It’s been fifteen years since the now famous hooks and riffs of JET’s debut album Get Born were unleashed on the world, and in celebration the band will tour Australia in May and June on the Get Re-Born tour.
To remind us what made them one of Australia’s most successful rock bands of all time, Jet performed a FREE lunchtime concert in AC/DC Lane in the heart of Melbourne’s CBD – a location wedded to the iconic legends of rock that have traversed its city streets for decades past and present.
With global sales of more than 6.5 million albums, Get Born was certified 10 times platinum in Australia and spawned the singles that made Jet famous the world over – Are You Gonna Be My Girl, Look What You’ve Done, Rollover DJ and Get Me Outta Here.
Added to the acclaim were six ARIA Award wins, but the unparalleled success of Get Born at home was only one part of the story. Jet topped the US Modern Rock singles charts and toured worldwide with the likes of the Rolling Stones and Oasis while headlining festivals and reaching #1 on charts globally.
After calling it a day 2012, the band were convinced to reform after a personal request from the legendary Bruce Springsteen to accompany himself and the E-Street Band on their sold out Australian tour of 2017. Following an overwhelming response to those shows, the band dipped their toe back in the live waters with a triumphant appearance at the legendary Fuji Rock festival in Japan and sold out shows at Sydney and Melbourne Zoos. The reaction from fans was enough to suggest that love for the band never waned, and was in fact, stronger than ever.
Jet said, “We’re really excited to play Get Born in full for the first time ever. The idea of playing this album and celebrating 15 years since began our journey is something that’s very special to us, and we can’t wait to get out there and see old friends again, and meet plenty of new ones as well.”
