Miley Cyrus has announced that she will no longer be travelling to Melbourne this week for a bushfire relief charity concert, scheduled to be held this Friday, 13th March at Lakeside Stadium.

Taking to Twitter today, Cyrus said her cancellation was in response to “the current 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.”

Cyrus was billed alongside Lil Nas X, Aussie pop legends The Veronicas and DJ Seb Fontaine.
