Legendary rock band KISS will perform during the pre-game festivities and first intermission of the 2014 Coors Light Stadium Series outdoor game between the Los Angeles Kings and the Anaheim Ducks on Jan. 25 at Dodger Stadium.

Rock icon KISS will perform at the 2014 Stadium Series outdoor game featuring the Los Angeles Kings and Anaheim Ducks on Jan. 25. 

NHL.com offered more details in its Jan. 2 update:

"Legendary American rock band KISS will bring down the house at Dodger Stadium as part of the 2014 Coors Light NHL Stadium Series outdoor game between the Los Angeles Kings and Anaheim Ducks on Jan. 25, the National Hockey League announced today. 

"Paul Stanley, Gene Simmons, Tommy Thayer and Eric Singer will perform during the pre-game festivities and first intermission of the game, which will be broadcast live at 6:30 p.m. ET on NBCSN in the U.S. and on CBC and RDS2 in Canada." 

Simmons told NHL.com fans "can expect a spectacle" when the band takes the stage on that day. 

"Los Angeles is the premier hub for sports and entertainment in this country and we are honored to be part of an event that fuses both by rocking the first-ever outdoor NHL game in L.A. 

"Fans can expect a spectacle at Dodger Stadium, similar to the one we will be creating at the Honda Center this season with our new Arena Football team, L.A. KISS."

A week before news of KISS performing at the event broke out, The Los Angeles Times' Lisa Dillman reported ticket prices are going down "from $249 to either $189 or $199," citing Kings spokesman Mike Altieri.  

Dillman emphasizes the $249 price tag resulted in fans becoming unhappy; hence, the adjustment. She also points out it's the NHL which sets the prices and not the Kings or Ducks.

Back in November 2013, Kings captain Dustin Brown raved about Dodger Stadium being the setting of the outdoor game and the rivalry between the two Southern California teams' fan bases.  

"I think it will be pretty cool because Dodger Stadium is a very unique stadium in how it's built and the setting. And you've got the backdrop, and it's built into the mountain. 

"But the big rivalry I think is the fan base. You got the diehard fans for the Kings and it's black or white in that area. It's either you're one or the other; there's no fan that's like,'Well, I kind of like both teams. It's either Ducks or Kings. And that's where I think it's very unique."  

What will also make the game unique is the presence of KISS, a band which has sold more than 100 million albums worldwide and is celebrating its 40th anniversary in 2014.
