Special Guest Urthboy
The time has come … for Midnight Oil. From the northern beaches of Sydney to the streets of Manhattan, they have stopped traffic, inflamed passions, inspired fans, and broken new ground.
Experiencing Midnight Oil in full flight is to experience the transcendent power of live rock & roll. Their music makes you feel, their lyrics make you think, and the combined impact live onstage makes you want to Get Involved.
“The Great Circle 2017” World Tour will see the group’s classic lineup literally circle our overheating planet for 6 months, starting and ending with gigs in Sydney. It will be Midnight Oil’s first tour in 15 years and their biggest tour since classic 80’s and early 90’s albums like “10-1”, “Diesel & Dust” and “Blue Sky Mining” sold over 10 million copies around the world.
Anyone with a passing knowledge of Australian culture knows the basics of Midnight Oil’s story. They are the incendiary post-punks who shunned pop TV shows like “Countdown”, forging a fierce live audience through jagged Oz-rock classics like “Back On The Borderline”, “Bus To Bondi” and “Don’t Wanna Be The One”. They are the musical innovators who turned high tech polemic into hits like “Power & The Passion”, “U.S. Forces” and “When The Generals Talk”. They are the activists whose social justice campaigning includes “The Dead Heart”, “Redneck Wonderland”, “Beds Are Burning” and hijacking the 2000 Olympic Games with their “Sorry” suits. They are the committed humanists and environmentalists who brought us anthems like “Blue Sky Mine”, “Forgotten Years” and “Say Your Prayers” plus a string of protests from the Jabiluka uranium mine near Kakadu to mid-town Manhattan where they unforgettably stopped traffic outside the Exxon building after the Alaskan oil spill.
“The Great Circle 2017” will be promoted in Australia by Frontier Touring with the support of the band’s record company, Sony Music. The Triple M Network and Foxtel’s MAX will proudly present all dates nationally.
The tour will coincide with the release of a remastered CD box set called “The Full Tank” featuring all of Midnight Oil's existing albums and EP’s plus a mammoth new 4 CD/8 DVD trove called “The Overflow Tank” which will include over 14 hours of previously unreleased and rare material. The band has also unveiled their first ever complete Vinyl collection all cut at Abbey Rd Studios.
Midnight Oil is more than just a rock’n’roll band. In 2017 they will finally bring things back to where they all began with this one special tour. The circle remains unbroken.
Anti Scalping Initiative
Midnight Oil is of the view that the practice of individuals purchasing tickets for the express purpose of reselling them at an inflated price is detrimental to fans and the music industry generally.
We implore fans not to purchase tickets from websites that serve these scalpers including (but not limited to) eBay, Viagogo, Ticketmaster Resale, Gumtree, Ticketblaster, Queen Of Tickets and The Ticket Merchant.
We are taking steps to try to the best of our ability limit scalping without inconveniencing our fans. These steps include;
1. Reserving the right in our terms of purchase to cancel any tickets we detect advertised for sale above the purchase value.
2. Applying ticket limits per customer and per household and monitoring those limits.
3. Withholding the distribution of tickets via all channels to be sent two months prior to the first show of the tour. Please ensure your mailing address is up to date with the ticketing company you purchased your tickets from.
4. Issuing only securely printed, hard tickets for this tour.
5. Partnering with the website Twickets as an authorised place that fans who are caught with more tickets than they need, can sell them at face value and fans who are searching for tickets can buy them from authenticated fans.
Whilst we do not want to be unfair or cause distress to our fans we are also implementing a policy whereby fans who arrive at venues with tickets purchased via unauthorized ticketing sites and which are found to be fraudulent, cancelled, sold in duplicate or invalid for any other reason will not be admitted to our shows.
Due to extraordinary demand in the Midnight Oil pre-sale the decision has been made to reduce the General Public on-sale limit from 10 to 6 in an effort to deter scalping. We appreciate your understanding on this late decision. Tickets to all shows go on sale on Monday 27 February 12pm.
