"We couldn’t be happier to welcome them to the ARIA Hall of Fame as the first inductees since 2020."
Jet will be inducted into the ARIA Hall Of Fame this November upon the 20th anniversary of the band’s seminal album, Get Born. You can watch their induction and many more moments of this year’s ARIA Awards on Wednesday, 15 November.
“Throughout their career, Jet has achieved numerous accolades and milestones, including seven ARIA Awards, chart-topping albums, and sold-out tours around the world,” ARIA CEO Annabelle Herd commented in a statement.
“They changed the face of Australian rock music with a culture-shifting album and have been a huge influence for other musicians over their career, and that truly deserves our highest honour. We couldn’t be happier to welcome them to the ARIA Hall of Fame as the first inductees since 2020.”
The last inductee into the ARIA Hall Of Fame was Archie Roach in 2020.
Vocalist Nic Cester said after hearing that Jet would be inducted into the ARIA Hall Of Fame, “We’re all quite chuffed and honoured to be in such esteemed company. We are humbled to receive this recognition.”
For the first time in ARIA history, the award ceremony will be streamed live on the streaming service Stan from 5 pm AEDT. From 7:30 pm, the 2023 ARIA Awards will air on Channel 9 and YouTube. Performances and other moments will be available on the ARIA YouTube channel.
