Oils Add Melbourne Show & Extra Tickets


With less than two months until the homecoming leg of The Great Circle 2017 World Tour, the first Midnight Oil tickets have started shipping to Australian fans. To coincide with this moment the band have announced a few big surprises.

Firstly, Midnight Oil will play a third and final concert at Sidney Myer Music Bowl in Melbourne on Wednesday November 15. Special guests will be The Smith Street Band and The Teskey Brothers. Pre-sale tickets available from noon AEST Tue 8 Aug via the band’s mailing list – sign up via www.midnightoil.com/mailing-list. Pre-sale password / info will be sent out at 10:00am AEST Tuesday August 8. General public on-sale at noon AEST Friday August 11.

Secondly, as part of ongoing anti-scalping initiatives, Midnight Oil and Frontier Touring have just announced a strictly limited final release of extra tickets for nearly all of the Australian shows that were previously sold out. Some of these tickets will be available immediately via the usual online ticketing outlets. Visit www.midnightoil.com/tour-dates for details.

The Oils have also allocated a small quantity of tickets for sale via select independent music stores to encourage fans to visit these retailers who do so much for Australian music. Record store tickets will go on sale from store opening today until sold out – you’ve just got to stand in line! Please see the show-by-show info at www.midnightoil.com/record-store-tickets for all the specific store details.

Melbourne fans should note that Greville Records in Prahran has 100 tickets for sale.

Last but not least, Midnight Oil will play an intimate performance in Far North Queensland during early October to help draw extra attention to the plight of the Great Barrier Reef. Fans should listen to their local Triple M station over coming weeks to learn more about this unique event and get their chance to win free tickets.
