The tour will culminate in a crescendo of energy at Sydney’s famed Enmore Theatre on September 30.

Get ready to be transported two decades back as Jet takes you on a nostalgic voyage through their monumental debut album, Get Born.

Expect to relive the anthemic magic of tracks like Are You Gonna Be My Girl, Look What You’ve Done, Rollover DJ, and  Get Me Outta Here.  These timeless gems sound as fresh and invigorating today as they did when they first rocked the airwaves two decades ago.

Get Born was a veritable musical triumph, earning Jet an astounding six ARIA Awards and achieving a platinum certification nine times over in Australia.

Its global success was equally remarkable, with Jet reigning supreme on both the US Modern Rock and Mainstream Rock charts. Their collaboration with giants like the Rolling Stones, Oasis, and Kings Of Leon propelled their popularity skyward, amassing worldwide album sales in excess of 5 million.

Jet’s journey is one of highs and hiatuses, with their reformation in 2017 creating seismic waves of excitement among their fervent fans.

The undeniable demand for their music was affirmed through sensational shows with Bruce Springsteen and the E-Street Band, followed by triumphant performances at iconic venues like the Fuji Rock festival in Japan and Sydney and Melbourne Zoos.

Jet comprises the formidable lineup of Nic Cester (vocals/guitar), Chris Cester (vocals/drums), Cam Muncey (vocals/guitar), and Mark Wilson (bass).

Formed in the late ’90s in Melbourne, Jet’s meteoric rise began with the release of their debut EP Dirty Sweet in 2002, followed by the breakout album Get Born. Despite a temporary disbandment in 2012, the allure of rock and roll proved irresistible, leading to Jet’s triumphant return in 2017.
