Robbie Williams grand final, league talks, pop superstar, halftime show, pregame, multimillion dollar deal, latest

The AFL is reportedly in talks with British pop megastar Robbie Williams for its 2022 grand finale. Herald of the Sun.

While there is no official word yet, reports say the league has been in talks with Williams about a multi-million dollar deal for either the pre-match or halftime show on September 24 as the final say returns to the MCG.

He has sold over 75 million albums worldwide, including the popular songs “Rock DJ”, “Feel” and “Let Me Entertain You”, and is set to release another album “Angels (XXV)” in September.

Williams was reportedly in Melbourne last week for a farewell dinner in honor of retiring OAM CEO Greg O’Neill, who was spotted at Southbank last Friday. It is unclear if he spoke to AFL officials during his time in the country.

If a deal goes through, an announcement is expected to be made in the coming weeks.

This is because the Grand Final will return to its traditional afternoon timeslot after being played at dusk during at least two Covid-affected seasons, with the deciders played in Brisbane and Perth respectively.

Abbe May, John Butler Trio and Baker Boy headlined the 2021 grand finale, while 2020 featured DMA, Sheppard, Cub Sport and Wolfmother.
