Midnight Oil are clearing out the cupboards. The band will list nearly 40 pieces of music gear for sale at reverb.com from next Friday 16 November, 2018.

“After last year’s Great Circle Tour, our gear storage locker is completely full. We want to pass these instruments on to musicians who will appreciate and use them,” said guitarist/keyboardist Jim Moginie. “Some of the items we’re selling have been used more than others, but everything has been broken in by the band in one way or another.”
