Sound Relief was a multi-venue rock music concert held on 14 March 2009, which was announced by the Premier of Victoria, John Brumby on 24 February 2009. The event was organised by Michael Gudinski, Michael Chugg, Amanda Pelman, Joe Segreto & Tom Lang of IMC/Homebake Festival and Mark Pope to raise funds for those affected by the February 2009 Victorian bushfires. The event was held simultaneously at the Melbourne Cricket Ground and the Sydney Cricket Ground. All the proceeds from the Melbourne Concert and half of the proceeds of the Sydney Concert went to the Red Cross Victorian Bushfire Appeal. The other half of the Sydney proceeds went to the Queensland Premier's Disaster Relief Appeal to help flood victims. A special presentation was held mid-way through the concerts, with a satellite link between the two venues. At this time, Kylie Minogue, at the Melbourne event, performed I Still Call Australia Home and Australian actress Toni Collette introducing Princes William and Harry who sent their support via satellite. It is interesting to note that the Princes' speech at Sound Relief was their first ever to the nation and as such, made Australian Consitutional history.
