The classic rockers of KISS are extending their audience to underwater sharks.
This month, a one-time-only concert event will take place at Australia’s Port Lincoln. The show, dubbed “Shark Rock City,” will see the band perform on a boat at 6:30 a.m. while cruising along the coastline for birds, dolphins, and other wildlife animals. Then, they’ll head out into the deep waters of the Indian Ocean, which is the prime spot for great white sharks to gather. Fans on the glass-bottom boat will be able to see what’s underwater while KISS rocks out above the waves to entice the sharks with low-frequency sounds. The gig, presented in partnership by Animals On Airbnbeperiences and the Australian Marine Conservation Society, is a first for the band.
“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.”
The show, set to take place on October 14, will include at least four songs from the band, Stanley said, although he isn’t sure “how much of us the sharks can take,” noting “I’m hoping they know ‘Rock And Roll All Nite.'”
Fans can purchase tickets via airbnb here, which includes food, drinks, equipment, and transportation to and from the shark site. Read more information about Matt Waller, the local host who will help guests observe the sharks in their natural habitat during the event, here.
