Kiss Played an Australian Concert for Great White Sharks but They Didn't Show Up

Kiss took a trip to the land Down Under to perform a set that's a bit different than their usual arenas and stadiums. Gene Simmons, Tommy Thayer and Eric Singer stood in full costume and makeup on a boat in southern Australia to perform for eight lucky fans and a planned group of great white sharks...but the fish never showed up.

As part of a promotion by Airbnb, the concert was planned to entice sharks using the low-frequency sounds of rock and roll, and the fans on glass-bottomed boats would be able to get a close look.

“I would say it’s one of the most unusual, eclectic things we ever did, that’s for sure,” Singer told Australian TV. Watch the local news segment below.
