Midnight Oil Strikes the Deepest Chord
On Saturday March 13 at Hope Estate, Midnight Oil will perform Makarrata Live.
Throughout the night the band will be joined on stage by an incredible line up of First Nations collaborators for a unique concert event featuring music from their #1 mini-album The Makarrata Project plus iconic Midnight Oil songs of reconciliation from throughout their career.
“We’re relieved and excited at the thought of finally playing music to live audiences again”, said Midnight Oil frontman Peter Garrett.
“Lots of the songs which have struck the deepest chords with our audiences over the years, like Beds Are Burning, Jimmy Sharman’s Boxers, The Dead Heart and Truganini, revolve around Indigenous issues, so we’re definitely inspired to be playing a set that combines older songs like those with newer songs that share similar lyrical themes.”
“I think everyone’s looking forward to seeing what shape all the music from different eras takes as those gifted singers add their voices to it live. We’ve never done anything like this, so it feels good to still be pushing the envelope a bit despite everything that’s happened in 2020,” added the band’s guitarist and keyboard player, Jim Moginie.
