In Melbourne this airs at the special time of 8:30pm Thursday which means Hamish and Andy’s final show will air at 7:30pm (8:30pm H&A/ 9:30 Footy Show in all other states).
One of the most anticipated events of the AFL season comes to life this Thursday night at the special time of 8.30pm when The Grand Final Footy Show broadcasts live on Channel Nine from Rod Laver Arena.
With the country gripped by finals fever heading into Saturday’s Grand Final between Geelong and Collingwood, Garry Lyon, James Brayshaw and Sam Newman serve up the entertainment feast footy fans have been waiting for all season.
Canadian rock outfit Simple Plan will kick off the Grand Final Footy Show in front of a sellout crowd of 12,000 with their worldwide smash, Jetlagged.
Joining them are a host of Aussie rock favourites, including Eskimo Joe belting out their hit single Love is a Drug, Vanessa Amorosi debuting her new song Amazing and Footy Show favourites The Living End. They plan to raise the roof with their new single, Song for the Lonely, plus a specially compiled, one-off performance of classic hits.
The Dulux Grand Final Revue is always a show-stopper and to mark the 18th season of The Footy Show this year’s spectacular promises to be something extra special, with the return of some of the fans’ favourites along with the debut of some big names.
The countdown to the Grand Final will be dissected by two superstar panels including Jonathan Brown, Barry Hall and Nick Dal Santo as they preview the teams and the match-ups and give their all-important tips. Grand Final coaches Mick Malthouse and Chris Scott also join us live.
Plus, in the backstage greenroom we chat to some of the biggest names in football as well as a host of celebrities and musicians – including Shannon Noll. There will also be a special musical performance from Carlton high flyer Andrew Walker.
