Here’s the Midnight Oil setlist from today’s surprise Sydney gig; their first show since 2009

Tonight, legendary Sydney group Midnight Oil played a surprise, mid-afternoon hometown gig at the Marrickville Bowling Club (capacity being around the 400 mark), in what was their first public show since 2009’s Sound Relief appearance.

The gig sits ahead of their already announced “intimate pub” performance which is happening this Thursday at Selina’s in Coogee, which officially kicks off their extensive world tour dubbed “The Great Circle”. Their next run of shows around Australia will be at the end of the year.

Here’s a look at the setlist from the show, which reportedly ran for a little under an hour.
