KISS set to rock AFL Grand Final

The band has sold more than 100 million albums worldwide.

The AFL has announced that the international rock ‘n’ roll band KISS will headline the pre-game entertainment at the 2023 Toyota AFL Grand Final.

This decision came after Australian-New Zealand rock band Crowded House withdrew from the sporting event last week.

Telstra’s Head of Media and Sponsorship, Genelle Sharples, was delighted with the decision to have KISS set to perform at one of Australia’s biggest sporting events.

“It’s an honour to host the Telstra Pre-Game Entertainment and we’re delighted to be bringing KISS to the MCG to celebrate one of the biggest days on the sporting calendar,” she said.

“Telstra has been a proud partner of the AFL for 21 years and together, we’re passionate about creating memorable experiences for the fans. We have no doubt KISS will do just that.”

KISS have been performing since 1973, selling more than 100 million albums worldwide.

The American rock band KISS have featured at many high-profile events including the Super Bowl and the Winter Olympics.

The band expressed how thrilled they are to perform on the AFL’s biggest day of the year as part of their global “End of the World” tour.

“We cannot wait to create rock ‘n’ roll history playing at the iconic MCG in Melbourne for one last time,” they said.

“We’re absolutely thrilled to be performing in front of 100,000 footy fans at the biggest and best sporting event in the country! Be ready to ROCK as we’ll be coming full throttle into the ‘G.”

The AFL is set to confirm additional performers for the 2023 Toyota AFL Grand Final in the coming weeks.
