Midnight Oil announce Great Barrier Reef benefit concert

Midnight Oil are kicking off their Australian reunion tour with an intimate benefit concert in protest of developmental threats to the Great Barrier Reef.

The reef is currently under threat from the Adani mine and mass coral bleaching performed on our much-loved natural wonder.

The show will be called “Oils At The Reef” and will be recorded and filmed in Cairns on Friday, 6th October.

“We believe the future of the Great Barrier Reef is clearly on the line. We’re at the eleventh hour for our most important natural asset." said Midnight Oil lead singer and former politician Peter Garrett. 

“As the largest living organism in our world the reef is a treasure of extraordinary beauty itself but it’s also a symbol of greater questions we all have to answer.”

All proceeds from the show will be donated to scientific research organisation 'Great Barrier Reef Legacy'.

Midnight Oil are no strangers to raising awareness about environmental issues, recently using a show on their Great Circle world tour in Brazil to protest mining at the mouth of the Amazon River.

Tickets to the "Oils at The Reef" show go on sale 10am Wednesday 27 September via ticketlink.com.au.
