Motorboat 2015: Day 4 – Motorhead, Anthrax, Crobot, Kyng, Meet + Greets and More
The last day of Motorhead’s Motorboat cruise was one at sea and jam-packed with awesome concerts, hilarious events, meet & greets and much more.
Early in the morning, Pantera blasted for Heavy Metal Yoga. Fans also spent the morning waiting in line to meet Anthrax, Hatebreed, Suicidal Tendencies, Exodus and many more bands. In between the two batches of meet and greets, Finnish band Santa Cruz played their second gig on the cruise in the Dazzles Lounge. Budderside and the Dead Deads also rocked Dazzles later on in the day.
Some of the most hilarious antics took place on the Deck Stage as Jill Janus of Huntress curated an ACTUAL motorboating competition where some lucky lads buried their faces in boobs. Carla Harvey of the Butcher Babies and Anthrax drummer Charlie Benante helped judge the infamous Belly Flopping contest!
The fun on the Deck Stage continued at California rock trio Kyng took the stage by storm. One of the most awesome sets of the entire cruise came Crobot, who stole the show. Crobot’s fellow Beach Wars mates Santa Cruz, Kyng and even Pepper Keenan and members of Huntress and Hatebreed watched their set. At the end of their performance, fearless frontman Brandon Yeagley climbed the scaffolding and dived straight into the pool in front of the Deck Stage.
Over in the Stardust Theater, both Anthrax and Motorhead performed for their second sets of the cruise. “Would you rather have lunch with Lemmy or God? That’s a trick question because Lemmy is God!” said Jose Mangin of Sirius XM radio just before Motorhead took the stage. The ship was a little more stable than the previous night when Motorhead performed, and Lemmy Kilmister seemed to be in higher spirits as he let his humor and wit take hold of the crowd. Motorhead fans can only wait to see what else the band has up their sleeve for 2016.
The mosh pool was back in action as Suicidal Tendencies obliterated the Deck Stage later in the day. The night ended on the outside stage and as the cool night breeze blew, the Shrine and Motor Sister were the last performances of this unforgettable cruise.
Motorboaters woke up the next morning, not wanting to leave the ship. We all are already waiting for details on Motorboat 2016!
