‘NFL Films Presents: LA KISS’ Premieres Tuesday, Sept. 23rd, at 7:30 PM ET on Fox Sports 1
You wanted the best, you got the best! The NFL Films tradition of covering rock ‘n roll continues on Tuesday 9/23 as we present our first short film exclusively on KISS! We’ve shot the masked quartet during their Super Bowl XXXIII performance, and again when Gene Simmons sang the National Anthem at the 2013 NFL International Series game between the Vikings and Steelers in London. But this week you’ll see KISS on and off stage during their 40th anniversary tour, and get an inside look at how “the hottest band in the world” brought professional football back to Los Angeles through their ownership of the expansion LA KISS Arena Football League team. Tune in to see the fire and fury of the LA KISS in their inaugural season of action, as captured in classic NFL Films style.
“We wanted a sporting event to be more than just a competition.” – Paul Stanley
“Why not give them KISS, crossed with football?” – Gene Simmons
