Iconic Australian albums
The band formed in Australia's capital city, Canberra, in 1972 was originally called Farm, before settling on Midnight Oil by picking a name out of a hat. The group consisting of Peter Garrett (vocals), Jim Moginie (guitars & keyboard), Rob Hirst (drums), Martin Rotsey (guitar) and Bones Hillman (bass) have been rocking stages with their abundance of energy for what feels like an eternity. It was not until their fourth studio album '10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1' that they started to experience considerable radio airplay and break into international markets. This set the band up for a dominant period in which their following three albums, all reached #1 in the Australian charts, while also experiencing considerable success in New Zealand, Norway, Sweden and Switzerland. 'Diesel and Dust' is a legendary recording that was ranked #1 in a book titled The 100 Best Australian Albums, listed ahead of iconic groups such as AC/DC and Cold Chisel. With a number of hit songs from these famous albums and others worth seeing live, don't miss the chance to buy or sell Midnight Oil tickets online on StubHub.
The most unique dancing you'll ever see
The group's live performances have become synonymous with Garrett's infamous erratic dancing. The frontman, who pursued a prosperous career in politics while the band had a hiatus between 2002 and 2016, is well-known for his awkwardly animated dance moves and you're sure to get a rounded show that is much more than just music. Their music is heavily centred around political themes, often opening dialogue surrounding subjects such as environmentalism, nuclear disarmament and support of Indigenous people and culture. The political content of their songs has helped the band grow a hardened cult following and you can expect diehard fans to attend their concerts no matter where they are held. The group were immortalised when inducted into the Australian Recording Industry Association Hall of Fame in 2006, an esteemed list that includes John Farnham and Little River Band.
