The Sound Relief concert to be held in Melbourne for Victorian bushfire victims has sold out, becoming the largest paid concert event ever held in Australia.
Several international acts will perform and some legendary Australian bands have re-formed for two benefit concerts to be held simultaneously at the Melbourne and Sydney cricket grounds on Saturday. More than 78,000 tickets have been sold for the Melbourne event, which will feature the likes of Kings of Leon and Kylie Minogue.
Extra tickets have been added for the Sydney concert, which will be headlined by Coldplay and The Presets. More than 100,000 tickets, at $75 each, have been sold across both cities. The profits will add to the more than $100 million raised so far for the Red Cross Bushfire Appeal. Half of the profits from the Sydney event will go towards helping Queensland flood victims.
