MIDNIGHT OIL ANNOUNCE GUESTS FOR NATIONAL ‘RESIST: THE FINAL TOUR’
FEBRUARY – APRIL 2022
In the wake of last week’s acclaimed Tasmanian gigs, Midnight Oil today 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 and 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 1980’s 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 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. Full information for the Australian leg is detailed below.
Meanwhile, critical reaction to the band’s appearances last week at the Mona Foma Festival in Launceston and Hobart has been extraordinary:
“If the first concert of Midnight Oil’s last tour was indicative of the 18 dates to follow, the Sydney-born band is fighting against the laws of rock ’n’ roll nature by going out on top… If you can, go.” The Australian
“Farewell tours often have one eye on the past and the other on the cash register – but if Midnight Oil’s show in Launceston on Sunday was any indication, they’re not coasting to the finish line.” The Guardian
“Midnight Oil’s farewell lap, to mark a new album, and preserve the legacy of their blistering live shows, was never going to be reflective and dewy-eyed.” Herald Sun
