Jumping the shark? Kiss will play for them in the ocean - 47abc

Next month, the band will play for an undersea audience of sharks and eight fans who are submerged underwater off the coast of Australia, according to the Associated Press. The initiative has been developed in conjunction with Dr Chapman, as well as Airbnb host Matt Waller, who with his crew, has been "helping people have meaningful - and memorable - experiences with great whites" in their natural habitat.

He says sharks are attracted to low frequency vibrations, making rock "n" roll an ideal choice to interest them.

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

Online accommodations platform Airbnb has orchestrated a very unusual experience for mid-November: a rock concert given in the Indian Ocean meant to attract great white sharks, and it's none other than the group Kiss who will perform for a few guests and some members of the world's largest predatory fish species.

Underwater concerts are not new. The concert is a unique experience offered through Airbnb Animal Experiences, which aims to provide entertainment by humans for animals, rather than vice versa - and in this case, that means great white sharks.

Twitter removes Trump tweet of doctored Nickelback video aimed at Biden

"Since we're going to be in Australia, it gives a whole new meaning to doing a concert Down Under". Life is better with animals, but for many busy people, looking at them through a screen is the closest they can get.

The organization has also worked to protect "critical ocean ecosystems with marine reserves around the nation, including Ningaloo and the Great Barrier Reef", as well as to end such practices as whaling and shark finning.

All proceeds from the event will go to the Australian Marine Conservation Society. Tickets go on sale at 6 p.m. EDT on October 14.
