KISS to Appear on Animal Planet’s ‘Tanked’
Gene Simmons may like to boast that he’s never been drunk or high in his life, but he’s about to get ‘Tanked.’ Kiss will appear on the next episode of ‘Tanked,’ a show on the Animal Planet cable channel. The program will center on the owners of the Las Vegas-based Acrylic Tank Manufacturing company as they build a giant Kiss-themed aquarium for the band’s Monster Mini Golf course in Vegas.
According to the band’s website, the aquarium constructed by Wayde King and Brett Raymer, the stars of ‘Tanked,’ is designed to resemble a Kiss concert, albeit one performed by fish, complete with a replica of the Kiss stage setup (with the giant logo) and a light show. Miniature Marshall amplifiers surround the tank.
“We worked closely with the “Tanked” crew to design a Tanked where fish could ROCK, said Christina Vitagliano, the founder of Kiss by Monster Mini Golf. “We do not have a fish tank…we have a Kiss-tank!”
Kiss by Monster Mini Golf opened in March to much fanfare and much exposure (perhaps too much recently). The indoor course features the Rock ‘n Roll All Nite Cafe and the Hotter Than Hell Wedding Chapel.
The episode will air Saturday (June 9) at 9:00PM Eastern and Pacific.
