Midnight Oil Announce Intimate Sydney Pub Show

Aussie rock icons Midnight Oil have come good on their promise, today announcing a Sydney pub gig for April, which will kick off the band’s 2017 The Great Circle world tour.

The Oils are set to perform at Selina’s in Coogee Bay Hotel (a venue they performed at during their early days) on Thursday, 13th April, and tickets for the show will only be available via a ballot system, due to the overwhelming demand and those pesky scalpers.

Supporting the show will be local band Winston Surfshirt.

To register for the ballot, head here before 8am AEST Monday, 2nd April and put down your details. You can only register for the ballot once, and multiple entries will be disqualified.

Successful applicants will be selected randomly so that everyone has an equal chance of getting a ticket. Then, Ticketek will email all the successful punters on Tuesday, 4th April with details about how to purchase tickets, which will cost $99.90 each, including GST and booking fees.

Ticket sales for successful applications will open at 12pm AEST Tuesday, 4th April and close 12pm Friday, 7th April.

The Australian leg of Midnight Oil’s The Great Circle world tour will begin in October, and scalpers have already been selling tickets for the tour for up to $1,000.

Catch details of the band’s Sydney pub show and upcoming national tour, below.

Ballot Instructions

– Registration for the ballot is free but it does not guarantee that you will be allocated ticket(s).

– There will be no physical tickets whatsoever for this show – successful purchasers will be notified of entry procedure which may involve queuing.

– The successful applicant must be attending the event (i.e. you cannot purchase on someone else’s behalf).

– If you apply for two tickets, you (i.e. the successful ticket applicant and purchaser) must personally attend the event with your guest.

– Successful ticket applicants will be required to provide Photo ID on the night in order to gain admission to the venue. If you do not have Photo ID that matches the name on the credit card that was used to purchase your ticket – then you will not be admitted under any circumstances.

– This is a General Admission event. Those requiring special needs accessibility should still enter the ballot. Successful applicants will be sent information about direct entry for the night.

– Selina’s is a fully licensed venue so no persons under the age of 18 can be admitted due to NSW liquor licensing laws.

In keeping with all other messaging around this tour, Midnight Oil and Frontier Touring STRONGLY warn fans NOT to buy tickets for this gig by any means other than those described above. There will be no physical tickets whatsoever for this show so any websites claiming to have “Selina’s tickets” prior to the day of show cannot possibly be telling the truth.
