If you were in massive traffic around Downtown Los Angeles on Sunday, most likely it was all the people heading to see the Los Angeles Dodgers play the Boston Red Sox (which is a rare occurrence in Los Angeles in and of itself), but to hear KISS frontman Paul Stanley sing the national anthem.
Wearing an LA KISS shirt in honor of KISS’ new football team, Stanley did an amazing job at the song–although he was smart and didn’t try to hit any of the high notes.
Thanks to KISS, Los Angeles will have a professional football team again after five years of being without. A free KISS concert will take place at the Honda Center next year for those who buy season tickets now.
The news brings professional football back to Los Angeles after a five year hiatus.
“Season tickets are now on sale for what we know will be some of the most action-packed games ever played at the Honda Center,” said Stanley. “Arena Football is played at a fast and furious pace and making season tickets available now for the budget-friendly price of $99 gives a whole new meaning to bang for the buck.
“As a fast-paced, high-action band this partnership with the AFL was an obvious fit for us,” contributed Gene 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.”
