Midnight Oil World Tour

Legendary Australian rock band Midnight Oil will emabark on their first World Tour in over two decades. They have also unveiled plans to release three archival box sets including a collection called 'The Overflow Tank' of previously unreleased and rare material.

“The Great Circle 2017” World Tour will begin in mid-April with an intimate local gig (details to be announced) and will then tour their live show around the world during the northern summer. They will share festival stages with artists like Arcade Fire, Sting and The Pixies and finally return to New Zealand after 20 years.

The group will front their classic line-up forged in their hometown’s (Sydney) sweat-drenched beer barns.


These will be Midnight Oil’s only shows in the last 15 years apart from two stadium benefit concerts (and their related small warmup gigs); “Waveaid” at the Sydney Cricket Ground (2005) and “Sound Relief” at the Melbourne Cricket Ground (2009). It will also be the group’s most extensive world tour since their classic late 80’s/early 90’s albums like “Diesel & Dust”, “Blue Sky Mining” and “Earth & Sun & Moon” sold over 10 million copies around the globe.

Anyone with even a passing knowledge of Australian culture knows the basics of Midnight Oil’s story. They are the incendiary post-punk band from Sydney’s northern beaches who shunned TV shows like Countdown, instead gigging endlessly and forging a fierce bond with their audience through jagged Ozrock classics like “Back On The Borderline”, “Bus To Bondi” and “Don’t Wanna Be The One”.
