It was a reunion of old rock mates when Peter Garrett returned to the concert stage to perform with Hunters and Collectors at the Enmore Theatre on Friday.

The sold out crowd erupted when Garrett and Midnight Oil guitarist Jim Moginie joined the band for the final song with the former MP sounding in fine voice.

He provoked a roar of approval from the middle-aged crowd when he busted into his signature dance moves.

The Oils frontman only got the call up to guest at the gig a few hours before the band went on stage and stayed for the after party with a band who had toured the world together.

Hunters, who have been playing sold out shows around the country since supporting Bruce Springsteen at his Melbourne stadium shows, put on one of the concerts of the year.

Mark Seymour and the band ripped through a powerful set which included every fan favourite including Talking To A Stranger, The Slab, When The River Runs Dry and Holy Grail.

The roof lifted when everyone joined in for the traditional singalong of Throw Your Arms Around Me.
