KISS Will Rock NHL Game At Dodger Stadium
KISS will soon have a date with Rock and Roll immortality. Their induction into the Rock Hall of Fame is set for April but in the meantime the band is joining forces with the NHL.On January 25th as part of the National Hockey League's Stadium Series of special outdoor games, KISS will perform prior to the game and during the first intermission between the Anaheim Ducks against the L.A. Kings.
The event will air live at 9:30 ET on the NBCSN network in the U. S. and on CBC and RDS2 IN Canada.
"Los Angeles is the premier hub for sports and entertainment in this country and we are honored to be part of an event that fuses both by rocking the first-ever outdoor NHL game in L.A.," says KISS singer/bassist Gene Simmons in a statement. "Fans can expect a spectacle at Dodger Stadium."
A limited number of tickets are available at Ticketmaster.com. More performers will be announced soon.
KISS, of course, has close connections with sports in the Los Angeles area. Simmons and singer/guitarist Paul Stanley recently became part owners of a new arena football team called the LA KISS that will begin playing at the Honda Center in Anaheim, California, in the spring.
