Nerd rock on the high seas! Weezer have announced The Weezer Cruise, which sets sail on January 19th and runs through the 23rd of next year. That's 2012, mind you. The Weezer Cruise is a music festival-at-sea curated by Weezer on the Carnival Destiny sailing from Miami to the island of Cozumel, off the coast of Mexico.
Along with Weezer and 2,500 passengers, The Weezer Cruise will feature 15 other bands performing shows around the ship through the day and night, festival-style. Weezer will perform on the pool deck as the ship pulls out and then again in the indoor main theater.
In addition to Weezer, there will be performances from Dinosaur Jr., Sebadoh, Gene Ween and Dave Dreiwitz, Wavves, The Antlers, Yuck, Free Energy, Boom Bip, J. Mascis, Lou Barlow, Keepaway, Ozma, The Nervous Wreckords, The Knocks, Sleeper Agent, and Yacht Rock Review.
Wow, that's an indie rock cruise full of '90s college radio stars, for sure! We love that the band has a full lineup of acts performing with them!
Between the many shows taking place on the four stages around the ship, fans will participate in games and activities, swim in the ship's pool, play a few rounds of bingo, or order from the 24-hour room service menu. After a day-and-a-half at sea, guests can spend their Saturday soaking up the sun on Cozumel's beaches before returning to the Caribbean for more rock and roll.
For this inaugural experience, Weezer have partnered with the industry leader in theme cruises, Sixthman. Prices start at $799 per person for double cabins, or four people can sail together for just $599 per person. Fans can sign up for the pre-sale and watch a video announcement from the band here. Sixthman will open pre-sale bookings on July 21st and cabins will go on sale to the general public on August 3rd.
