2017 AFL Grand Final entertainment, The Killers

Tom Morris,
FOX SPORTS
10 June 29017


LAS Vegas rockers The Killers are set to headline the musical entertainment at this year’s AFL grand final.

Although the league refused to ratify it when contacted on Wednesday, music industry sources have confirmed the American band is locked in for the biggest day on the football calendar.

The Killers won’t play any additional Australian shows.

The band will release its first album since 2012 just 10 days before the AFL’s showcase event on September 30 and have been on the league’s wishlist for some time, with rumours first circulating via 3AW last month that they could be headed Down Under.

Why do they persist with this crap? Who the stuff watches the Grand Final for the bands?
If you disagree with a fanatic, they will automatically assume you are a competing flavor of fanatic.

The non-football types get right around it. It's all about this need to make it a world class event, even though no one north of the border bothers with it, let alone an international audience.

The Killers have been confirmed as the key Grand Final entertainment, with Dami Im to perform the national anthem.

Mike Brady will again feature at the Grand Final to perform Up There Cazaly.
