As part of ‘The Great Circle 2017’ tour, which marks the band’s first series of world tour dates in 15 years, Australian alternative rock vets Midnight Oil invaded New York City this past weekend for back-to-back sold-out concerts at the famous Webster Hall in the East Village of Manhattan.

We attended the May 14th showing at Webster Hall, where the Aussie rock greats discharged a hefty 22 track, two-encore setlist, consisting of hits from their albums Diesel and Dust, Place Without a Postcard, Blue Sky Mining, 0, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1, Earth and Sun and Moon, Red Sails in the Sunset and their latest full-length offering Capricornia. A packed house enjoyed live renditions of classic tracks like “Power and the Passion,” “The Dead Heart,” “Beds Are Burning,” and “Forgotten Years,” along with a cover of John Lennon‘s “Instant Karma!” and so much more.

Check out more exclusive photos from the NY show and the band’s setlist below.
