Two of the biggest names in Australian rock, Jet and The Living End, will perform to a bumper post-race crowd on Saturday 2 March at the Superloop Adelaide 500, rounding out a sensational music line-up for the 2019 event.

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.

“Motorsport and music fans are spoilt for choice this year and we’re delighted to be welcoming Australian rock royalty Jet and the Living End on stage to entertain crowds on the Saturday night,’’ said Minister for Trade, Tourism and Investment, David Ridgway.

“With 13 ARIA Awards between them, they complete an already impressive line-up of entertainment across the event.”

Jet front man, 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 the latest big names to be added to the enviable line-up 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 in style, 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.

Meanwhile, this year, the concert stage will relocate closer to the action, creating a dynamic space for motorsport fans and concert goers alike.

Previously located at the Christian Brothers College Oval, the precinct will now be situated in front of the Victoria Park Heritage Grandstand, creating a central hub with access to a myriad of family-friendly activities and a premium food and beverage offering.

The Superloop Adelaide 500 will take place 28 February – 3 March, 2019.
