News broke this morning that Australian rock band, Midnight Oil are reforming for a series of shows “during 2017”. Does this mean that one of the most talked about bands in our nation’s history will be headed to Newcastle? We hope so.
In a post to their Facebook page this morning the band said,
“We wanted you to be the first to know that the five of us are planning to do some gigs in Australia and overseas during 2017. It will probably be at least the end of this year before we know exactly where or when – but if you want to be first to hear about any dates, head over to bit.ly/MidnightOilMailingList and sign up to the mailing list. You can grab your free download of ‘Forgotten Years’ live from Canberra while you’re there and catch up on some other big news too. Hope to see you soon … from Bones, Jim, Martin, Peter and Rob”
Last year, the history of Midnight Oil was on show at Newcastle Museum as part of “The Making of Midnight Oil” exhibition developed by Manly Art Gallery. The timeline of the band’s career was a big hit with locals who flocked to the museum to check it out.
Tour dates for Midnight Oil’s reformation tour are still to be confirmed. We’ll let you know as soon as they’re announced.
