MORE THAN A ROCK BAND, IS A BRAND
The Marketing of Rock 'N Roll - Part One Radio Special - Under The Influence with Terry O'Reilly.

Just in time for the Grammys, we air a special two-part episode on Marketing Rock 'N Roll.

We'll trace the marketing of rock all the way back to its origins with Elvis Presley and his wily manager Colonel Tom Parker. We'll tell the story of how the Beatles lost millions by not following Elvis's blueprint, and how the Rolling Stones borrowed a strategy right out of the books of Madison Avenue to compete against the Fab Four.

And what show on marketing rock 'n roll would be complete without mentioning the biggest marketing machine in rock and roll history - KISS.

OUR FIRST CONCERT 1979
KISS & the KISS Army!

This photo and ticket stub are from the first concert my brother and I ever went to....my mother agreed to take us if we paid for the tix ( $12 each back then). It was the Dynasty tour at Madison Square Garden July 25th 1979. My brother Ed was 8 and I (Mike) was 10 years old. We were big KISS fans for a few years already since seeing them on the Paul Lynde Halloween Special, but this concert changed our lives . A night we would never forget!

This Saturday, Dodger Stadium is being transformed into an full-fledged hockey stadium for the first ever NHL outdoor game in Los Angeles at the Stadium Series game featuring the LA Kings taking on the Anaheim Ducks.

Taking part in the festivities of this anticipated outdoor game is recent Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees KISS, who will give a mini-concert during the first intermission of the game. This morning the one and only Gene Simmons joined us live on air to talk about performing at LA’s first outdoor hockey game, plus share his abundance of music knowledge, sentiments about being inducted to the Rock Hall and much more.

KISS is just one of the big-name talents performing at the Stadium Series game this weekend along with Jordin Sparks and Five For Fighting. The band will rock the stadium after the first period of the game, and Gene assures it will be a show to remember.

“How exciting is that going to be?” said Gene. “Dodger Stadium. Outdoors. Southern California right here in Los Angeles, you’re going to see great champions going at each other on blades on ice, but…we’ll be able to shake the heavens. KISS in full bombast, we’ll have more firepower than most third world countries.”

Not only does KISS have the honor of being the first band to play at LA’s outdoor hockey game, but the band also holds another title at Dodger Stadium of being the first band to put on a 3D concert on the field in 2000.

Gene Simmons and his rock band KISS are set to perform at Dodger Stadium as part of the NHL 2014 Coors Light Stadium Series.

The first-ever outdoor hockey game in Los Angeles puts the Los Angeles Kings against the Anaheim Ducks on Jan. 25.

The veteran rock act will perform before the game and during the first intermission. It will air on NBC Sports Network in the U.S. and on CBC and RDS2 in Canada.

KISS will be part of an entertainment lineup that aims to blend Hollywood and NHL stars as part of the warm-weather outdoor game in Dodger Stadium.

"Los Angeles is the premier hub for sports and entertainment in this country, and we are honored to be part of an event that fuses both by rocking the first-ever outdoor NHL game in LA," Simmons said in a statement Thursday.

Simmons and fellow KISS member Paul Stanley are also behind a new arena football team, LA KISS, to debut at the Honda Center in Anaheim.

Legendary Rockers Looks to Pack Honda Center With Arena Football

CLICK here for tickets and more info on LA KISS

By Chris Casacchia | Orange County Business Journal

Kiss front man Gene Simmons promises to recreate the same raucous experience that's defined his rock band's concerts for more than four decades in his latest business venture: arena football.

The entertainment tycoon who's licensed everything from Hello Kitty dolls to comic books will test his marketing chops in an industry plagued with challenges and in a market that's hummed along just fine without professional football for the last 20 years.

Simmons is quick to downplay those concerns.

"There's only one business on Earth, and that's show business," he said. "Unless you make something fun and interesting to people, they don't care. We're going to have a lot of fun."

Fans who attend L.A. Kiss' April home opener at the Honda Center in Anaheim can expect to see a show before, during and after the game. And that doesn't even account for the fast-paced action on the turf, where players frequently get knocked into the stands and missed field goals are rebounded off netting behind the skinny goal posts and played live.
