The Screaming Jets Gotcha Covered Tour
Due to popular demand, The Screaming Jets will take their extensive catalogue of classic hits and the new covers album Gotcha Covered back on the road for the Summer of 2018/2019. The set list is a heady mix of fan favourite Jets originals, rotating alongside Gotcha Covered tracks and a few surprises from the band’s back catalogue, which spans 30 years of songs… punters are in for a treat!
In July 2018, The Screaming Jets released their 8th studio album Gotcha Covered. It made a top 20 debut on the ARIA Albums Chart, and peaked at #1 on the iTunes Rock Chart and the AIR Albums Chart. First single “Wedding Ring” received high rotation on Triple M playlists nationally as well as other discerning rock stations around the country!
Gotcha Covered features iconic songs such as Goanna’s “Razor’s Edge”, The Easybeats “Wedding Ring”, Men At Work’s “Overkill” and Dragon’s “Rain”. Every track offers up a rebirthed Australian classic, stamped with the unique sound that is synonymous with The Screaming Jets. Stamped as “The best live band I have ever witnessed…” (Neil Jeffreys Kerrang magazine), The Screaming Jets’ Gotcha Covered – The Tour set will feature a treasure trove of Jets classics including “Better”, “Helping Hand”, “October Grey”, “Shine On” and “C’Mon”, just to name a few, combined with a rotating selection of gems from Gotcha Covered.
Songs from Tear of Thought and All For One and recent Hot Metal Album Of the Year offering Chrome, sit brilliantly alongside Hoodoo Gurus’ “Right Time”, The Angels’ “Shadowboxer” and Radio Birdman’s “Aloha Steve & Dano”. The Radiators’ “Gimme Head” was always destined to be a crowd pleaser and it doesn’t disappoint.
Never a band to be held back by public opinion, The Jets have pulled out some of the their more controversial tunes in the recent live sets…. to rapturous response from the audience. You have been warned! The Screaming Jets will be joined on all dates by Melbourne rockers Palace Of The King, who have been tearing up international stages over the last two years.
