The Screaming Jets + Boom Crash Opera

The Screaming Jets proudly announce a national tour with rock contemporaries and special guests, Boom Crash Opera. These two Australian Radio favourites team up to deliver a powerhouse of high rotation hits in what is sure to be one of the rock events of the year!

2017 was a huge year for The Screaming

Jets with two solo laps of the country off the back of their “Chrome” album success, culminating in the They Who Rock tour with the Baby Animals. With 12 sold out shows across the country, punters proved that radio rock is still alive and proud in this country.

For over 25 years, The Screaming Jets have enjoyed high rotation for their songs on National Commercial Radio including: ‘Helping Hand’, ‘Shivers’, ‘Shine On’ ‘Stop The World’ ‘October Grey’ ‘Eve Of Destruction’, ‘Sad Song’, ‘Friend of Mine’ ‘Cash In Your Ticket’ & ‘Automatic Cowboy’.

With a revitalized line up of Dave Gleeson (vocals/worldly opinions), Paul Woseen (bass), Jimi Hocking (guitar), Scott Kingman (guitar) and new drummer Mark McLeod pounding the skins, the Jets are in fine form approaching their 30th anniversary in 2019.

Boom Crash Opera’s hits span a similar history to the Jets, starting in the late 1980’s with ‘Onion Skin’, ‘Dancing in The Storm’, ‘Great Wall’, ‘Hands Up In The Air’, ‘Get Out Of The House’, ‘The Best Thing’, ‘Gimme’, ‘Bettadaze’ and ‘Talk About It’. In the words of Rob Ryan from acrosstheocean.com.au “Boom Crash Opera’s bankable discography is a real treasure trove of greatness” and “It isn’t until you see this band that you realize how many great songs they have in the armoury.”

Boom Crash Opera’s current line-up of Andrew De Silva (vocals), Peter “Bungie” Farnan (guitar/vocals), Peter “Maz” Maslen (drums/vocals) & John Favaro (bass) (keyboards/guitar) continues to reinforce their legendary live reputation from their early roots in the late 1980’s to present day.

The ROCK RADIO RIOT tour will be the only chance to see The Screaming Jets and Boom Crash Opera sharing the stage in the great pub rock venues of Australia. They will be playing all their greatest hits from the late 1980’s and early 1990’s as well as new material and some other Aussie classic rock staples revitalized by the Jets.
