The announcement of JET’s 15th Anniversary Get Re-Born tour has reignited the passion held for one of Australia’s most successful rock bands, especially in the band’s hometown of Melbourne.

It’s been fifteen years since the now famous hooks and riffs of Jet’s debut album Get Born were unleashed on the world. 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.
Melbourne based Jet – drummer Chris Cester, frontman Nic Cester, guitarist Cameron Muncey and bassist Mark Wilson – formed in 2001 and self-released their first EP, the vinyl only Dirty Sweet in 2002. Get Bornwas released after their label deal with Elektra and was followed by the albums Shine On in 2006 and Shaka Rock in 2009. After riding a wide of international success, Jet disbanded in 2012 before re-forming in early 2017.
To coincide with the tour, Jet will release the Get Born: Live At The Forum album in May – available to purchase on CD, digital and vinyl formats.
