Coronavirus sees Miley Cyrus cancel Australian benefit concert amid concerns

Due to headline an Australian bushfire benefit concert in Melbourne, Miley Cyrus has confirmed that the show will not go ahead amid Coronavirus fears.

Miley has announced that Australian authorities had advised her not to travel Down Under for the show to "reduce potential health risks in response to the current global health crisis".

The 27-year-old was set to headline the World Tour Bushfire Relief fundraiser that was taking place at the Lakeside Stadium this Friday.

Famed for her hits such as Wrecking Ball and Party In The USA, Miley took to her Twitter to announce the news that no doubt left her fans upset.
