There are rumours swirling around that Pearl Jam are at the top of the NRL‘s wish list for this year’s Grand Final extravaganza.
Fox Sports reckons that code is trying to snag the grunge rock giants for the Big Decider on 1st October, with a spokesperson for the League saying they’re “close to confirming” this year’s headline act.
Homegrown guitar-slinger Keith Urban of course did the honours at last year’s season-ending blockbuster, which saw the Cronulla Sharks down the Melbourne Storm in a 14-12 nail-biter in front of a crowd of almost 84,000, so it’ll be interesting to see the reaction from fans if the code does go for an international act like Eddie Vedder & co. for this year’s bash.
We doubt there’d be many complaints though. Pearl Jam are the shit.
