Celebrating the return of the Oils to stages right around the world, THE MIDNIGHT OIL SHOW celebrate the music, the influences, and the artistry of the mighty Midnight Oil…and this Saturday night August 19 at Sphinx Hotel they’re bringing their Oil-some show to Geelong in a massive night of legendary Oz Rock!!

MIDNIGHT OIL were more than just a rock & roll band. From the northern beaches of Sydney to the streets of Manhattan, they stopped traffic, inflamed passions, inspired fans, challenged concepts and broke new ground. To see Midnight Oil in full flight was to experience the full visceral, transcendent, kinetic power of live rock & roll. To experience Midnight Oil was to be inspired by ideas, to be encouraged to live life more passionately, to get involved in the world around you.

This Saturday at the Sphinx we celebrate the music, the influences, and the artistry of Midnight Oil, as we share it with a new generation.

Garry Hickman’s amazing portrayal of Peter Garrett rocked Australian stages in the first authorized Oils tribute “Head Injuries” back in the 90’s.  No one since then has ever been game to tackle the role!  This Saturday in Geelong Garry returns with Dylan Boyd and the boys from acclaimed Foo Fighter Show – The Faux Fighters!  Together back in 2015 they formed a rock & roll mission to “Bring back The Oils”…and it seems to be working!

It’s a night of non-stop classic Oils as the Midnight Oil Show perform the Sphinx Hotel, 2 Thompson Rd, Geelong.  Pre-sale tickets are only $20 or $25 at the door.  For more details visit www.sphinxhotel.com.au
