When Midnight Oil played the Wiltern in May — on their first tour in 15 years — they burst right out of the gate with “Redneck Wonderland” and it was as if no time had passed. The politically charged rockers’ message of social justice is still as potent as ever; “Put Down That Weapon” followed a moment of silence for the Manchester bombing victims. After frontman Peter Garrett spent years serving in the Australian Labor Party, the band decided to hit the globe for this massive tour dubbed The Great Circle. As far as rock stars go, Garrett is more “cool high school teacher” than “lust object,” but his presence is still striking and his voice is tip-top. Expect all the pounding, sing-along hits, a bit of Trump-bashing and a sideshow by Rob Hirst, one of the all-time greatest drummers on the planet.
