MIDNIGHT OIL WORLD TOUR SELLS OVER 200,000 TICKETS 25 SHOWS ALREADY SOLD OUT
EXTRA SYDNEY & MELBOURNE SHOWS TO BE ANNOUNCED SOON DUE TO PHENOMENAL DEMAND
FANS WARNED NOT TO BUY TICKETS THROUGH RESELLERS
Midnight Oil’s “The Great Circle 2017” world tour has struck a massive global chord with music fans. Over 200,000 tickets have been snapped up in just the first few days. All 14 North American shows have sold out plus ‘house full’ signs are already up for many other venues including London’s Hammersmith Apollo and the iconic Olympia Theatre in Paris.
Back home in Australia today’s general public on sale saw all existing tickets sell out for eight shows in Kuranda, Brisbane, Hunter Valley, Sydney, Melbourne, Macedon Ranges, Canberra and Wollongong.
In response to this overwhelming demand, Midnight Oil and Frontier Touring announced immediately that Midnight Oil will play an extra Sydney and Melbourne show in November. Dates, venues, line-ups and on sale times for these two big extra shows are currently being finalised, with details to be announced within 48 hours via tour presenters Triple M and MAX plus the promoter and band websites. People who have missed out on Sydney and Melbourne tickets should therefore rest assured that they will soon have another chance to get tickets to experience Midnight Oil live in those cities!
It was also revealed today that some good tickets have deliberately been withheld for each of the currently sold out Australian dates. These allocations will be released later this year as part of wide ranging efforts to frustrate scalpers. Anxious fans who have missed out so far should sign up to the Frontier Members mailing list (sign up here) and/or the Midnight Oil mailing list (sign up here) to receive notifications about more ticket releases over coming months.
Meanwhile 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. It should also be noted that the first actual tickets for the Australian dates on "The Great Circle 2017” world tour will not be printed and mailed out until early August so any online scalpers claiming to be in possession of tickets before that time are knowingly misleading fans.
Fans are formally advised to only buy tickets via the official outlets listed on www.midnightoil.com/tour-dates and www.frontiertouring.com/midnightoil and to keep an eye out for more official ticket releases over the months ahead.
