    ‘Is it 2014?’ Viewers slam Brisbane band Sheppard performing at State of Origin – with some joking they have a ‘monopoly’ on footy entertainment

    Sheppard are a popular entertainment choice for football grand finals. 

    But it appears the Brisbane band, best known for their 2014 hit song, Geronimo, may have finally outstayed their welcome. 

    The group performed at the opening of Game 2 of the 2021 State of Origin at Suncorp Stadium in Brisbane on Sunday night. 

    Over it? Sheppard (pictured) are a popular entertainment choice for football grand finals. But it appears the Brisbane band, best known for their 2014 hit song, Geronimo, may have finally outstayed their welcome
