LOS ANGELES, CA – Peanut butter and jelly, and peas and carrots. Some things just belong together, right? Well, this is seemingly not one of those things: the rock band Kiss and football.
“You’ve got to see it to believe it,” said KISS lead singer, Gene Simmons.
Yea, you got that right. It seems KISS is singing a new tune. The band announced their partnership with the Arena Football League, and is bringing football back to Los Angeles.
“You’ll have the time of your life. Once you come to an AFL game, you’ll never go back to the same ol’, same ol’,” Simmons said.
Simmons says that as a “fast-paced, high action band,” KISS’s partnership with the AFL is “an obvious fit.”
We don’t know how obvious it is, but the band is lending their name to the new team.
“We are welcoming our newest member of the Arena Football family, the L.A. KISS,” said Jerry B. Kurz, AFL Commissioner.
Fans who buy season tickets to the LA KISS can also attend a free Kiss concern next year. And get this: season tickets are less than a hundred bucks. Man, a ticket to one Texans game will cost you more than that.
No telling how good the team will be, but one thing’s for sure: the LA KISS will have the snazziest costumes in the league.
