In between Midnight Oil’s two New Zealand concerts, the band’s charismatic frontman Peter Garrett makes a special intimate appearance on 10 September to talk about his creative and political life, as outlined in his recent memoir Big Blue Sky.
Peter Garrett’s life has been fully and passionately lived. A man of boundless energy, compassion, intelligence and creativity, he has already achieved enough to fill several lives. From his early interest in equality and justice to fronting iconic Australian band Midnight Oil; from his time as a galvanising activist for the environment to being a minister in two Labor governments, Garrett has an extraordinary story to tell.
Garrett appears in conversation with journalist Finlay Macdonald, followed by an audience Q & A. Fans will then have the chance to buy his book and meet the man in person to have it signed.
