After greeting AMORPHIS and MOONSORROW on board and promising their Finnish friends that they will come back for more, 70000TONS OF METAL, The World’s Biggest Floating Heavy Metal Festival sailed across the Baltic Sea to Rostock, Germany where they dropped off a scouting party. Their first destination was Berlin… and from there they will go IN EXTREMO!
Public Sales will start Tuesday May 31st, 2011 at 10AM PST with ticket prices starting at US$666 plus US$289 taxes and fees per person and include all on-board entertainment, all meals, non-alcoholic and non-carbonated beverages at the dining rooms, most on-board restaurants and 24 room service!
So far 10 out of a total of 40 bands on board are known:
MY DYING BRIDE
70000TONS OF METAL will sail Monday, January 23, 2012 aboard the Royal Caribbean “Majesty of the Seas” from Miami FL to George Town, Cayman Islands and will not return you to the real world for four days until Friday, January 27, 2012.
Make no mistake, 70000TONS OF METAL is not your grandma’s cruise. It’s also not one of the cruises that share the ship with normal cruise guests. This is an all heavy metal cruise! Can you imagine that? A whole luxury cruise ship full of metalheads? And since there is no backstage area you will have the opportunity to mingle side-by-side with the artists in this incredibly fan-friendly scenario that has no comparison. It’s like everyone has a backstage pass!
What are you waiting for? You might even need a vacation from this vacation when all is said and done! Check out http://www.70000tons.com/ for more information and book your cabin NOW!
