Pop stars Miley Cyrus and Madonna have cancelled their gigs due to coronavirus concerns.

Cyrus was scheduled to headline a bushfire relief concert in Australia, while Madonna was set to perform in Paris.

"I am so disappointed to not be there, but I have to do what is right to protect the health and safety of my band and crew," Cyrus said in a message on Twitter.

"I will still be making a donation to help the victims of the Australian bush fire."

Organisers of World Tour said all fans will receive a full refund.

"It is with profound regret that we are announcing the cancellation of the last two Madame X shows," the venue said, adding that decision was taken after the French government banned gatherings of more than 1,000 people.
