MOTÖRHEAD's Lemmy Kilmister will do the official coin toss at LA KISS' first-ever home game today (Saturday, April 5) at the Honda Center in Anaheim, California.STEEL PANTHER, widely considered one of the hottest heavy-metal bands out of Hollywood since MÖTLEY CRÜE, GUNS N' ROSES and POISON ruled the Sunset Strip, will play a special halftime performance for tonight's game.
The opening night of LA KISS will serve as STEEL PANTHER's official record release party for their new album, "All You Can Eat". As part of both of these first-ever events, STEEL PANTHER will unveil special performances before the game, at halftime and several times during the game on the new permanent end zone stage that will play home to other top performers throughout the LA KISS season.
Gene Simmons, co-owner of LA KISS, adds his excitement for the opening day performance. "STEEL PANTHER rocks!" said Simmons. "Just ask your girlfriend."
Single-game tickets for the team's first home game are now available and can be purchased via Ticketmaster.com or the Honda Center Box Office. MOTÖRHEAD canceled a handful of shows on its European festival tour in August 2013 after Lemmy suffered a haematoma (where blood collects outside of a blood vessel). The news of Lemmy's latest medical issue followed reports that he was also fitted with a defibrillator because of heart problems. The band also postponed a European headlining tour which was scheduled to kick off in November.
