Limp Bizkit, Metal Allegiance + Black Label Society Lead 2015 ShipRocked Cruise Lineup
Get ready for some serious waves in 2015. The organizers of the annual ShipRocked Cruise have revealed the list of performers for the ultimate rock music cruise vacation.
Limp Bizkit will headline the cruise, which sets sail from the Port of Miami to the Great Stirrup Cay in the Bahamas from Feb. 2-6. Frontman Fred Durst says of the upcoming cruise, "Limp Bizkit? New Album? Sunshine? Metal party? Phil Anselmo? Unlimited lobster? Half-naked women? No rules? Loud music? Every day? Every night? Repeat five times in a row? You don't have to ask twice. I'm in!!! See you there, Bizkit heads!"
You may notice that Durst mentioned Philip Anselmo in his statement and that's because the cruise will feature Metal Allegiance, an all-star collective of musicians who will perform classic rock and metal tracks. Along with Anselmo, Megadeth's David Ellefson and Chris Broderick, Anthrax's Joey Belladonna, Charlie Benante, Scott Ian and Frank Bello, Slayer's Gary Holt and The Winery Dogs' Mike Portnoy are among the band's ranks. The outfit recently rocked Motorhead's Motorboat cruise.
"It'll be a blast to rejoin my fellow badass Metal Allegiance compatriots on ShipRocked 2015," says Anselmo. "Expect more blasts from the past, plus some killer musicians amongst the awesome atmosphere of jamming on the water. Come out and jam with us!"
Mike Portnoy adds, "After the recent debut of Metal Allegiance, we couldn't wait to get back together and throw down again! We're fans just like everybody on the other side of the stage watching us. We all love this music and Metal Allegiance gives us a chance to hang, jam and have fun with this unique brotherhood of metal!"
You'll also find Chevelle, Black Label Society, Buckcherry, P.O.D., Sevendust, Tremonti, Andrew W.K., Living Colour, Filter, Lacuna Coil, Nonpoint, Otherwise, Zach Myers of Shinedown with JR Moore and Zack Mack, Crobot, Thousand Foot Krutch, Wilson, Islander, Andy Wood, Letters From the Fire, Cilver and DJ Lippy Rage on board ShipRocked.
And fans can get a jump on the vacation by taking part in the ShipRocked Super Sail Away Pre-Party on Feb. 1. The Pre-Party event will feature Chevelle's only ShipRocked performance, with Sevendust and Wilson also playing sets. Cruise guests can avoid the boarding lines by checking into their cabins early, watching the bands perform, check out the Super Bowl on the big screens and get pampered in the spa or gambling at the casino.
So be sure to take advantage of all the music, dining, drinking, swimming, gambling and working out available to you, plus enjoy meet-and-greets and Q&A sessions with the bands, two days of concerts and activities on the Great Stirrup Cay private beach and much more by booking your reservations now.
