Jet Add Heaps More Shows To ‘Get Born’ 20th Anniversary Run

Jet are keeping the party pumping in honour of the 20th anniversary of their iconic debut album, Get Born. After reuniting last year for their first shows in half a decade, the Aussie rock royals are extending the birthday celebrations with a new ‘Extended Edition’ of regional tour dates across the country in May and June of 2024.

The band will play the album in full – including hits like ‘Are You Gonna Be My Girl,’ ‘Look What You’ve Done’, ‘Cold Hard Bitch’, ‘Rollover DJ’ and ‘Get Me Outta Here’ – to fans in Torquay, Hobart, Fremantle, Brunswick Heads, the Sunshine Coast, the NSW Central Coast, Kiama, Canberra and Newcastle, as well as a slot on Darwin’s BASSINTHEGRASS festival lineup.

Jet – ‘Are You Gonna Be My Girl’

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

Bassist Mark Wilson added: “I don’t remember much about the actual day Get Born was released. 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.”

Arriving in September 2003, Get Born introduced Jet to the world and made them household names here in Australia. The album debuted at number three and peaked at number one on the ARIA Albums Chart. In 2004, the band enjoyed a sweep at the ARIA Awards, taking home Album of the Year, Best Group, Best Rock Album and Breakthrough Artist, along with Single of the Year for ‘Are You Gonna Be My Girl’.

Following Get Born, Jet released second album Shine On in 2006, with third and final record Shaka Rock arriving in 2009. They disbanded in 2012, reuniting five years later for headline shows and a string of dates supporting Bruce Springsteen. The following year, they toured in support of Get Born‘s 15th anniversary.

Last year, the band also chalked up a huge milestone, being officially inducted into the ARIA Hall Of Fame.
