Midnight Oil concert (attempt 2)
« on: October 01, 2022, 05:11:58 PM »
A few months back I went to a Midnight Oil concert, but it got cancelled before the band started due to extreme weather.

Last night they were back in town to make up for it.  It has been raining all week here, and was up til about an hour before the band came on, but then we had a lovely clear night for the gig.

It was a good show!  They can still rock.  Peter Garrett dancing moves never fail to impress, even if he’s almost 70.

I reckon the average age of the audience was about 45.  There was an elderly lady on a walker frame that set up in front of me, I kid you not.  She knew all the songs and had a great time. 

Some interesting moments where the lead guitarist sat down and did a jazz piano solo for about 3 minutes in the middle of a song…and they had a saxophone accompany on some songs.  Pete had some good rants between songs about Putin, King Charles, and politics in general. 

Anyway, it was a good night out and I’m glad I got to see them one last time.

We caught the support band “King Stingray” as well, they were good too.

Nice, I remember you saying it was raining pretty good the last time.
