Veteran rock band KISS announced yesterday that they will be launching a new Arena Football expansion team called LA KISS that will be based out of Los Angeles country's neighboring county, Orange County, Ca. and KISS will be performing the half-time show during the league's televised championship game this weekend.
The new team will be based at the Honda Center in Anaheim, home of the Anaheim Ducks, and the band announced that inaugural season ticket holders will be invited to a "free" KISS concert that will take place at the venue next year.
KISS co-founder Gene Simmons explains why the band decided to launch the team in his usual Gene Simmons fashion, "As a fast-paced, high-action band this partnership with the AFL was an obvious fit for us," said Simmons.
"With Arena Football, you are much closer to the action - sitting in the front row is like putting a folding chair on the hash mark of an NFL game – and it's one of the only sports where you can experience this level of intensity. Attending an LA KISS game in 2014 will be similar to a live KISS show, with thrilling, heart pounding action."
Fans will be able to tune in to CBS this Saturday, August 17th for the ArenaBowl XXVI Championship game that will feature KISS performing on their new spider stage during the half-time show.
The game will be kicking off at 1pm EST / 10am PST on CBS.
