Details of the tour were posted this morning on the band's website.

The band, who called it quits in 2002 when singer Peter Garrett chose to launch a political career, will not only be embarking on a very extensive list of Australian dates, but will also be taking the show to New Zealand, Brazil, America, Canada, Germany, the Netherlands, Denmark, Norway, Sweden, England, France, Switzerland, and the Czech Republic.

Australian rock band Midnight Oil said on Friday they will play their first world tour in 20 years, vowing to continue their political activism during the six-month, fifty-show world tour.

"Healthy democracies sometimes need to react against craziness and ugliness and selfishness and stupidity", Garrett said.

Midnight Oil are returning to New Zealand for two concerts in September - their first in this country since 1995. The band is no stranger to controversy.

Midnight Oil last performed in New Zealand at the Mountain Rock Festival in 1995.

The band will perform at 18 venues around Australia in October and November, including several regional centres.
