The event will take place on Saturday, January 25th as Dustin Brown and the Los Angeles Kings take on Ryan Getzlaf and the Anaheim Ducks. This is one of five outdoor games that will be played this season. The first was the 2014 Bridgestone Winter Classic that took place on New Year’s Day.
Throughout the years, the name KISS has become synonymous with the words Rock & Roll. At the Los Angeles Stadium Series, band members Gene Simmons, Paul Stanley, Eric Singer, and Tommy Thayer will perform some of their biggest hits.
Simmons told NHL.com about his excitement to be participating in such an event as well as giving fans an idea what they can expect when KISS takes the stage.
“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 Gene Simmons. “Fans can expect a spectacle at Dodger Stadium, similar to the one we will be creating at the Honda Center this season with our new Arena Football team, LA KISS.”
KISS will perform during the pre-game festivities as well as at the first intermission of the game. The event will be broadcast live at 9:30 p.m. EST on the NBC Sports Network in the United States and CBC and RDS2 in Canada. This is not the last big announcement that the NHL has in store for you. Over the next couple of weeks the NHL will be announcing a full lineup of performers and game day festivities for the event at Dodger Stadium. One could imagine that you will see similar announcements regarding the other games in the Stadium Series as the dates start approaching. Stay tuned for all the details.
