Appropriately for a band forged in their hometown's sweat-drenched beer barns, the tour will begin in mid-April with an intimate local pub gig (details to be announced closer to the date). Midnight Oil will then perform 30 gigs around the world during the northern summer, playing iconic venues from Sao Paulo's Espaco das Americas and the Wiltern in L.A. to London's Hammersmith Apollo and The Olympia in Paris. They will share festival stages with artists like The Arcade Fire, Sting and The Pixies and finally return to New Zealand after 20 years. This long-awaited World Tour will climax with 18 special homecoming concerts through October and November, 2017. These will be Midnight Oil's only shows in the last 15 years apart from two stadium benefit concerts (and their related small warmup gigs) in Australia in 2005 and 2009. It will also be the group's most extensive world tour since their classic late 80's/early 90's albums like "Diesel & Dust", "Blue Sky Mining" and "Earth & Sun & Moon" sold over 10 million copies around the globe.
