A Human Nature concert in Sydney has sparked concern after hundreds of audience members were seen singing without masks as health authorities fight to contain multiple coronavirus clusters.

The gig last night was held at the Sydney Coliseum at West HQ, an entertainment venue inside the Rooty Hill RSL.

Footage and photos show the large crowd singing along to the band's hits. Very few of them were wearing masks.

Masks became mandatory in Greater Sydney from today. People were given a one-day grace period and from Monday there will be a $200 fine for anyone failing to comply.

NSW opposition leader Jodie McKay shared a photo of the concert on Twitter today.

"No social distancing, very few masks and a predominantly older audience," Ms McKay wrote.

Under current NSW Health restrictions venues in Greater Sydney such as concert halls are allowed to operate at 75 per cent capacity if events are seated.

The four-square-metre rule applies to publicly accessible space.

Nine.com.au is not suggesting the venue or event holders breached any public health orders.

Sydney Coliseum and West HQ, in Rooty Hill RSL, have been contacted for comment.

NSW recorded 11 new COVID-19 cases on Sunday, eight of which are locally acquired and three are from overseas.
