Confirming many fans’ suspicions, it’s been announced that Sting will take the leading slot in the AFL Grand Final’s pre-game show. He joins previously announced acts The Living End and Vance Joy.

From AFL Chief Executive Officer Gillon McLachlan:

“I’m excited to announce that Sting will feature alongside home-grown acts Vance Joy and The Living End as part of the Virgin Australia Pre-Game Show at this year’s Toyota AFL Grand Final.

Sting is much loved the world over, and we couldn’t be more thrilled that he will join us on the biggest day of our year.

Sting, Vance Joy and The Living End will no doubt entertain fans of all ages for those who see them live at the MCG or during the Seven Network’s broadcast.”
