To be honest, we’re still kind of getting over the news that Red Hot Chili Peppers are coming to town for this year’s Adelaide 500 – and now there are two more big names added to the lineup.
Announced this morning, two of the biggest names in Aussie rock, Jet and The Living End, will perform to the post-race crowd on Saturday March 2.
Jet, who have sold more than 6.5 million albums since 2001, have received huge accolades for their live performances since regrouping in 2016, while The Living End is one of Australia’s most celebrated punk rock groups.
Jet frontman, Nic Cester, said the band was excited to return to Adelaide for a special one-off performance for fans at the Supercars event.
“The opportunity to perform at the Superloop Adelaide 500 is one we couldn’t refuse! We are excited to be heading back to Adelaide to soak up the atmosphere and rev up the crowd,” he said.
The Living End, who rose to fame in 1997 after the release of their double A-sided single Second Solution/Prisoner of Society, kicked off a national tour late last year following the release of their eighth studio album, Wunderbar.
Lead vocalist, Chris Cheney, described the new album as straightforward, heart-pounding, guns blazing rock and roll.
“We can’t wait to bring the Wunderbar Tour to Adelaide for fans at the Superloop Adelaide 500,” he said.
“It’s great to be back on stage – we are having the time of our lives and hope the crowd enjoy it as much as we do.”
Jet and The Living End are just the latest names to be added to the lineup of music acts on stage at the 2019 Superloop Adelaide 500.
American rock legends Red Hot Chili Peppers will headline Sunday night’s post-race concert to close out the four-day event, with Vance Joy and Amy Shark set to take to the stage on Friday.
All three nights will feature Bands on Track to open the set as part of the celebrated collaboration between Music SA and the Superloop Adelaide 500, which supports up and coming local musicians.
And this year, the concert stage is relocating closer to the action. Previously located at the Christian Brothers College Oval, the precinct will now sit in front of the Victoria Park Heritage Grandstand, creating a central hub with access to family-friendly activities and plenty of food and drinks.
The Superloop Adelaide 500 is on February 28 – March 3. Tickets are one sale now at superloopadl500.com.au.
