Atlantic City - Having played almost every corner of the Earth in a almost 50-year career, the rock band Kiss is taking its show to a new place _ under the sea, where they will perform for great white sharks and eight fans separated from them by a small submarine.

"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 and guitarist Stanley said.

Other cute travel opportunities as part of the new Airbnb Animal Experiences includes kayaking with Corgis in Florida, having afternoon tea with "naughty" sheep in Scotland, horse whispering in Spain and drinking beer with rescue dogs in Seattle.


KISS, pictured here performing in Oslo, Norway, in June, is scheduled to perform underwater in Australia in November. The finned fans will experience the concert through underwater speakers. The special concert is just one of many Animal Experiences recently launched by Airbnb. "And now with KISS, we're taking it to a whole new level - humans will be entertaining the sharks, not the other way around".

The Nov. 18 event will be held in the Indian ocean off Port Lincoln in south Australia. All proceeds will go to the Australian Marine Conservation Society, according to the event's website.

"I'm not sure how much of us the sharks can take", Stanley said. To book "KISS at Sea with Great White Sharks" visit www.airbnb.com/kiss on Monday October 14, 6pm ET.


"I'm hoping they know Rock And Roll All Nite". The intention is to give people a deeper understanding of animals so that they, in turn, can become animal advocates. KISS has been featured in major advertising and marketing campaigns for John Varvatos, Google Play, Hello Kitty- even appearing in a Dr. Pepper Super Bowl commercial and advertising campaign in support of their Hottest Show On Earth tour.

All experiences will follow a progressive new animal welfare policy, created in conjunction with World Animal Protection, that includes no contact with wild animals and no animals used in entertainment.
