The concert marks Miley Cyrus’ first time performing in Australia since her ‘Bangerz’ tour in 2013, while Lil Nas X has never played a show here before.

Proceeds from ticket sales will go to a selection of various bushfire relief charities, including the WWF’s Australian Wildlife and Nature Recovery Fund as well as the Foundation for Rural & Regional Renewal.

News of this event comes just a week after Fire Fight Australia took place in Sydney, which was headlined by Queen, Olivia Newton-John, John Farnham and more. The event, which saw 75,000 people sell out Sydney’s ANZ Stadium, has so far raised over $9.5 million towards bushfire relief.

Additionally, Fire Fight Australia also saw Queen, with the help of Adam Lambert, play their renowned Live Aid setlist for the first time since 1985.
