Midnight Oil is more than just a rock & roll band. From the northern beaches of Sydney to the streets of Manhattan, they have stopped traffic, inflamed passions, inspired fans, broken new ground and now, this September; Eccles Entertainment is bringing you the band in the flesh! Midnight Oil will play two monumental New Zealand shows at Auckland’s Vector Arena and Christchurch’s Horncastle Arena as part of The Great Circle 2017 world tour!

This will be Midnight Oil’s first headline New Zealand shows since playing the Supertop in 1990. They later returned to play Mountain Rock Festival in 1995 still making it well over 20 years since New Zealand audiences have had the true satisfaction of watching the band live! Seeing Midnight Oil in full flight is to experience the transcendent, kinetic power of live rock & roll. They leave you inspired to live life more passionately and to Get Involved. This September is New Zealand’s time to Get Involved.

On February 17, 2017 (Australian time) the band held a press conference on Sydney Harbour at which they announced that they would be touring the world from April through November of this year. The tour will be accompanied by the release of three new box sets; one will contain all their existing LP’s and EP’s, another will contain all their existing CD’s and videos plus there will be a new 4 CD/8DVD treasure trove of previously unreleased or rare material called “The Overflow Tank”.

As the tour name implies, “The Great Circle” will begin with an April pub gig in Sydney and then loop around Brazil, North America, Europe and New Zealand before climaxing with a lap of Australia. These circles of both the globe and their homeland will close with one more Sydney show on Remembrance Day.

Midnight Oil is still more than just a rock’n’roll band and in 2017 they will bring things back to where they all began. The circle remains unbroken.
