Peter Garrett Hooks Up 76-Year-Old Mum With Midnight Oil Tickets

Triple M Hot Breakfast regular James Young has told a brilliant story about the aftermath of the Midnight Oil gig on Wednesday night.

James met an elderly lady on the walk into the city who he then accompanied back to her car.

The lady was waiting for her son who had decided to stop off at a city bar.

The man later met up with James at the Cherry Bar, where he revealed he had been to 8 Midnight Oil shows on this tour - including 2 in America.

“I said ‘How did you get tickets to those? They sold out in a second.’ He said ‘They did sell out but then mum wrote a letter to Peter Garrett and explained that I’d missed out on tickets,” James said on Triple M's Hot Breakfast.

“Peter Garrett wrote back and said we can get you into the Montreal show and the Seattle, Washington show. She got my name on the door so I went and saw those two shows!”

What a story! Mum of the year!
