Australian rockers celebrating the 15th anniversary of their debut album Get Born

Jet have announced two shows for July 2018, with presale tickets for the gigs in Manchester and London on sale at 9am on Tue 27 Jul. Tickets go on general sale at 9am on Thu 29 Jul.

The 're-Born' tour comes 15 years after the Australian group released their hugely successful debut album Get Born. As part of the now customary anniversary celebrations, the group will perform two UK shows. They'll bring their classic rock indebted guitar anthems to Manchester's O2 Ritz on Mon 16 Jul, performing the following night at London's O2 Forum Kentish Town.

Released in September 2003, Get Born was packed full of hit singles, including 'Are You Gonna Be My Girl' (with it's uncanny resemblance to Iggy Pop's 'Lust For Life' or The Supremes' 'You Can't Hurry Love', depending who you ask), 'Rollover DJ', 'Look What You've Done' and 'Cold Hard Bitch'.

In total, the album has sold over 3.5 million copies worldwide, and the band have a loyal fanbase despite (to put it mildly) dividing critical opinion. Expect a packed, beer soaked crowd, in Manchester and London to pay their tribute.

Jet UK tour dates:
Mon 16 Jul – O2 Ritz, Manchester
Tue 17 Jul – O2 Kentish Town Forum, London

Presale tickets go on sale through O2 priority at 9am on Tue 27 Jul. Tickets go on general sale at 9am on Thu 29 Jul.
