At each tour stop, Jet will treat fans to a trip down memory lane by performing their iconic debut album, Get Born, in its entirety. This means classics like “Are You Gonna Be My Girl,” “Look What You’ve Done,” “Rollover DJ,” and “Get Me Outta Here” will reverberate through venues, just as invigorating now as they were two decades ago.

Reflecting on the album’s impact, Nic Cester shared, “Get Born was a rare and unique moment of total planetary alignment where we somehow managed to capture lighting in a bottle.”

The monumental success of Get Born is undeniable, having scooped up six ARIA Awards and achieving nine times platinum certification in Australia alone. Internationally, Jet soared to the top of the US Modern Rock and Mainstream Rock charts and shared stages with music legends like the Rolling Stones, Oasis, and Kings Of Leon. With worldwide album sales exceeding 5 million, Jet’s legacy is firmly cemented in rock history.

Following a hiatus in 2012, Jet made a triumphant return in 2017 with sold-out shows alongside Bruce Springsteen and the E-Street Band. Their subsequent performances at Fuji Rock festival and sold-out gigs at Sydney and Melbourne Zoos confirmed that the demand for Jet’s electrifying performances remained as strong as ever.

Comprised of Nic Cester (vocals/guitar), Chris Cester (vocals/drums), Cam Muncey (vocals/guitar), and Mark Wilson (bass), Jet has been a mainstay in the Australian music scene since their formation in the late ’90s. Their journey from the release of their first EP, Dirty Sweet, to induction into the 2023 ARIA Hall Of Fame is a testament to their enduring impact on the industry.

Tickets for all shows will be up for grabs starting at 11 am local time on Friday, March 8. Find out more here.
