2014 is still alive and kicking, but Carnival Cruise Lines unveiled its new Carnival LIVE Concert Series roster for spring 2015, bringing more of the best live music to sea from some of most popular and highly requested music acts. Coming on board in the first part of next year will be Journey, Rascal Flatts, Little Big Town, Smokey Robinson and Styx.
The artists perform while the ship is in port, so it's not like you are going on a cruise with Smokey!
The exciting 2015 Carnival LIVE concert lineup continues this one-of-a-kind entertainment option, while building on the success of an inaugural year of high-energy, sold-out on-board performances. Next year, the company will announce even more acts scheduled for the latter half of 2015.
So this announcement for 2015 acts is JUST the beginning.
Carnival LIVE was created to give guests the opportunity to experience exclusive live entertainment from major music artists, all at a tremendous value and with great convenience. Guests attend shows in the ship's main theaters – which range in seating capacity from 900 to 1,300 – for an intimate on-board performance where there is never a bad seat in the house.
"Our 2014 Carnival LIVE shows have been tour standouts, so we are thrilled to get on board again to rock the boat next year," said Tommy Shaw, singer and guitarist for Styx. "The audience of cruisers in a vacation state-of-mind combined with the ship's theater design creates an incredible energy that's fun for everyone, including the band."
Guests will have even more Carnival vessels, homeports and itineraries to choose from with a total of 10 "Fun Ships" departing from six convenient U.S. homeports hosting concerts in spring 2015. Carnival LIVE voyages will originate in Miami, Port Canaveral, Tampa, and Jacksonville, Fla; Charleston, S.C.; and, for the first time, Galveston, Texas, the line's second largest homeport.
The 2015 Carnival LIVE Concert Series kicks off next March and features one or more major artist each month, performing multiple shows on Carnival vessels docked in one of three ports of call: Cozumel, Nassau and a new port for the program, St. Thomas. Artists board the ship in port, perform in the main show lounge, and then debark following the concert.
Journey kick off the 2015 roster with two rock anthem-filled performances on March 18 and 19 in St. Thomas.
Little Big Town bring their unmistakable sound to "Fun Ships" in Nassau for three appearances on March 30 and 31 and April 1.
Smokey Robinson sing timeless classics from his 50-year music career and fans can catch the icon April 21, 22 and 23 in Cozumel.
Country trio Rascal Flatts will perform a series of three shows for guests in Cozumel on May 5, 6 and 7.
Styx concerts to be performed in Nassau are slated to take place June 16, 17, 18 and 20.
