Tom Jones and Ed Sheeran.

Let's hope it isn't too sunny. Tom's face will melt and slip off his head while Ed will blister before Tom gets to the bit where he has to dance in Sex Bomb. Very Happy

mainly female contingent going i presume, why not send over that young band Chunky Custard oh hang on they've been around for years as well


oh Mamma Mia, bugger it, they've played at Footy Park & the SCG for starters, so why not get ABBA to perform at the MCG

Read a good article in The Age today that offered a few suggestions of bands/artists currently touring the country that would've been much better. I can't find it now, but from memory the list included:

- The Presets (they would rock the place out, would be my #1 pick for creating some atmosphere)
- Dan Sultan
- Spiderbait (yes please)
- Kingswood (these guys rock)

Internationals Justin Timberlake & Robbie Williams are also touring.

Surely someone along those lines would be better that Tom Jones FFS.

Kingswood are good, but not big enough or well known enough.

Robbie Williams plays in "swing" mode in Sydney the night of and the night after the GF ( the wife and girl friends are there for the Sunday night show )

JT - Could they afford him?

Why not Living End who are about to tour Day on the Green style with Jimmy Barnes?

Plenty of options other than Tom Jones......that's for sure.

He could be nearly as BAD as meatloaf, hope I am wrong but his live performances are can be very ordinary.

Wish we'd just stick to Aussie pre-match entertainment for one of our greatest 'Aussie days' on the calendar.

well i enjoyed the Tom Jones' show, especially when he was talking & calling it ''Australian rules football''......at least Tom Jones knows what the sport is, even if more than half the land doesn't
