Midnight Oil Up For A Reunion Tour


In an interview with FasterLouder, Midnight Oil drummer Rob Hirst hinted at a possible reunion tour, stating that all members were "up for" it.

Hirst explained that the band is currently waiting for frontman and former politician Peter Garrett to free up his schedule: "Peter's writing his memoirs at the moment, so that might take a while, but I think everyone's up for it."

"Bonesy's living in Nashville, and by all accounts playing better than ever - the calluses on his fingers must be enormous by now. And of course Martin, Jim and I all play in The Break, so everyone's around."

"We'll just see down the track. Hopefully it wont be so long that we won't be able to put on the sort of show that we'd like to put on," Hirst said.

The iconic Australian band ended things in 2002, as Garrett moved into his political career. Since then they have reformed twice for charity events; WaveAid in 2005 and Sound Relief in 2009.
