Hey, music lovers! Guess what? The iconic Aussie band Jet is about to reach a massive milestone. Yes, you heard it right! They are preparing to be inducted into the famous ARIA Hall of Fame. Let us dive deep into this exciting news and celebrate this momentous occasion together.
Celebrating Two Glorious Decades
It feels like yesterday when Jet stormed onto the music scene with their rocking tunes and energetic performances. Can you believe it has already been 20 years since their first album, “Get Born,” hit the shelves?
Nic Cester, the frontman of Jet, could not contain his excitement and said, “We are all quite chuffed and honored to be in such esteemed company. We are humbled to receive this recognition.”
The Band that Rocked the World
Do you remember their hit single “Are You Gonna Be My Girl”? Oh, what a song that was! It not only rocked the charts worldwide but even featured in an Apple iPod campaign, pushing Jet into the international spotlight.
With their one-of-a-kind sound that mixed the best bits of bands like Iggy and the Stooges and Oasis, Jet truly changed the Australian rock music scene. Moreover, let us not forget the amazing awards they won, including six at the 2004 ARIA Awards, making “Get Born” one of the top Aussie rock albums ever.
A Comeback We All Waited For
We all felt a void when Jet took a break in 2012. But guess what? They are back! Although they teased us with a brief comeback in 2017, this time, it seems like they are here to stay with a reunion tour announced earlier this year. The first show kicks off on September 22 at Melbourne’s Forum Theatre, and we cannot wait!
However, some sad news is that Chris Carter will not join the tour due to family commitments.
A Well-Deserved Place in the Hall of Fame
This induction is super special, not just for Jet but for all of us music enthusiasts. It is a big deal because the ARIA stopped inducting artists into the Hall of Fame during the pandemic, and this is a comeback of the tradition after a long gap since 2020.
Moreover, it is no small feat to follow in the footsteps of the great Indigenous artist Archie Roach, who was the last to be inducted in 2020. Annabelle Herd, the big boss of ARIA, was all praises for Jet, highlighting their massive influence on the rock scene globally.
Mark Your Calendars for the Grand Event
Now, here is the plan. Block November 15, 2023, in your calendars because that is when the grand induction will take place at the ARIA Awards in Sydney. Plus, there is more good news for fans around the world. The event will premiere live on Stan, followed by a broadcast on the Nine Network, and will also be available on ARIA’s YouTube channel.
Moreover, watch for the nominations, which will be announced live on September 21 on the ARIA Awards website.
There you go, fellow Jet fans! We are all in for a treat with their reunion tour and the upcoming ARIA Awards. Let us get ready to celebrate the fantastic journey of Jet as they get set to take their well-deserved place in the ARIA Hall of Fame. Let the rock and roll festivities begin!
