OILS AT THE REEF
Music Max, noon and 5pm
This benefit gig was recorded in Cairns just after Midnight Oil kicked off their huge national tour, and it’s such a relief to see Peter Garrett back to doing what he does best: using music to tackle the big issues. “We believe the future of the Great Barrier Reef is clearly on the line. We’re at the eleventh hour for our most important natural asset,” he says. The 90-minute showcase includes Blue Sky Mine and US Forces and will also be an opportunity for Oils fans to see the band perform lesser known and more obscure songs.
