“Our goal with the NHL Stadium Series games is to give our fans an unforgettable experience,” added NHL executive VP and chief marketing officer Brian Jennings. “Having KISS headline our entertainment lineup is the perfect way to make our celebration of hockey in Southern California even bigger and more memorable.”
With their signature makeup, explosive stage show and anthems like “Rock And Roll All Nite” and “Detroit Rock City”, KISS is the very personification of rock stars. In 2014, the band celebrates the 40th anniversary of the release of their first album, “Kiss”. After four decades of scoring countless hit singles, sold-out tours and appearing everywhere from comic books to lunch boxes to their very own TV movie, the iconic band remains one of the most influential artists in the history of rock and roll. At the top of American bands with the most gold albums, KISS has sold more than 100 million albums worldwide — including their chart-topping 20th studio album, “Monster”, produced by Paul Stanley and released in 2012. In support of that album, the band performed their worldwide “Monster” tour with sold-out-out shows in Australia, Europe, South America, North America and Japan as once again KISS, and their loyal followers in the KISS Army, rocked the globe.
