The iconic and legendary Australian rock band and agitators, Midnight Oil, are returning to the UK in the summer.
In an online message to fans the five original members of Midnight Oil explained:
"We really enjoyed making music together again on The Great Circle tour and the reaction from everyone was so positive that we’ve decided to do a bit more of it in 2019. There won’t be anywhere near as many shows this time around but we’re keen to keep performing while there are still new places to play and new things to say. It’s as simple as that really.”
Despite a 15 year break while frontman, Peter Garrett, became a minister in the Australian Government, last year’s world tour saw the Oils in the same incendiary form which made them one of the world's most captivating live experiences during the 1980’s and 1990’s. Intensely political songs like “Beds Are Burning”, “Blue Sky Mining” and “Power & The Passion” took on even greater urgency in the age of Trump and Brexit leaving critics gushing across five continents.
