Midnight Oil Charge Past 200 000 Ticket Sales

There’s no doubt everyone knows about Midnight Oil’s gargantuan reunion tour set to go down during the back half of 2017. After mere hours of being on sale, the band have sold out their entire US tour, a selection of European shows and a handful of Aussie arena-sized appearances, chalking up 200 000 ticket sales for The Great Circle tour. It is evident that there has been no better political climate than that of 2017 for legendary rockers Midnight Oil to return to the stage.

Due to this overwhelming demand, Midnight Oil and Frontier Touring have announced subsequent shows for most states. The two groups further revealed that some quality tickets have been held for each of the sold out Australian dates to be sold at a later date to fans, hoping this would further stop ticket scalpers from ripping off diehard fans.

Frontier Touring issued the following statement, urging fans not to buy tickets from any source other than the original location of sale:

Fans are explicitly warned NOT to buy potentially fake tickets from so called ‘reseller’ websites. Such unofficial ticketing companies may currently be legal and thus beyond the band’s control but they typically charge grossly inflated prices and the band does not profit from, nor support, their re-sale activities.

“The first tickets for the Australian dates on “The Great Circle 2017” world tour will not be printed and mailed out until early August”, according to Live Nation, “so any online scalpers claiming to be in possession of tickets before that time are knowingly misleading fans.” Live Nation and Midnight Oil continues to urge fans to only buy tickets via the official outlets listed on www.midnightoil.com/tour-dates and www.frontiertouring.com/midnightoil.

To reiterate- only buy tickets from the official source, and definitely do not buy from a ticket scalper or resale website, there will be more chances for you to get a ticket! There are tickets still available for the remaining shows, so check below for your chance to see these seminal rockers take the stage for the first time in 15 years.
