Taren Point Hotel will welcome The Midnight Oil Show to the shire, the last live gig at the venue before the hotel undergoes major renovations.

The band, from Queensland, will play their only Sydney show at Taren Point on Friday, February 24.

The band are billed as a classic, Oz-rock tribute show, with performances of revered Australian bands such as Midnight Oil, The Angels and Divinyls earning rave reviews from fans of the era.

All three bands were popular at pub gigs during the 1980s and 90s. Midnight Oil also has a special connection to the shire, featuring in a gig on the hill at Wanda Beach in 1982 as part of the Double J (2JJ) beach concerts, with thousands of locals turning out. 

Organisers expect the show to sell out, with the band to play three 55-minute sets during a four-hour show.

The band are rated as “the next best thing” to seeing the real Midnight Oil and Divinyls and also do an impressive tribute to former Angels frontman Doc Neeson during their Angels set.

It will be a high energy performance with full costumes combined with the iconic songs and dance moves.

The show starts at 8pm, with pre-sale tickets available for $15 for members and $20 for guests.
