Two concerts featuring leading Australian and Vietnamese performers were organized in Ho Chi Minh City on Thursday and Hanoi on Friday to celebrate Australia Day 2011, which falls on January 26.

Australian Idol 2008 Thanh Bui shared the stage with famous Vietnamese popstars Ho Ngoc Ha in HCMC, My Linh in Hanoi, and young award-winning pianists Luu Hong Quang, 21 and Nguyen Van Anh, 24.

"The relationship between Australia and Vietnam is further enhanced by cultural programs. This concert is a good opportunity to highlight the strong, broad-based diplomatic relationship between our two countries," said Australian Consul General Graeme Swift.
