Midnight Oil Adds Five Canadian Dates To Triumphant Sold Out Reunion Tour

Canada just can’t get enough of Midnight Oil! The iconic Australian rock band and agitators announced today they’re headed back to the Great White North this summer for an encore of special performances on “The Great Circle 2017” World Tour.

Midnight Oil’s highly anticipated return to Canada follows nearly a 15 year hiatus and a career spanning love affair with Canadian music fans and Canadian culture. Their absence did not go unnoticed with over 250,000 tickets sold within days of “The Great Circle” World Tour being announced; that includes sold-out dates in Vancouver and Toronto. Now, they’re gearing up for even more shows with announced dates in Montreal, Toronto, Winnipeg, Edmonton, and Calgary.

This unusual decision to announce a return play in Toronto before the first show has even happened is driven by the band’s desire to frustrate scalpers. Rather than paying inflated prices via resellers to attend the imminent May and June shows, fans now have the option of buying regular tickets to attend these summer dates.

The band will be joined by rocker Matthew Good on all of the Canadian dates and acclaimed Australia rock band The Living End will join the bill on the Toronto show date. Good is one of Canada’s preeminent voices in music today.  In the 20 years since the release of his debut album he has been prolific in his output.  His studio albums have combined for nearly one million albums sold in Canada alone and he has been nominated for an incredible 21 JUNO Awards.  

All dates will go onsale to the general public on May 26 but members of Midnight Oil’s mailing list will get early access to tickets. Full dates and ticketing information is as follows:

“The Great Circle 2017” World Tour sold over 250,000 tickets within days when it was announced earlier this year. It kicked off with a sweaty club gig in Midnight Oil’s hometown of Sydney last month before hitting Brazil, where the band played 5 dates and made a guerrilla appearance aboard Greenpeace’s legendary flagship “The Rainbow Warrior”. Early show reviews have been extraordinary.
