A fundraising concert to be held in Melbourne for Victorian bushfire victims is now sold out.

Several international acts will perform at the Sound Relief event when two benefit concerts are held simultaneously in Melbourne and Sydney on 14 March.

More than 78,000 tickets have been sold for the Melbourne event where performers will include Kings of Leon and Kylie Minogue.

Extra tickets have been added for the Sydney concert. Performers will include Coldplay and The Presets.

Tickets are $A75 each. More than 100,000 have been sold to date. Profits will go to the Red Cross Bushfire Appeal, which has already raised more than $A100 million. Both events will be broadcast live.
