AFL announce a Killer grand final show

The AFL’s worst kept secret has been confirmed, with American rockers The Killers finally announced to play during the grand final.

It’ll be The Killers first Australian performance in four years and their first time at the AFL’s biggest day of the year.

Foxsports reported The Killers would headline AFL’s most important game two months ago and the sport’s governing body confirmed the details today.


The pre-game entertainment on September 30 will also feature Eurovision finalist Dami Im singing the Australian anthem and Mike Brady performing the footy classic Up There Cazaly.

AFL Chief executive Gill McLachlan said in a statement The Killers would appeal to footy fans of all ages.

“I’m so pleased that The Killers have agreed to play on that one day in September,” he said.

The news has been received well by footy fans, who will forever have the lasting memory of Meatloaf’s shocker performance in 2011.
