Bringing the music of ‘The Oils’ back to live venues around the country, THE MIDNIGHT OIL SHOW celebrate the music, the influences, and the artistry of the mighty Midnight Oil…The Matthew Flinders Hotel is bringing back The Oils tribute…in a massive night of Oz Rock on Saturday June 24th

MIDNIGHT OIL were more than just a rock & roll band. From the northern beaches of Sydney to the streets of Manhattan, they stopped traffic, inflamed passions, inspired fans, challenged concepts and broke new ground. To see Midnight Oil in full flight was to experience the full visceral, transcendent, kinetic power of live rock & roll. To experience Midnight Oil was to be inspired by ideas, to be encouraged to live life more passionately, to get involved in the world around you.

Join the boys for their hometown show as we celebrate the music, the influences, and the artistry of Midnight Oil, as we share it with a new generation.

Garry Hickman’s amazing portrayal of Peter Garrett rocked Australian stages in the first authorized Oils tribute “Head Injuries” back in the 90’s. No one since then has ever been game to tackle the role! In 2016 Garry returns with Dylan Boyd and the boys from acclaimed Foo Fighter Show – The Faux Fighters! Together they form a rock & roll mission to “Bring back The Oils…And it’s working!!”

Joining the Midnight Oil Show at the Matthew Flinders is the special tribute to POWDERFINGER. It’s been 25 years since Powderfinger called it a day, so we’re bringin’ them back too!

It's a high octane two hour show with Australia's biggest 80s hits, sung by the guys that sang 'em back then. On your radio and on Countdown.

Sure, they've been around but that's what makes 'em so damn good!

So, get ready to rock out with your er, whatever takes your fancy. It's time to get loud, get sweaty and get dancing as the hottest 80s show in the country, the Absolutely 80s '1Louder Tour' amps the dial up to 11!

Humble, yet with a wealth of experience in the industry Andrew is a seasoned performer. Opening for mega stars like Mariah Carey (Etihad Stadium 2013) Boys II men (2012) and for Shaggy –during his National tour (2015). Andrew’s versatility has recently seen him play the lead role in the hit production “Let’s Get It On” (The Life & Music Of Marvin Gaye)
