Midnight Oil'Resist' Tour
Wednesday 2 March 2022
WIN Entertainment Centre
Nearly five years ago the legendary Midnight Oil returned with a sweat drenched pub gig at Selinas where frontman Peter Garrett exhorted “rage, rage, against the dying of the light”. And that’s exactly what they’ve done ever since. This latest chapter of their iconic career will open with the release of a new album and a series of big gigs. Both are aptly titled 'Resist'.
The Oils were last at WIN Entertainment Centre in 2017 for their Great Circle Tour and are excited to be bringing their emotion-filled music to Wollongong.
Resist will be a fitting, forward looking, statement for a band whose clarion call has always been “its better to die on your feet than live on your knees”. The tour will see them performing classic Midnight Oil songs from across their repertoire while also showcasing some urgent new works. As the title makes abundantly clear, Resist engages with the issues of today, like the lead single “Rising Seas” which tackles the climate crisis in typically uncompromising fashion.
Peter Garrett say, “We hope everyone who hears this album and gets to one of the shows will come away charged up about the planet’s future saying ‘why stop now?’
Midnight Oil calls for governments to urgently take serious action that reduce carbon pollution. This tour will embrace best practices for emission reductions and offsetting. A portion of proceeds will also be set aside to support organisations seeking to elevate the existential threat posed by the climate crisis.
