The Herald Sun reports that the Rocket Man has been ruled out of playing the Australian Football League Grand Final.
Last week the musician announced a Victorian show on Sunday October 1, the day after the AFL Grand Final.
AFL boss Gillon McLachlan had said:
“He should do it, there’s not a lot of budget left but we can find some.”
However Elton is already performing in Cairns on Saturday September 30, as part of his Australian tour.
Despite a remote possibility of flying the luminary in and out of Melbourne on a private plane, sources confirm he will definitely not be playing the AFL Grand Final.
