Just thought I would share with you guys some recent news that his deeply affected Australians over the last couple of weeks. The state of Victoria has endured terrible bushfires which has seen the death toll rise to over 180 with 80 people missing. It is believed that most of the fires were deliberately lit by arsonists which has left many homeless. I have a friend whose mother's property was damaged but not to a huge extent, her close friends were not so lucky. What is making matters worse is that under fire brigade orders, none of the residents have been able to return to their homes due to areas being deemed a crime scene and the feelings of despair continue to grow.

The reason I bring this up is my friend will be attending the future music festival in Melbourne in March and she is also a big fan of Markus. I unfortunately can't go with her but I am addament that Markus will put a smile on her face and many other Victorian people's faces when he rocks the future music festival the only way he knows how :)

It's tragic that somebody would be so stupid to deliberately start a bushfire. I've seen the videos and pictures on the news, it's horrific! Here's hoping the destruction doesn't affect many more people and hopefully there won't any more deaths.
