CALGARY – Iconic rock band KISS will be headlining The Stampede Roundup this summer.

The annual outdoor concert at Fort Calgary is the city’s largest corporate Stampede party and draws a crowd of around 17,000 people. Money raised by the event goes toward the Rotary Club of Calgary.

Last year, the event raised $225,000 for the non-profit organization.

“Each year corporate Calgary helps raise significant funds for the Rotary Club of Calgary, and with KISS headlining, despite tough economic times we hope to do it again,” Executive Producer Caitlin Boyle said in a news release.

The July 13 concert will also feature performances by The Cult and Moist.

Tickets for the private party go on sale at 10 a.m. on April 26.
