Midnight Oil Australia 2017 tour dates

Midnight Oil World Tour

"Your musical heart never stops beating even if you're doing other things."

Peter Garrett said he had "never felt better, fresher, more energetic".

Midnight Oil will be performing their hits including Beds are Burning, Blue Sky Mine and Power and the Passion. An opportunity to get together with brothers in music, it's incredible.

The "Great Circle 2017" tour, dropped aboard a boat on Sydney Harbour on Friday morning, will tour the world for six months, starting and finishing up in Sydney. They will share festival stages with artists like Arcade Fire, Sting and The Pixies and finally return to New Zealand after 20 years.

The band will perform at 18 venues around Australia in October and November, including several regional centres.

Australian rock band Midnight Oil have reunited for a world tour.

Both the Full Tank and the Overflow Tank will be housed in a miniature water tank, a replica of the tank that became part of Hirst's drum kit after the band picked it up in the Western Desert while on tour in the 1980s.

Ticket pre-sales for the Australian leg of the tour open on Thursday, February 23, and general sales start on Monday, February 27, from 12 noon AEDT.

Midnight Oil's Australian dates include every capital city, as well as shows in Alice Springs, Cairns, Townsville, Rockhampton, the Sunshine Coast, Coffs Harbour, the Hunter Valley, Wodonga, Hanging Rock and Wollongong.
