Triple M music reporter Nui Te Koha has said that Bruce Springsteen is locked in to play the AFL Grand Final this year. Speaking with the Hot Breakfast show, Nui Te Koha said:
The word is, promoter Michael Gudinski has got Bruce Springsteen wrapped up.
In 2011 Meatloaf received criticism for his performance at the event and Eddie Mcguire promised there would be changes to the entertainment in 2012, saying:
You can take it to the bank that instead of pre-match it will be a halftime show and the stage where it’s been in the stand is gone as well. That will come back out into the middle
In November 2011 a number of Australian tour dates were leaked on a Bruce Springsteen fan page. The leaked dates would see him wrap up his Australian tour in Sydney on September 6th, meaning he would have to hang around a few weeks to play the AFL grand final. However, some slight adjustments with the leaked tour dates would mean a perfect fit to wrap up the tour at the AFL Grand Final on September 29th.
