MIDNIGHT OIL The Great Circle world tour

MidnightOil

The importance of Midnight Oil on Australian music and politics cannot be underestimated. Now the Australian legends have announced they will be reuniting in 2017 for a massive world tour that will take in capital cities and regional towns in Australia as well as hitting New Zealand, North America, South America, Europe and the UK. It will be their first tour in over two decades, and most importantly includes a stopover at Perth Arena on October 28.

The also have also announced plans of a three box set releases, with one that will feature over 14 hours of unreleased and rare material entitled The Overflow Tank.

While he claimed uncertainty around the world’s current political climate was coincidental to the reformation, singer Peter Garrett also told a press conference he believes instances such as the Trump presidency bring communities and activists together.

“The effect of Trump’s America, and this is a personal view, but the effect of Trump’s America will be to bring out community, whether it’s through music, whether it’s organisations, whether it’s unions, whether it’s academics, whether it’s schoolkids, whether it’s eventually farmers, whoever — it will bring those people out,” he said.

“Healthy democracies sometimes need to react against craziness and ugliness and selfishness and stupidity and grotesquery, and you’ve got that in ample abundance in President Trump. He’s not a figure that’s engendering a great deal of respect for his own people, and you can be sure that they’re going to respond, and there’s no way that we won’t say what we think about it either.”

A diverse array of special guests have put their hands up to be part of this massive tour, acts reflecting Midnight Oil’s long and vast musical landscape. These iconic voices include John Butler Trio, AB Original, Adalita, Apakatjah, Bad//Dreems, Birds Of Tokyo, David Bridie, Ash Grunwald, Irrunytju Band, Jack River, Jedediah, The Jezebels, The Living End, Abbe May, Something For Kate, Dan Sultan, Urthboy, Frank Yamma, and for their Perth Arena tour, Spiderbait.
