Legendary Midnight Oil frontman, Peter Garrett, has announced two extra shows to round out next year’s tour in support of his forthcoming solo album, The True North. The True North is out March 15, 2024 and is available to pre-order now HERE.

Peter and his band The Alter Egos (which features the Oils Martin Rotsey on guitar and Heather Shannon from The Jezabels on keys) will perform at Newcastle City Hall on Tuesday March 12 with special guests, Raintalker. The show will form part of the annual Great Southern Nights concert series, presented across the State by Destination NSW and ARIA.

Due to popular demand a second night has been added for Melbourne’s Thornbury Theatre on Thursday March 21. All tickets for the first show at that venue have now sold out.

These will be the final dates added to this March tour which will coincide with the release of Peter’s second solo album, The True North. Two tracks have already been released from this strikingly introspective collection of songs – the epically moody title track and first single ‘Innocence Part 1’ which is currently one of the most played songs nationally on the Triple M radio network. Watch the official video for ‘Innocence Parts 1 & 2’ HERE.

In addition to his own headlining tour, Peter Garrett and The Alter Egos will also perform special festival sets at Riverboats and Bluesfest plus a one-off show in New Zealand for Waitangi Day. For all the dates, and to pre-order a copy of The True North check out
