AFL Grand Final entertainment: who will perform?
Birds of Tokyo will perform at halftime with the West Australian Symphony Orchestra, with John Butler and Eskimo Joe headlining the pre-match entertainment, supported by Abbe May, Stella Donnelly, Gina Williams and Guy Ghouse, and Donna Simpson and Vikki Thorn of the Waifs, in what is perhaps the most Perthian group of musicians in history.
Mike Brady will also be in Melbourne to play Up There Cazaly and One Day in September.
Who will present the premier cup of the 2021 AFL Grand Final?
This year’s presentation has a spearhead feel of the ’90s, with Garry Lyon winning Melbourne and Chris Grant winning Western Bulldogs.
Who’s in the 2021 AFL Grand Final?
It’s official: Melbourne qualified for his first AFL Grand Final in 21 years and is looking for his first Prime Minister victory since 1964. The Demons will be joined by the Western Bulldogs, after a very good season for both teams. Although the preliminary finals were lackluster, thanks to Melbourne and the West Bulldogs who completely crushed their opponents.
The Grand Final should be an emotional, high-stakes game. Melbourne fans will mourn the game that should have been played at the MCG, especially against such worthy opponents.
Melbourne captain Max Gawn will be one to watch after scoring five impressive goals against Geelong.
But Bulldogs won’t give in easily, with Marcus Bontempelli, Bayley fritsch, and the spectacular mullet Bailey smith everything is playing particularly well. Melbourne is still the favorite to beat the Bulldogs, but with a few players recently back from injury, they’ll have to give it their all. All the signs point to a classic Grand Final match, not to be missed.
