Kiss rocker Gene Simmons will sing the U.S. National Anthem before the Pittsburgh Steelers/Minnesota Vikings American football showdown in London this weekend (29Sep13).

The bass player, who performed the Star Spangled Banner before Oakland Raiders' home game against the San Diego Chargers last year (12), will belt out the tune again at Wembley Stadium on Sunday evening.

He says, "I'm excited to be touching down in London to sing our U.S. National Anthem at the Vikings-Steelers game. I always love playing a role in these types of high-action, fast-paced games, not to mention returning to the U.K. and performing in front of some the best fans in the world!"'
