Kiss are taking their live show to depths even they haven't explored before with an announcement on Thursday that they'll perform an underwater concert off the coast of Port Lincoln, South Australia, for eight "lucky" fans — and a group of great whites.

The bizarre stunt will take the rockers literally down under as part of a promotion for Airbnb's new Animal Experiences travel option.

Kiss and their crew will travel on Nov. 18 in separate boats off the coast of southern Australia, and while the band stays above board on one vessel, the accompanying fans will be lowered beneath the surface of the water from a second boat into a viewing submarine in an area known for shark activity, according to the Associated Press.

Eddie Van Halen traveling to Germany to treat throat cancer

  Eddie Van Halen traveling to Germany to treat throat cancer You won't believe how Eddie Van Halen thinks he got cancer.TMZ reported on Sunday that the rocker believes he developed the cancer from a metal guitar pick that he used more than 20 years ago. Eddie would supposedly cradle the pick in his mouth, and doctors have told him that could have been the source of the cancer. Eddie was also a heavy smoker for years.

Blasting from underwater speakers, Kiss hits like "Hotter Than Hell" will also be enjoyed by the largest predators in the ocean. Kiss will be in full makeup and costumes for the concert, which will be at least four songs.

"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 Paul Stanley told the AP. "Since we're going to be in Australia, it gives a whole new meaning to doing a concert down under.

"I'm not sure how much of us the sharks can take," Stanley added. "I'm hoping they know 'Rock And Roll All Nite.'"

"Welcome to "Shark Rock City," where KISS will perform a live set off the southern coast of Australia to entice sharks, who love the low-frequency sounds of rock and roll.

This once-in-a-lifetime ocean concert takes place on November 18, 2019, in Port Lincoln, where you'll board a boat at 6:30 a.m. and cruise along the coastline looking for birds, dolphins, and other wildlife. For the main event, you'll head out to the deep waters of the Indian Ocean–one of the biggest feeding grounds for great whites.

As KISS rocks out above water, you'll also get to see what's down under it. Watch from a glass bottom boat as the music attracts the legendary band's biggest (underwater) fans. KISS has played plenty of wild shows in the past, but this one will top them all."

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.

This wiggly robotic fish could be used as an underwater spy

  This wiggly robotic fish could be used as an underwater spy The creation of Tunabot was led by a team from the University of Virginia, and the wiggly little guy could help us learn more about the mechanics of fish movement. If all goes well, Tunabots could also be used for things like underwater surveillance. require(["medianetNativeAdOnArticle"], function (medianetNativeAdOnArticle) { medianetNativeAdOnArticle.getMedianetNativeAds(true); }); Look at Tunabot go! Lead researcher Hilary Bart-Smith and her team chose to model their robotic fish after tuna and mackerels because both fish types, under the same family of Scombridae, are fast and efficient swimmers.

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.
