Rumours swirling this week that pop superstar Lionel Richie would perform at the AFL Grand Final rematch have proven true.
‘It is a great honour to be invited to perform at such an historic event in Australian football,” Richie said in a statement issued via the AFL yesterday. ”I am incredibly fortunate to have been available for this once-in-a-lifetime experience to share my music with my fans.”
Richie, who has been perorming in Hong Kong this week, will bring his full band and perform at least three songs at the MCG before the game.
After the match, he and the band will again perform in a mini-concert likely to last about 30 minutes at nearby AAMI Park.
Richie is a former guest at the Australian Idol finale at the Sydney Opera House.
No other acts have been revealed by the AFL.
The match will be aired on Seven.
