According to the NFLUK website, KISS co-founder and the God of Thunder himself, Gene Simmons, will perform the United States National Anthem prior to the Pittsburgh Steelers game against the Minnesota Vikings at London’s Wembley Stadium on Sunday September 29.
“I’m excited to be touching down in London to sing our US National Anthem at the Vikings-Steelers game,” the website quoted Simmons as saying. “I always love playing a role in these types of high-action, fast-paced games, not to mention returning to the UK and performing in front of some the best fans in the world!”
This will not be the first time that Simmons has performed the National Anthem prior to an NFL game, however, as he also sang it last year prior to the kickoff of the Monday Night Football game between the San Diego Chargers and the Oakland Raiders.
Simmons, 64, is now a professional football owner himself as he was recently announced as the co-owner of the Los Angeles Kiss, an indoor football team scheduled to begin playing in the Arena Football League in 2014.
This news is proof that Jesus loves Steelers fans, or at least me.
