(Submitted) For many nights they had the wish to go back to the country of thousand lakes, which is famous for it's vodka but also for its many great Heavy Metal bands!
Time to announce two very special performances of one of Finland's finest on board 70000tons Of Metal, The World's Biggest Floating Heavy Metal Festival... a band that has sold millions of records and collected over 60 Gold and Platinum awards world-wide. Sailors... please welcome Nightwish!
Will this be 70000TONS OF METAL's last visit to Finland this year? Time will tell... For now, they set sail in the Gulf of Finland with their course set West...
Make no mistake, 70000TONS OF METAL is not your grandma's cruise. It's also not one of the cruises that share the ship with regular cruise guests. This is an all Heavy Metal cruise! Can you imagine that? A whole luxury cruise ship full of metalheads? You can enjoy tons of onboard live shows on several in and outdoor stages from early in the morning until late at night, open-mic nights, Heavy Metal karaoke with members of the bands, bars that never close, again: bars that never close..., a fun-and-sun-filled day on the beautiful island of Grand Cayman and since there is no backstage area you will have the opportunity to mingle side-by-side with the artists in this incredibly fan-friendly scenario that has no comparison. It's like everyone has a backstage pass!
So far 13 out of a total of 40 bands on board are known:
MY DYING BRIDE
