Monsters of Rock Cruise Announces Two Pre-Cruise Shows
If four days of rocking on the high seas just isn't enough and you've got the weekend wide open before setting sail, Monsters of Rock might have you penciling in two days of headbanging! Lynch Mob will be headlining a Saturday, Feb. 20 show as the Pre-Cruise Party with a Shredder's Ball coming the next day featuring Winger, Saigon Kick and the all-star Rush tribute band, Hurry.
The cruise itself is already packed with some of the best rock and metal have to offer, featuring Tesla, Steve Vai, Sebastian Bach, Queensryche and Helloween and the addition of the weekend shows will set the tone for the voyage. Both shows will take place at Magic City Casino's 305 Club in Miami, Fla. Joining Lynch Mob will be Killer Dwarfs and Kickin Valentina. The Shredder's Ball lineup will also boast Sebastian Bach, Steve Vai and Paradise Kitty. Hurry consists of bassist James LoMenzo (John Fogerty, Megadeth, Black Label Society), guitarist Brent Woods (Sebastian Bach, Vince Neil), drummer Brian Tichy (Bonzo Bash, Whitesnake, Foreigner) and keyboardist Stephen Le Blanc (Jason Bonham's Led Zeppelin Experience).
The two shows will be complimentary for those who already have their ticket aboard the ship for the Shredders From the Deep clinics. If you haven't reserved your spot yet for the cruise, cabins are still available starting at $499. For ticket information visit the Monsters of Rock cruise website.
Not only will bands be performing on the ship, but axemen like Vai, George Lynch (Lynch Mob) and Gus G (Firewind, Ozzy Osbourne) will be providing free guitar clinics for those onboard, ensuring one of the more unique experiences in the ever-expanding world of heavy metal cruises.
