Grand Final Eve Concert

Birds of Tokyo


Renowned Australian musicians, Birds of Tokyo, will headline the entertainment for this year’s AFL Grand Final Eve Concert on Friday September 27 at Yarra Park as part of the 2019 Footy Festival.

Following the conclusion of the Toyota AFL Grand Final Parade, the popular Aussie rockers will kick off a free concert to the thousands of fans who are celebrating on the day.

Formed in Perth in 2004, Birds of Tokyo have grown from independent roots to become one of Australia’s most popular contemporary rock bands. Songs like 'Plans’, ‘Lanterns’, ‘This Fire’, ‘Anchor’ and ‘I’d Go With You Anywhere’ have all been top 10 airplay hits and have led to appearances at every major festival across the country.
