Hopes of Elton Playing AFL Grand Final Are Quashed

Written by Chief Editor.

The Herald Sun reports that the Rocket Man has been ruled out of playing the Australian Football League Grand Final.

Last week the musician announced a Victorian show on Sunday October 1, the day after the AFL Grand Final.

AFL boss Gillon McLachlan had said:

“He should do it, there’s not a lot of budget left but we can find some.”

However Elton is already performing in Cairns on Saturday September 30, as part of his Australian tour.

Despite a remote possibility of flying the luminary in and out of Melbourne on a private plane, sources confirm he will definitely not be playing the AFL Grand Final.
