Midnight Oil Played A Surprise Gig At The Marrickville Bowlo

It was their first performance since 2009.

Bones Hillman, Rob Hirst, Peter Garrett, Jim Moginie and Martin Rotsey of Midnight Oil are preparing for a massive 2017 world tour.

It seems The Oils just couldn't wait for their official world tour to kick off. On Sunday night, Midnight Oil took to the stage at Marrickville Bowling Club for a secret gig ahead of the Great Circle 2017 World Tour.

The lucky fans loved it.

Peter Garrett and co. have still got it. Their sneaky hometown gig got a rave review.

So, @midnightoilband just played their first show in forever. At Marrickville Bowlo. Perfect.

The official tour kicks off Thursday 13 April at Selina's in Coogee Bay Hotel, where they used to play in the early years -- tickets were only available in a ballot system which is now sadly closed. The rest of the massive world tour is selling out fast but a few domestic dates still have tickets.
