Bryan Adams will headline this year's Australian Football League (AFL) Grand Final entertainment. The Canadian singer joins American recording artist Chris Isaak and British singer Ellie Goulding for the mega show before the grand finale.

Adams, 55, whose hit songs include “Summer of 69” and “Everything I do,” has been chosen as a performer keeping in mind that fans of all ages will attend the AFL event.

"The grand final attracts football fans across many generations, some of whom come with their families, others of whom come with their friends," AFL's chief executive, Gillon McLachlan said in a statement posted on AFL's official website.

"So with that in mind I can confidently say this year's artists will ensure there's something for everyone,” he added.

British singer and songwriter James Blunt, whose hits include “You Are Beautiful” and “Goodbye My Lover,” is set to perform at the Brownlow Medal ceremony, which is scheduled to be held on Sept. 28, AFL said. However, it is not yet confirmed who will sing the national anthem.

The AFL Grand Final show will come a month before the release of Adams' new album, titled “Get Up.” According to the Idolator, “Get Up” is expected to be released on Oct. 13 by Universal Music. The album will have nine new tracks and four acoustic versions of some of Adams' song from the same album.

“Get Up” will be Adams' first album in seven years, and it holds a great significance for the singer. “It came together quite organically, song by song,” Adams said in a pre-release statement (via Ultimate Classic Rock).

The singer is releasing a single track “Brand New Day” from the album on Sept. 7. The music video of the song features English actress Helena Bonham Carter and Theo Hutchcraft, who is the lead singer of the electronic duo Hurts.
