Midnight Oil Rocked The Reef Last Night

The Oils were dominant!

Midnight Oil roared into the Great Barrier Reef last night, playing a set at the Tanks Art Centre in Cairns.

The Oils donated all proceeds from the show to Great Barrier Reef Legacy and the Australian Marine Conservation Society, and made statements about the state of the reef with a ‘coral not coal’ banner.

"It's one thing to talk about this stuff and it's another to do something," Peter Garrett said.

They played a setlist mixed with classics and deeper cuts, and Triple M was there for all of it:

 

Surfing With a Spoon

Koala Sprint

River Runs Red

Shakers and Movers

Sometimes

Earth and Sun and Moon

Tone Poem

Ships of Freedom

Wedding Cake Island

Blue Sky Mine

Short Memory

One Country

No Time for Games

Dreamworld
