From the unlikely pairing of Airbnb and the Australian Marine Conservation Society comes a new experience that no one expected: Kiss will make a special stop on their current final world tour to bring their raucous antics to the country's coastline — where they'll be playing the first-ever rock & roll show for great white sharks. Apparently the toothy, metal-as-hell, sea beasts are huge fans of the genre's low, rumbling frequencies.
"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 Paul Stanley told the Associated Press. "I'm not sure how much of us the sharks can take. I'm hoping they know 'Rock and Roll All Nite.'"
On November 18th in Port Lincoln in South Australia, guests will board a boat and cruise the coast looking for signs of wildlife including birds and dolphins, according to Airbnb's official event page. Once that's done, the ship will take a turn for deeper Indian Ocean waters, a feeding ground for the sharks.
This is where Kiss come into play: As they plug in and begin to play above board, a glass floor will allow guests to peer into the great beyond and potentially catch the eye of a great white as they're inevitably hypnotized by the gods of thunder as they tempt the man-eating fish to rock & roll well into the night (or at least until feeding time).
While it does sound like an overall pretty goofy experience, Airbnb promises that "100% of what you pay goes directly to the nonprofit organization." Those very reasonably priced $50 dollar tickets go on sale October 14th for any parties willing to make the journey (first come, first serve) and will also include breakfast, lunch, snacks, soft drinks, transportation to and from the boat, and diving gear for those looking to get into the water before the deep-sea excursion.
