Fans with tickets to watch the Los Angeles Kings and Anaheim Ducks play outdoors at Dodger Stadium on Jan. 25 will be treated to a special performance from one of the most famous rock bands of all time.
KISS will be the pre-game and first-intermission entertainment, the NHL announced Thursday.
“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 L.A.,” band co-founder Gene Simmons said. “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.”
The concert will add to what promises to be a thrilling game between two of the Western Conference’s fiercest rivals. The Ducks are tied with the Chicago Blackhawks for the best record in the league, and the Kings sit fifth in the conference standings.
The Ducks-Kings matchup at Dodger Stadium will be the first outdoor NHL game ever played in California. It’s also one of five NHL outdoor games this season at venues including Yankee Stadium in New York, Soldier Field in Chicago and BC Place in Vancouver.
