KISS will perform for a new audience next month: great white sharks. The rock band is scheduled to play literally “down under” to the sharks — along with eight lucky fans — during a concert in Australia on November 18th. After KISS and their fans travel aboard separate boats off the coast of southern Australia, the band will stay above board on one vessel, and the fans will be lowered beneath the surface of the water from a second boat into the viewing sub in an area known for shark activity.
The band, using underwater speakers, will begin to play, and the sound will be audible to the submerged fans and the sharks. The performance is part of a promotion by Airbnb Animal Experience, designed to have people entertain animals instead of having animals entertain humans. The event costs $50 and proceeds will go to charity. KISS will be in full makeup and costumes for the set, which will be at least four songs.
