MIDNIGHT OIL WORLD TOUR SELLS OVER 200,000 TICKETS, 25 SHOWS ALREADY SOLD OUT, EXTRA SYDNEY & MELBOURNE SHOWS TO BE ANNOUNCED SOON DUE TO PHENOMENAL DEMAND

NEW SHOWS ADDED IN SYDNEY AND MELBOURNE – CLICK HERE FOR DATES AND TICKETING INFO

– – – – – – – – – –
Midnight Oil’s “The Great Circle 2017” world tour has struck a massive global chord with music fans. Over 200,000 tickets have been snapped up in just the first few days. All 14 North American shows have sold out plus ‘house full’ signs are already up for other venues including London’s Hammersmith Apollo and the iconic Olympia Theatre in Paris.
 
Back home in Australia today’s general public onsale saw all existing tickets sell out for eight shows in Kuranda, Brisbane, Hunter Valley, Sydney, Melbourne, Macedon Ranges, Canberra and Wollongong. Remaining Australasian dates are selling fast so interested fans are advised to get in quickly for their chance to see Midnight Oil at one of those other locations. For a complete listing of shows that still have tickets available please click here.
 
In breaking news, Midnight Oil and Frontier Touring are moving quickly to announce an extra Sydney and Melbourne show in November. Dates, venues, lineups and on-sale times for these two extra shows will be announced within 48 hours and will be posted immediately on www.midnightoil.com and the Midnight Oil Facebook page
 
Meanwhile fans everywhere are warned NOT to buy tickets from reseller sites. Such unofficial sites may currently be legal but they typically charge vastly inflated prices and sometimes even offer fake tickets. Midnight Oil is well aware of the problems caused by automated ticket buying around the world and the band is as frustrated as its fans are by this ticket scalping. It may be legal and impossible to stop in many places but it is clearly a big problem for both fans and artists on all ‘high demand’ shows these days.
 
In an attempt to frustrate these scalpers, discussions are currently underway to possibly shift some North American shows to larger rooms. Further international dates are also under consideration to allow more people around the world to be a part of this special tour. So anyone who buys tickets from a reseller over the coming weeks could well end up regretting that choice as more legitimate tickets may be released. Fans should therefore only buy tickets via the official outlets listed on www.midnightoil.com/tour-dates and keep an eye out for news of opportunities to access more tickets as they become available.

Sign up to the band’s mailing list at www.midnightoil.com/mailing-list to receive notifications about more ticket releases over coming months.

Ticket limit change for Australian tour dates

Due to extraordinary demand, the decision has been made to reduce the Australian ticket limit for Monday’s General Public on-sale to 6 tickets per person per show in a further effort to deter scalping.

We appreciate your understanding on this initiative which is designed to ensure as many fans as possible get a chance to see the band. Tickets to all Australian shows go on sale on Monday 27 February at staggered times – visit www.midnightoil.com/tour-dates for more details.
