country music star Lil Nas X (of 'Old Town Road' fame), Aussie pop duo The Veronicas and DJ Seb Fontaine also on the lineup. Money raised would've gone to the WWF Australian Wildlife and Nature Recovery Fund, and the Foundation for Rural and Regional Renewal.
Would Tour Bushfire Relief will no longer take place on Friday, March 13.
