Legendary Australian rock band and agitators Midnight Oil announced their first World Tour in just under two decades.
Calling it “The Great Circle 2017”, this world tour will have the band literally going around the world performing for 6 months. They will be starting and ending their world tour in the hometown Sydney, Australia.
The tour will kick of mid- April this year with 30 gigs around the world. Playing in countries like Brazil, America, England and France. They will share festival stages with artists like Arcade Fire, Sting and The Pixies and finally return to New Zealand after 20 years.
Coming back to Australia in October, the band will continue their tour with 18 special homecoming performances till November. They will begin the return local tour in Alice Springs and Darwin then spend the next five weeks circling Australia states and finally return to Sydney. “The Great Circle” finally comes to a close right back where it all began; with a final show in Sydney on November 11 at that traditional home of Australian political activism, The Domain.
