MP3: Download Midnight Oil’s 5/18 Chicago Show

Power and passion par excellence…

By Uncle Blurt

There are a lot of us here at BLURT who are big fans of Australian rock bands, and Midnight Oil is near the top of the list. So your ol’ Uncle was mighty chuffed when news arrived that Peter Garrett & Co. would be barnstorming across North America throughout May for their “Great Circle 2017 Tour.” Last week they performed in Chicago, and now an audience recording of the show has surfaced on Dime A Dozen, with Big O zine picking up the ball and posting the MP3s, along with downloadable artwork, at their site.

MP3: Midnight Oil – The Vic Theatre, Chicago, IL; May 18, 2017.

Worth noting: the Oils performed their fourth album, 1982’s 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 , in its entirety during the first set, then plenty more fan favorites and politically-charged hits. The full tracklisting is below.
