MIDNIGHT OIL & FIRST NATIONS COLLABORATORS PRESENTS
Presented by Roundhouse Entertainment & Frontier Touring
MIDNIGHT OIL will perform a handful of special outdoor concerts called "Makarrata Live" including Sirromet Wines in Mount Cotton, QLD and Mt Duneed Estate in Geelong, VIC.
Leading First Nations vocalists DAN SULTAN, ALICE SKYE, TROY CASSAR-DALEY, TASMAN KEITH and LEAH FLANAGAN will join the band for all Makarrata Live dates. Accompanied by backing vocalist LIZ STRINGER and saxophonist ANDY BICKERS.
Plus special support sets from DAN SULTAN and ALICE SKYE at Mt Duneed Estate, Geelong.
Sydney bassist Adam Ventoura will also play with MIDNIGHT OIL at these shows due to the sudden passing of longtime band member Bones Hillman late last year.
Midnight Oil's mini-album The Makarrata Project topped the ARIA charts last November. Next month the band will finally bring that acclaimed new music, plus a slew of other iconic Midnight Oil Reconciliation songs, to Australian concert stages for five special outdoor events.
These shows will seek to elevate The Uluru Statement From The Heart which calls for a Makarrata - or "truth telling".
“We’re relieved and excited at the thought of finally playing music to live audiences again,” said Midnight Oil frontman Peter Garrett. “Lots of the songs which have struck the deepest chords with our audiences over the years, like Beds Are Burning, Jimmy Sharman’s Boxers, The Dead Heart and Truganini, revolve around Indigenous issues so we’re definitely inspired to be playing a set that combines older songs like those with newer songs that share similar lyrical themes.”
All shows will take place in strict accordance with each state's COVID19 protocols.
We look forward to welcoming you back safely to our venues in 2021.
