AFL Footy Show: grand final edition


The annual AFL Footy Show Grand Final edition takes place on Thursday with guests The Living End, The Veronicas and Bernard Fanning.

Once again some of AFL‘s biggest names will frock up for the Player Revue. You have been warned.

This year the event kicks off even earlier at 7:30pm in Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth.

The Living End, who have been at the forefront of the local music scene for more than 20 years, will perform their latest hit, Keep on Running, as well as their monster smash, the 2009 Song of the Year, White Noise.

Identical twin sisters Lisa and Jessica Origliasso, better known as The Veronicas, will wow a huge crowd and a mammoth TV audience with their No. 1 single, the platinum-selling anthem, In My Blood.

And Bernard Fanning, lead singer with rock legends Powderfinger, will treat audiences to his latest solo single, Wasting Time.

Footy Show hosts James Brayshaw and Rebecca Maddern will present the most anticipated Aussie Rules program of the year in front of 12,000 diehard fanatics from Melbourne’s Rod Laver Arena.

Joining the three-hour extravaganza will be the two, as yet undetermined, coaches of this year’s Grand Final teams.

The infamous Grand Final Revue will feature a tribute to two of the biggest names in entertainment who sadly passed away this year. Expect to see more involvement in this year’s Revue from Sam Newman, Billy Brownless and Shane Crawford. After stealing the show in last year’s Revue, Collingwood’s Travis Varcoe returns to give it another shot. Plus Brownlow Medallist Adam Cooney and Fremantle’s Michael Walters will take to the stage. And the question everyone wants to know – will Rebecca Maddern go through with her performance of Salt-n-Pepa’s Push It?

This year’s Grand Final Footy Show panel will feature Dane Swan, Tex Walker and four-time Premiership player, Luke Hodge.

Plus we’ll take a look back at some of the biggest Footy Show moments from 2016.

7:30pm Friday on Nine in Melb / Ade / Per (11:30pm Syd / Bris).
