US group Black Eyed Peas and Aussie legend Jimmy Barnes have been confirmed as the AFL grand final entertainment this month.

The AFL have confirmed that the acts will perform before the game at the MCG on 29 September.

"We are honoured to be heading to Melbourne to perform at the AFL Grand Final day," Black Eyed Peas said in a statement.

"This is the biggest day in Australian sport, so we will be pulling out all the stops for this special performance." 

The news comes after the hip hop trio yesterday announced their new album, Masters Of The Sun, will drop on 12 October; their first record since 2010's multi-million selling The Beginning.

"I'm looking forward to singing at one of the world's greatest sporting events," Barnes said.

"It's going to be a huge day on the ground at the MCG. It doesn't get bigger than this, 100,000 passionate football fans and rock 'n roll will be a great mix."
