Momentum may have slowed in the United States, but internationally, the Oils were still going strong. In 1994, the band played in South Africa after Nelson Mandela was elected president. Other bands had lifted their ban on playing in South Africa after the end of apartheid, but Midnight Oil deliberately waited until Mandela�s election to perform. In Johannesburg, they played an outdoor concert with Sting. Hirst said he hoped to eventually release the concert as a live album within the next year or two.

Thanks - a very nicely written summary of all things Oily. The link to the review of the rerelease of D&D is worth a look too.
