"We're in the house that Kobe built," Stanley said before putting on the #24 jersey to chants of Kobe's name in the building where the longtime Laker won five NBA championships. "He was so much more than a basketball player. Somebody who's been a role model, and tonight, I think we dedicate this show not only to Kobe, but his daughter Gigi and all those people who perished on that helicopter."

The dedication was an intro to classic KISS Destroyer track, "Do You Love Me." Watch the dedication and performance below.
