My guess is he'll play his new Adam Goodes song.

But yeah - Leaps and Bounds, Before Too Long, To Her Door and Dumb Things would be pretty great.

Honestly, as a TV entertainment spectacle, the NRL GF wins out every year.
They even Bring Me The Horizon with their song 'Mantra' as the official theme song for the finals. Instant win for the NRL this year. Bring Me are exactly the style the AFL should be looking to use. Huge pump up music. Get everybody in the mood for a fierce contest.
Instead, the last 2 years we're being subjected to Tonight's Gonna be a Good Night and Dance Monkey.

Paul Kelly is great, importantly he has a great live show too. I hope he's also playing a gig after the game, would be a good way to kick off the night before heading to the Swan Street Liqourland to drink in the cool room.

Always gotta laugh at the name grinspoon
How many parents actually know wtf the band are promoting with that name lol
I had no idea what it meant.

Assumed something to do with heroin.

But...

"The band owes its name to the American professor Lester Grinspoon, who teaches psychiatry at Harvard Medical School. Grinspoon is a marijuna convert: initially he studied cannabis to publish about the dangers, later he became an avid advocate of legalizing marijuana so that it can be prescribed as a medicinal agent."

Well there ya go...

I don’t mind Paul Kelly.

Also have no idea why anyone gives a crap. The event is the Grand Final. It’s AFL - a sport that goes with a ceremony that involves community care types making a banner each week for the team to trip over.

I’d be concerned if the AFL wanted to get some super bowl style headliner for 15 billion dollars. Money might be better invested elsewhere like for example a functional review system.

Anyways I will be committed to being drunk on grand final day. So if for entertainment they decide to pay my mum to sing a selection of hymns through a megaphone for an hour, I won’t be too bothered.

I'd passed it all off as bland as s**t folk music until I saw him at a festival balls deep in acid, it was ******* awesome. His band slays and his songwriting is brilliant. Plus it's great to see an Australian headlining it, instead of some s**thead American who doesn't know or care about our sport.
That’s some good acid.

Tones and I.....i had a listen to that dance monkey song on YouTube just to see what we're in for. I can't believe how terrible it is. If you like that crap I don't know what to say really.
Agreed, glad my team isn’t in the grand final (still wish we were though) to hear that shit.

Its a deadset embarassment to have Paul Kelly play. Anything to save a buck

Kiss is in town, get them to come ffs.

Why do racing cars in Newcastle outdo the AFL Grand Final in the entertainment stakes?

It just makes the sport look very amateurish

This thread is a joke. Bunch of people telling a bunch of other people how to go about liking music....:rolleyes:
Not about that entirely. This is about Gil trying to save a buck at the expense of the fans so he can earn a bigger bonus at years end. You are kidding if you think its for any other reason
