In light of the recent fires that have devastated much of Australia, Miley Cyrus has been tapped as the headliner for World Tour Bushfire Relief, an upcoming relief concert to be held on Friday, March 13th at Lakeside Stadium in Melbourne.
Though she’s holding down the top spot, the 27-year-old will be joined on the bill by Lil Nas X, the Veronicas and DJ Seb Fontaine. Most importantly, this talent will bring in proceeds that will go straight to helping restore communities and wildlife affected by the devastating bush fire season that began this past June. With many areas still engulfed in flames, the cost of damage is expected to surpass $4.4 billion.
World Tour Bushfire Relief was organized by Jada Pinkett Smith and Will Smith’s Westbrook Inc., in partnership with Apollo World Touring, TEG Dainty and AgBioEn, a carbon-negative fuel company based in Melbourne. “As an Australian company, AgBioEn are devastated by the impacts of the recent bushfires, and we are proud to have been able to work with World Tour, TEG Dainty and the Australian Grand Prix Corporation to rapidly pull together this exciting event with Miley,” AgBioEn chairman Charles Hunting noted in a statement.
