Moody Blues Announce Artists and Dates for 2018 Cruise
The Moody Blues will be joined by Alan Parsons, Jefferson Starship, Dave Mason and others for the fifth Moody Blues Cruise. To be held Jan. 2-7, 2018, the trek includes stops at Grand Cayman and Cozumel.
"It's such a great opportunity to have all the fans together," Moody Blues frontman Justin Hayward says in a news release. "I think the cruises are probably more about the people who love the Moody's music getting together; I think we're kind of incidental to it."
Fans will set sail from Miami aboard the Celebrity Eclipse, which will play host to concerts, Q&As and meet-and-greet events. There will also be an array of restaurant, gaming and nightclub options, as well as a New Year's Eve concert and a football-watching party. Also featured are the Orchestra, which grew out of ELO, Little River Band, Ambrosia, Richie Furay of Buffalo Springfield, Ides of March and others.
"I'm looking forward to it, it's always fun," Hayward adds. "And it's good to be with other artists. So much these days we're the only artists on a bill; you never get to meet other people, but on the cruises you do. And there's some really great people this year that I'm really looking forward to seeing again."
Double-occupancy cabins start at $1,599; children 11 and under at the time of sailing are free, when sharing a cabin with two full-fare paying adults. Tickets go on sale beginning today at MoodiesCruise.com.
