The announcement was made today as the band launched their new album Cosmic Egg, scheduled for release on October 9. Their new single New Moon Rising hits the airwaves this Friday, August 14.
“We’re excited to have an internationally-acclaimed Australian band like Wolfmother as part of our Grand Final celebrations,” NRL Director, Marketing and Commercial, Paul Kind, said.
“We believe Wolfmother are a great fit for our Rugby League audience and every fan who attends the Grand Final will certainly enjoy their performance.
“We will be unveiling the rest of our Grand Final entertainment program in the coming weeks.”
Wolfmother’s self-titled debut album sold more than 1.4 million copies worldwide and in 2007 they won a Grammy for best hard rock performance award for their song Woman.
While tickets for Wolfmother’s six Australian gigs are on sale now, tickets for the 2009 NRL Telstra Premiership Grand Final will go on sale to the general public on Thursday, August 13, at 9am.
