Midnight Oil Shows To Go Ahead As Planned Following Jim Moginie Mishap

Midnight Oil will finish the Great Circle World Tour this week although lead guitarist Jim Moginie will be seated for his duties after pulling a hamstring at Wednesday night’s Melbourne show.

Moginie was injuried after falling off stage towards the end of the second show at the Sidney Myer Music Bowl. He spent all day today in hospital in Melbourne. The mishap put the rest of the tour in doubt.

Midnight Oil can now confirm that the show will go on. In a statement they announced:

Midnight Oil and are pleased to confirm that the scheduled performance on Saturday 11th of November at The Domain of “The Great Circle 2017” World Tour will proceed as planned despite the serious injury suffered onstage in Melbourne last night by the group’s guitarist and keyboardist Jim Moginie.

MRI tests today revealed that Jim has a hamstring avulsion; a debilitating injury where the hamstring tendon is completely detached from the bone. As such he will need to remain seated throughout the show instead of standing for his guitar songs as would otherwise have been the case.

The Great Circle 2017 has been one of the most successful tours in Australian music history reaching over half a million people globally. Midnight Oil has played 74 shows this year across 16 countries and 5 continents. The reviews everywhere have been extraordinary so if you have a chance to witness any of these four remaining shows don’t miss it (there are still limited tickets available to all shows!).
