American pop star Miley Cyrus has announced today she will no longer be performing at a bushfire relief concert in Australia this week due to the growing fears surrounding coronavirus.

The singer took to social media to express her apologies, citing the recommendations of "local, state, federal and international government authorities" to prevent risking the health of her band and crew.

The cancellation comes merely three days before she was set to perform in a bushfire relief concert being held in Melbourne.

Cyrus went on to say she will instead be donating to help the victims.

She was set to be joined by Lil Nas X, The Veronicas and DJ Seb Fontaine in the one-night-only show.

Proceeds were intended to go to the WWF Australian Wildlife and Nature Recovery Fund as well as the Foundation for Rural and Regional Renewal.
