Midnight Oil Launches Final Tour in Vancouver

Australian rock legends Midnight Oil kicked off their final tour together last night (June 1) at the Malkin Bowl in Vancouver, BC. It was announced that this will be the band’s final full tour together. This will support their 2022 album RESIST. This show kicked off the North American leg of the tour and was supported by Leah Flanagan. Although they have been playing dates throughout the years, this is the band’s first full tour since 2017. 

Midnight Oil debuted in 1978 with their energetic self-titled LP. From the beginning, their lyrics and energy have been charged with political unrest and fast-paced song structures. Their latest doesn’t stray far from this light. RESIST is an album fueled by the band’s anger at the declining state of our environment. Their 13th album is a call to arms to fight against climate change and marks their first release since the passing of their original bass player, Bones Hillman, who passed away from cancer in 2020. 

The setlist for their final tour together is rightfully career-spanning. There are songs being played from 10 of their 13 albums, totaling up to a 22-song odyssey of the band’s discography including a one-song encore. Allegedly, there was supposed to be a two-song encore but it was whittled down to one record due to time constraints. 

Midnight Oil’s final tour has them going across North America before moving over to Europe then New Zealand to finish things off.
