Exuberant Midnight Oil fans around the globe have snapped up over 100,000 tickets during recent days as the band’s first world tour in over two decades went on sale.

Tickets to the entire 14 shows on Midnight Oil’s North American tour are already completely sold out while their show in London sold out within minutes. Closer to home major venues like Victoria’s picturesque Hanging Rock and Sydney’s Domain exhausted their large presale allocations in less than half an hour. The final remaining tickets for all Australian dates are available today at staggered intervals over the coming hours check timings here frontiertouring.com/midnightoil and www.midnightoil.com/tour-dates

The Australian tour dates deliver an eclectic spread of Special Guests with terrific up and comers getting amongst it as well as more established acts opening the concerts including John Butler Trio, AB Original, Adalita, Apakatjah, Bad/Dreems, Birds Of Tokyo, David Bridie, Ash Grunwald, Irrunytju Band, Jack River, Jedediah, The Jezabels, The Living End, Abbe May, Something For Kate, Spiderbait, Dan Sultan, Urthboy, and Frank Yamma.

All dates, venues, line-ups and ticket information are listed below. Exact on sale times are deliberately being staggered from show to show to reduce website congestion.  Extensive anti-scalping measures are being taken around this tour so fans are formally advised to only buy tickets from the official ticket agencies listed on the band’s website to avoid possible fraud and needless overpayment via so called “reselling” sites.

If you missed it, tune into a synopsis of the band’s announcement of “THE GREAT CIRCLE TOUR” made in the picturesque setting of Sydney Harbour on board the Indigenous “Mari Nawi” boat here

Pre-orders are also available for the band’s remastered CD box set called “The Full Tank” featuring all of their existing albums and EP’s plus a mammoth new 4 CD/8 DVD trove called “The Overflow Tank” which will include over 14 hours of previously unreleased and rare material. Both of these box sets will be housed in replica miniature water tanks like the one featured onstage at so many ‘Oils’ gigs. The band also unveiled their first ever complete Vinyl collection which will feature 11 remastered LP’s and two 12” EP’s all cut at Abbey Rd Studios in London. For full boxset track listings and content information visit www.midnightoil.com/store The Boxset Collection is available for pre-order now, out May 5 through Sony Music.

MIDNIGHT OIL, their music makes you feel. Their lyrics make you think. And the combined impact live onstage is nothing less than a call to action.
