Miley Cyrus has cancelled her bushfire relief concert in Melbourne due to fears over the spread of coronavirus.
The U.S. singer, 27, was scheduled to headline the World Tour Bushfire Relief fundraiser at Lakeside Stadium on March 13.
She tweeted on Tuesday afternoon (AEST) that she’d been advised not to fly to Australia amid the global health crisis.
I am so disappointed to not be there, but I have to do what is right to protect the health and safety of my band and crew. I will still be making a donation to help the victims of the Australian bush fire. I’m sorry to miss everyone in Australia, but I will be back soon.
