SYDNEY, NSW (CelebrityAccess) — Australian rockers Midnight Oil announced that after a decade, they are reforming the group with plans for an international tour.
"We know it’s been a while but we wanted to tell you that the five of us are finally making plans to get together again for some gigs next year. We’re looking forward to hopefully playing overseas and touring our homeland for the first time since 2002," the band wrote in a message posted on their official website.
While the group has not toured together since frontman Peter Garrett announced in 2002 that he was leaving the band to pursue a career in politics, the group did reform most recently for several shows in 2009, including a pair of dates at the Royal Theatre in Canberra, and a headlining performance at the Sound Relief concert in Melbourne.
As for their new tour plans, there seems to be nothing concrete to report as of yet, with the band stating that "We won’t know exactly when, where and what we’ll be doing before next January at the earliest." – Staff Writers
