KISS will put on a very unique show later this month when they head to Australia to play a rock concert for great white sharks.
After 50 years, you'd think KISS would be finished with their touring days. But no, they're currently on their final "End of the Road" world tour and will next play at the RAC Arena in Perth, Washington.
But after that, KISS will head down under to play several shows around Australia in November, and their first Australian show will be exceptionally unique. They'll play a short concert of at least four songs to great white sharks.
The concert is part of a promo put on by Airbnb and the Australian Marine Conservation Society. The idea here is for humans to entertain animals instead of it being the other way around.
Which begs the question: can sharks be entertained by rock music? It turns out they can.
“I was a little taken aback by it, but they explained that sharks are attracted to low frequencies and so they’re attracted to rock ‘n’ roll,” singer and guitarist Paul Stanley told The Associated Press. “Since we’re going to be in Australia, it gives a whole new meaning to doing a concert down under.”
But it won't just be for sharks. Eight lucky fans will also get to experience the underwater concert thanks to a small submersible that will set off at the same time as the band. KISS will play in full makeup and costume on one boat with speakers placed underwater, while the eight fans will be in a different boat that will submerge and be surrounded by sharks soon after the music starts playing.
Best of all, tickets to this underwater concert are going for just $50 USD. That's a fraction of the price you'd pay for any KISS concert tickets anywhere else in the world.
All proceeds will be given to charity, according to Airbnb, with ticket sales starting on Oct 14th at 6 PM EST. Expect them to sell out pretty quick since there are only 8 tickets available.
