Performing at the MCG before the big game — in which (WARNING: ORIGIN SPOILERS) New South Wales Blues beat Queensland (for once) — Peking Duk’s Adam Hyde and Reuben Styles knocked out two of their biggest hits.
While there was only a small crowd in front of the stage — which is typical for these kind of performances — the Duk’s show did feature a cameo from singer Michaela Baranov on the track ‘Stranger’, and a (probably unnecessary) flaming guitar.
Some viewers were confused by the Duk’s appearance, or didn’t think Origin was the best place for the duo…

Legit, Peking Duk are the worst non-Carlton performers on the MCG this year by a long way. #origin

That said, there were still some positive reactions to the performance:
Yes! @pekingduk destroyed!
