True to character, KISS is kicking off 2014 with something very unique!
The shock-rock icons have signed on for a performance at L.A.’s first-ever outdoor hockey game, which is slated for January 25 at Dodger Stadium.
Part of the 2014 Coors Light NHL Stadium Series, the Los Angeles Kings and the Anaheim Ducks will face off at the match, which will be broadcast live at 6:30pm PT/9:30pm EST on NBCSN in the U.S. and on CBC and RDS2 in Canada, according to the official press release.
“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 LA,” said singer/bassist Gene Simmons in a statement. “Fans can expect a spectacle at Dodgers Stadium, similar to the one we will be creating at the Honda Center this season with our new Arena Football team, LA KISS.”

Meanwhile, KISS is set to be among this year’s inductees for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, alongside artists such as Nirvana, Linda Ronstadt, Daryl Hall and John Oates, Cat Stevens and Peter Gabriel. The event will be held on April 10 at the Barclay Center in Brooklyn, N.Y., and then broadcast on HBO the following month.
