News: The irrepressible and iconic Jet announces extension of their 20th Anniversary of ‘Get Born’ tour.

The iconic and suave Jet today announce an extended run of dates across Australia this May and June celebrating the 20-year anniversary of their seminal debut album, ‘Get Born’. Jet’s classic album heralded an era where straightforward guitar-based rock came back to the fray with a thumping swagger and an compelling sneery and ultra louche attitude.

Due to popular demand, the band are extending their highly successful anniversary tour from September last year to visit a fresh list of towns and cities across the country. The ‘Extended Edition’ begins in Torquay on Friday May 10 before visiting Hobart, Fremantle, Darwin, Brunswick Heads, Sunshine Coast, Central Coast, Kiama, Canberra and Newcastle.

Jet will play ‘Get Born’ in full, re-visiting the album that brought them international acclaim – including tracks that have become rock classics such as ‘Are You Gonna Be My Girl’, ‘Look What You’ve Done’, ‘Rollover DJ’ and ‘Get Me Outta Here’.

Reflecting on the album, Nic Cester said:

‘Get Born’ was a rare and unique moment of total planetary alignment where we somehow managed to capture lighting in a bottle.

Mark Wilson adds:

 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.
