Australian rock band and activists, Midnight Oil today, announced their first World Tour in over two decades. They also unveiled plans to release three archival box sets including a collection called "The Overflow Tank" which will contain more than 14 hours of previously unreleased and rare material.
This tour includes the original group line-up, and will circle around our planet for six months, with initiative about our planet overheating. The tour begins in mid-April, and will be a total of 30 gigs around the world, playing several renowned venues. The band will also share festival stages with The Arcade Fire, Sting, and The Pixies, with a return to New Zealand, well after twenty years. This concert will contain 18 special homecoming concerts through October and November 2017.
These shows are the only ones the band are performing in the last 15 years, and their most extensive world tour since their previous one that supported their late 80s and early 90s albums. The band has much more musical releases in store, with a CD box set, a vinyl collection, remastered LP's, and much more. Pre-orders and full details are available at the band's website. Midnight Oil are drummer and vocalist, Rob Hirst, guitarist Martin Rotsey, lead vocalist Peter Garrett, guitar and keyboards, Jim Moginie, with bassist and vocalist, Bones Hillman.
