As far as vacations go, it’s harder to get more metal than 70000Tons of Metal, a cruise that takes you through international waters and to an exotic destination while delivering over 100 performances from the top names in metal.
We’re still a little ways out from any official lineup announcements but they revealed that 70000Tons of Metal will take place from January 30 to February 3 on cruise ship Freedom of the Seas, going from Miami to Bimini, The Bahamas.
Full band lineups, tickets and all those other details are coming soon. Seems like a pretty great cruise already and they haven’t even announced bands yet!
According to the press release:
“The Freedom of the Seas is one of the largest passenger vessels in the world and offers numerous amenities and unique bars including a casual Sports Bar & Arcade as well as a more sophisticated retro “R Bar” serving up classic cocktails. There is a vast selection of cuisine available across a number of restaurants on board, ranging from formal à la carte meals to casual international dishes, sushi, Italian fine dining and savory steakhouse classics.
“The luxury liner will sail to Bimini, The Bahamas: a chain of islands located in the north of The Bahamas, boasting picturesque white sand beaches, crystal clear waters, and various attractions to indulge in: sport fishing, snorkeling & scuba diving, relaxing at the local bars and cafes, or getting pampered at a beach club.”
“70000TONS OF METAL is The Original, The World’s Biggest Heavy Metal Cruise, which features 60 Heavy Metal bands aboard a luxury cruise ship performing across four stages, including The World’s Biggest Open Air Stage Structure to sail the Open Seas.
