Midnight Oil adds U.S. festival date, moves Vancouver show to larger venue

A week after suggesting they’d move some sold-out North American shows to larger venues, Midnight Oil has done just that in Vancouver, British Columbia, shifting their gig there from the 900-capacity Commodore Ballroom to the 1,500-capacity Malkin Bowl outdoor amphitheater.

The Vancouver show will still be on June 2, and tickets to the Commodore Ballroom show will be honored; both are general-admission gigs. New tickets for the Malkin Bowl concert go on pre-sale at 10 a.m. Wednesday and on sale to the general public at 10 a.m. Thursday.

The Oils write of their desire to move the concert on the band’s website:

“The band’s decision to move the show to a larger venue follows a deluge of emails and postings from disappointed B.C. fans who missed out when tickets sold out in minutes before reappearing on reseller sites for over $500 each.”

It’s not known whether any additional North American dates will be moved.

The Oils also have announced they’ll play the Beale Street Music Festival in Memphis, Tenn., on May 7, which is now the second date of the North American leg of their reunion tour. That festival is headlined by Kings of Leon, Soundgarden and Widespread Panic.

Additionally, the band has added a second London show to wrap up the European leg on July 23.
