             Midnight Oil (http://www.midnightoil.com/) recently announced it would kick off its global reunion tour (http://www.slicingupeyeballs.com/2017/02/16/midnight-oil-reunion-tour-dates/) with a “back-to-basics pub gig” in Sydney (http://www.slicingupeyeballs.com/2017/04/01/midnight-oil-to-kick-off-worldwide-reunion-tour-with-back-to-basics-pub-gig-in-sydney/) this week, but have now pre-empted that by playing a surprise warm-up set Sunday that marks the band’s first public performance in eight years.
The Oils performed at the Marrickville Bowling Club in Sydney, debuting their reunion ahead of Thursday’s show at Selina’s at the Coogee Bay Hotel. After that, the band to Brazil for dates later in April and into May, then North America, Europe and the U.K., New Zealand, and back to Australia.
Peter Garrett and Co. performed a 10-song set, opening with “Pictures” off 1985’s Species Deceases EP, and playing hits including “Forgotten Years,” “Dreamworld,” “King of the Mountain” and “Best of Both Worlds.” The set also included a pair of songs — “Too Much Sunshine” and “Say Your Prayers” — off the band’s last album, 2002’s Capricornia.
The gig was the first public performance by Midnight Oil since 2009’s Sound Relief concerts (http://www.slicingupeyeballs.com/2009/03/14/midnight-oil-sound-relief-concert-setlist-bushfire/) to benefit the victims of that year’s bushfires.
