Iconic Australian rock band and agitators, Midnight Oil, will bring “The Great Circle 2017” World Tour back to the U.S. for a final four special shows this summer.

Sat 19 Aug – The Greek, Los Angeles CA
Mon 21 Aug – Terminal 5, New York NY
Sun 27 Aug – House of Blues, Cleveland OH
Tue 29 Aug – First Avenue, Minneapolis MN

After selling out their forthcoming New York and Los Angeles dates within minutes, the band has just announced special encore gigs in August at Terminal 5 and The Greek Amphitheatre respectively.

This unusual decision to announce return plays in those two cities before the first gigs have even happened is driven by the band’s desire to frustrate scalpers. Rather than paying inflated prices via resellers to attend the imminent May shows, fans now have the option of buying normal tickets to attend these summer dates.

The band will also play Cleveland (House of Blue) and Minneapolis (First Avenue) on this return visit for the first time in 15 years.

Ticket pre-sale starts 10:00am (local time) Tue 9 May. Pre-sale password will be sent to Midnight Oil’s mailing list at 9:30am EDT Tue 9 May, sign up via
