“Get Born was a rare and unique moment of total planetary alignment where we somehow managed to capture lighting in a bottle,” said vocalist Nic Cester.

Set to ignite stages across the country this September, Jet return with their first full band shows in over five years. They’re celebrating two decades of Get Born, an absolute sensation in Australia back in 2003. Catch them when they head to Melbourne’s own Forum for a show on September 22.

The album propelled Jet to superstardom, earning them six ARIA Awards and achieving an impressive nine times platinum certification in their home country. In fact, it remains one of the top 5 highest-selling Australian rock albums of all time.

Jet will perform their iconic hits, including Are You Gonna Be My Girl and Rollover DJ. The band will be taking a trip down memory lane, revisiting their seminal 2003 LP, Get Born, and playing the entire album from start to finish.

The tour kicks off on September 22 at Melbourne’s Forum Theatre, followed by a performance at Hindley Street Music Hall in Adelaide on September 23. On September 29, Jet will rock the stage at Brisbane’s Fortitude Music Hall before concluding their tour at the Enmore Theatre in Sydney on September 30.

Although Jet disbanded in 2012, they triumphantly returned in 2017, supporting Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band during their sold-out Australian tour. Since then, the band has performed sporadically across Australia and internationally, making each appearance a cherished moment for fans.

“I don’t remember much about the actual day Get Born was released,” says Jet’s bassist, Mark Wilson. “I think we were in Pittsburgh. I’m sure we celebrated, but to be honest we celebrated every night back in those days. 2003 was one big blurry haze for me.”
