Eccles Entertainment wishes to advise that due to continued uncertainty around event planning and capacity restrictions in New Zealand, Midnight Oil’s ‘Resist’: The Final Tour will be postponed until September 2022.

‘We are disappointed we have to postpone the New Zealand leg of our RESIST tour and apologise to those impacted by this postponement. However, we are grateful that we have managed to figure out a new window to play New Zealand this September and are excited to bring RESIST: The Final Tour to our Kiwi fans’. – Midnight Oil

“To say I am disappointed is an extreme understatement but at least we will get to experience The OiIs final tour in September. Midnight Oil are such a great live band, they actually scare me!” - Promoter Brent Eccles

The tour will now commence on Thursday 1 September at Christchurch Arena, followed by Saturday 3 September at Auckland’s Spark Arena. Due to the TSB Arena being unavailable in Wellington, the show has been moved to Michael Fowler Centre on Tuesday 6 September.

Fans in Christchurch and Auckland that purchased tickets for the original dates do not need to take any action. These tickets remain valid for the new dates. Wellington ticket holders will receive new tickets to reflect the venue change in coming weeks. Fans who are unable to attend the rescheduled dates can obtain a full refund before May 1, 2022, and will be emailed by the original ticketing outlet with the refund process.

BRAND NEW SHOW

This may be the last time we see the Oils play. It was a knockout” – Sydney Morning Herald

“Fans at the show will carry the memory of their heroes exiting the global stage in peak form and at full power.” – Illinois Entertainer

“As Midnight Oil close things out with their final tour, it’s clear that they’re still performing at the peak of their collective powers.".” – Rolling Stone

“The band are going out on top: seasoned performers as passionate and energised as ever, with their message of resistance – threaded through almost every element of tonight’s show – raging on.” - NME

‘We are currently on tour across the North America and having a blast. These final shows have been amazing: part celebration and reunion with our audience and part the catharsis of an Oils show at full blast and we cannot wait to bring them to life one last time in Aotearoa, New Zealand. Thanks for bearing with us and we’ll see you on the road! – Midnight Oil

Nobody can underestimate what this band means. With a career spanning over five decades, Midnight Oil are truly one of the great rock n roll bands of this generation.

From the northern beaches of Sydney to the streets of Manhattan, they have stopped traffic, inflamed passions, inspired fans, challenged the concepts of “business as usual” and broken much new ground. Seeing Midnight Oil in full flight is to experience the kinetic power of live rock’n’roll. They leave you inspired to live life more passionately and to Resist.

Midnight Oil calls for governments to urgently take serious actions that reduce carbon pollution. This tour will embrace best practices for emission reductions and offsetting. A portion of proceeds will be set aside for organizations seeking to elevate the existential threat posed by the climate crisis.

“Midnight Oil was passionate and relevant as ever” – Illawarra Mercury

Resist will be a fitting, forward looking, statement for a band whose clarion call has always been “it’s better to die on your feet than live on your knees”. The tour will see them performing classic Midnight Oil songs from across their repertoire while also showcasing some urgent new works. As the title makes abundantly clear, Resist engages with the issues of today, like the lead single “Rising Seas” which tackles the climate crisis in typically uncompromising fashion.

Peter Garrett says, “We hope everyone who hears this album and gets to one of the shows will come away charged up about the planet’s future, saying ‘why stop now?'.
