Saturday 4 May 2019
THE SCREAMING JETS | WESTS CARDIFF
In 2019, The Screaming Jets will return to their origins to Wests Cardiff for 2 very special shows on May 3rd & 4th, as part of the celebration of their 30th anniversary following a stellar few years…
In 2016, Triple M Sydney crowned “Better" (penned by former member Grant Walmsley) as the most played single by an Australian artist in its 37 year history.
In that same year their 7th studio album ‘Chrome’ was released, reinstating The Jets as a ‘National treasure, Australians should treasure more…’ and received the coveted Hot Metal Online award for ‘Best of Album’ and debuted in the national Top 40 ARIA charts
In 2018, their ‘Gotcha Covered’ Aussie covers album (the Jets love letter to Oz Rock) debuted at #1 iTunes & Top 20 ARIA chart debut and was backed up by a sell out national tour in Aug/Sept 2018 and followed up by a return to the Red Hot Summer tour with Suzi Quatro in 2019.
The Jets were once touted by Neil Jeffries, Kerrang Magazine as “The Best Live Band I’ve ever witnessed..’, and continue to be a powerhouse, in fact an institution in the Aussie pub rock circuit, as has been proven again and again over recent years.
May 3rd & 4th 2019 will see Wests Cardiff play host to the very first 2 shows of the ‘Dirty Thirty’ national tour. Dave Gleeson, himself a Cardiff lad says… “to return to Cardiff/Newy for the first 2 shows of our thirtieth year celebration is the way it should be. The greater town of Newcastle has always supported us… now it’s our opportunity to show our appreciation for that…Can’t wait to bring this show back to where it all started…. Awesome”.
