The iconic and legendary Australian rock band and agitators, Midnight Oil, are returning to the UK in the summer.

In an online message to fans the five original members of Midnight Oil explained:

"We really enjoyed making music together again on The Great Circle tour and the reaction from everyone was so positive that weve decided to do a bit more of it in 2019. There wont be anywhere near as many shows this time around but were keen to keep performing while there are still new places to play and new things to say. Its as simple as that really.

Despite a 15 year break while frontman, Peter Garrett, became a minister in the Australian Government, last years world tour saw the Oils in the same incendiary form which made them one of the world's most captivating live experiences during the 1980s and 1990s. Intensely political songs like Beds Are Burning, Blue Sky Mining and Power & The Passion took on even greater urgency in the age of Trump and Brexit leaving critics gushing across five continents.
