Miley announces Aussie bushfire concert

Miley Cyrus has announced she's coming to Australia to headline a bushfire fundraiser concert next month.

The Slide Away singer will be joined by Lil Nas X (of Old Town Road fame), The Veronicas and DJ Seb Fontaine for the World Tour Bushfire Relief charity concert at the Lakeside Stadium in Melbourne on March 13.

 

In a tweet, Cyrus explained that the money raised from ticket sales "will go to Australian charities working to restore forests, wildlife, and communities affected by the devastating fires".

Proceeds from the concert will specifically benefit The WWF Australian Wildlife and Nature Recovery Fund, and The Foundation for Rural and Regional Renewal.

Tickets will go on sale tomorrow, Tuesday 25 February, at 2pm AEDT via Ticketek.

The biggest Miley fans (with a bit more spare change) will be able to upgrade their experience with a "unique VIP package", ranging between $550 and $740 per ticket.

Among the extra features for VIP ticketholders are an exclusive standing area near the edge of the stage, 5 complimentary drinks, dedicated "executive bathrooms", access to an event photographer and priority entry.

The announcement comes a week after the hugely successful Fire Fight Australia bushfire relief fundraiser was held in Sydney, where 75,000 gathered for a star-studded line-up including Queen and Adam Lambert, 5 Seconds of Summer, k.d. lang and a number of other artists.
