Midnight Oil roared into the Great Barrier Reef last night, playing a set at the Tanks Art Centre in Cairns.
The Oils donated all proceeds from the show to Great Barrier Reef Legacy and the Australian Marine Conservation Society, and made statements about the state of the reef with a ‘coral not coal’ banner.
"It's one thing to talk about this stuff and it's another to do something," Peter Garrett said.
They played a setlist mixed with classics and deeper cuts, and Triple M was there for all of it:
Surfing With a Spoon
River Runs Red
Shakers and Movers
Earth and Sun and Moon
Ships of Freedom
Wedding Cake Island
Blue Sky Mine
No Time for Games
Read About It
The Oils play again tonight at Kuranda Ampitheatre in Cairns.
