Midnight Oil have added another special benefit concert to their current Australian tour.
#OneForTheOceans will see the band play their iconic album “10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1” in its entirety for the first time ever in this country, along with an hour of other Oils classics.
This one-off gig will happen in the intimate outdoor coastal setting of the Fremantle Arts Centre on Sunday October 29. Every cent of profit will go to various charities that work in the areas of reef protection and climate change including AMCS.org.au. It will happen just a few days after an October 24 National Press Club address in Canberra by frontman, Peter Garrett entitled “Trashing our crown jewel: The fate of the Great Barrier Reef in the coal age.”
“One For The Oceans” will be staged with the support of official media partners Fremantle Festival, Mix 94.5 and The West Australian. Special guests will be local 6 piece – and Triple J Unearthed favourites – POW Negro with doors at 6pm and the Oils onstage from 7.30pm sharp (all times subject to change).
