Rod Laver Arena and Rutherglen shows postponed

Midnight Oil is disappointed to announce that Rob Hirst has returned a positive test for Covid-19. As a result the band needs to postpone its next two gigs to allow Rob to quarantine as required by Victorian law. Therefore the Oils’ show at RLA (With Amyl & The Sniffers) on Wednesday Mar 9 will now happen on Sun Mar 27. Their gig at Rutherglen (with Hoodoo Gurus and All Our Exes Live In Texas) planned for Saturday Mar 12 will now happen on Sun Apr 24, on the ANZAC Day long weekend. All tickets will automatically be valid for the new dates so no action is required by ticket holders. Refunds will be available from point of purchase for those who are unable to attend the rescheduled dates. The band would like to apologise to everyone inconvenienced by this development and thank everyone who has sent Rob ‘get well’ messages. Despite the positive test he actually feels a bit better today and is confident of a full and speedy recovery.
