Kiss and Robbie - icons. Still selling out concerts around the world.

Tina Turner is also great - I think a tribute to her is a great idea - and I thi k it will be a good show no doubt - I think night time shows look better. I don’t know if I would have gone with it for the whole thing though. Should be good. L but hardly in the league of KISS. I think the afl should have gotten ACDC - that would hand been awesome.

Anyway - settling in for tonight’s game - should be good. Hoping Brisbane win but think Penrith may have it. Let’s hope it’s as good a game as the AFL granny.

Tina Turner tribute act at NRL Grand Final widely slammed by fans
The NRL’s decision to go with a tribute act for its pre-game Grand Final entertainment has gone down like a lead balloon with fans.

The AFL had American rock band KISS, the NRL had Tina Turner … the musical.
Thirty years after she stole the limelight at the 1993 Grand Final, the NRL turned back time with a tribute act to headline the pre-game entertainment.

But fans watching on couldn’t quite believe what they were witnessing as criticism came in for the league’s decision to have a tribute act as the headline for the pre-game show.
Fans slammed every aspect of the pre-game entertainment from the fake Tina wig to the fact the league couldn’t stump up anything better than a tribute act.

One user wrote: “The AFL had Kiss and the NRL has a Tina Turner tribute band.”
Another added: “That hair (wig?) is absolutely criminal. For a Tina Turner impersonator, they should have done a better job!”
A third wrote: “Is this an NRL grand final or a Tina Turner funeral?””

The AFL Grand Final entertainment featuring rock icons KISS is now seen as one of the best ever.
The overall production, performance and music makes for spectacular prelude to the Grand Final. It's gonna be a hard act to follow., nobody can top that.
Bring back the Bears.
