Fans slam the AFL for hiring ageing rockers KISS to play at the grand final after Crowded House...
Gene Simmons and the rest of legendary rock band KISS have been officially announced as this year's AFL grand final entertainment, but some footy fans have slammed the move as they brace for a repeat of the 2011 Meatloaf disaster.
The AFL confirmed KISS will play the year's biggest game as part of their global End of the Roadfarewell tour after Kiwi icons Crowded House withdrew from the showpiece sporting event.
Formed in 1973, KISS is an iconic Detroit band celebrated for their distinctive makeup and extravagant stage performances.
Their chart-topping hits, including Rock and Roll All Nite and Detroit Rock City, propelled them to become one of the best-selling acts in music history, amassing over 100million record sales across 44 albums globally.
KISS's enduring impact on the rock music landscape and their larger-than-life image have firmly established them as rock and roll legends.
While many AFL fans are happy to see them playing at the biggest day in the sport with one posting 'Much better than some unknown Australian band'; others feel the American rockers' best days are behind them.
