Midnight Oil Tour Supports Announced
In the wake of last week’s acclaimed Tasmanian gigs, Midnight Oil unveiled the full line up for each show of their imminent mainland tour. The dates will feature a broad palate of Australian sounds, from buzzing pub punks Amyl & The Sniffers through the young surf rock of Darwin’s King Stingray to the mighty Hoodoo Gurus just as they launch their new album. Acclaimed singer-songwriters Jack River, William Crighton, Emily Wurramara, Stephen Pigram and Busby Marou will also appear as will Best Blues & Roots ARIA winners, All Our Exes Live In Texas. Plus the tour will feature a handful of rare reunion appearances by fellow 1980s trailblazers Goanna.
These shows kick off with sold-out gigs in Newcastle and Wollongong, shortly after the band’s new album Resist is released on 18 February. When announcing the dates last November the Oils revealed that this would be their last concert tour and that it would hopefully be followed by some other shows overseas – this remains their intention providing international travel is possible.
