The Singer has posted the following statement in social media:
Due to the recommendations of local, state, federal and international government authorities, including the Center for Disease Control, to reduce potential health risks in response to the current global health crisis, we are no longer travelling to Australia for the show. 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.
Miley Cyrus will headline the World Tour Bushfire Relief charity concert – a one night only event to benefit Australian fire relief efforts on Friday 13th March at Lakeside Stadium in Melbourne. Country-rap star Lil Nas X, pop duo The Veronicas and DJ Seb Fontaine will join Miley Cyrus as special guests.
Thanks to the generous support of World Tour’s global sponsor AgBioEn, proceeds from concert ticket sales will go to two Australian based nonprofits who are working to restore forests, and wildlife, as well as rebuilding communities affected by the devastating fires. The concert, which will take place alongside the Formula 1 ® Rolex Australian Grand Prix, is expected to raise millions.
Tickets go on sale Tuesday 25th February at 2pm AEDT at ticketek.com.au.
