What is 70000 Tons of Metal? Why, it’s a cruise featuring a bunch of rad bands, metal heads, booze, weed, and metal chicks both fat and fit. And now, there’s a real serious reason for you to maybe consider going on the four-day seafaring metal show.
The one and only Coroner has confirmed it’s involvement in next year’s edition of the 70000 Tons Of Metal trek. The cruise will set sail from Miami, Florida, and hit the Cayman Islands on January 23, 2012, and return four days later. A total of 40 acts will perform on the cruise. I think I will have to attend this one. I’ll fucking drive to Florida if I have to.
Who else will be on the tour? Glad you asked.
Well, there’s Amorphis and Eluveitie. Grave Digger, In Extremo, and Moonsorrow are also confirmed. My Dying Bride will be there, as will Pestilence, Stratovarius, Therion, and Tristania.
Tickets are on sale now, with prices starting at $666 plus $289 taxes and fees per person, which includes all on-board entertainment, all meals, non-alcoholic and non-carbonated beverages at the dining rooms, most on-board restaurants and 24-room service.
