Top-secret AFL Grand Final support acts have been leaked after it was revealed Robbie Williams will be officiating halftime entertainment at the MCG
G Flip, Temper Trap, Goanna and footy anthem troubadour Mike Brady will support Robbie Williams at the AFL Grand Final, The Herald Sun reported.
The British icon confirmed he will perform at Melbourne Cricket Ground’s halftime show this year after AFL’s executive general manager Kylie Rogers told him he was the “greatest performer alive”.
An AFL spokesman said the full lineup would be announced shortly.

“We’re working on the final pieces from an amazing Aussie cast as we return to the MCG and 100,000 fans for the first time in two years,” they told the publication
It is unknown if any of the support acts will appear in Robbie’s band or appear separately.
It was revealed last week that it was a simple comment that changed the former Take That star’s mind about accepting the gig after turning it down for nearly a decade.

The English singer-songwriter, 48, was convinced after receiving a huge compliment from Kylie Rogers, the AFL’s executive general manager.
“You are the best player in the world and we are the best game. We should do something together,” Rogers reportedly said to the star backstage after “A Night Out with Robbie” at Rod Laver Arena in May, The Herald Sun reported.
That sparked a discussion that led to the pop star eventually taking the job.
