Motorhead, Megadeth, Anthrax + Zakk Wylde Set for Inaugural ‘Motorhead’s Motorboat Cruise’
Motorhead are hitting the high seas, and if they have their way, you’ll never hear the ship’s horn. That’s because there will be some stellar metal bands on board ready to drown out any outside sounds on “The Loudest Boat in the World.” The inaugural ‘Motorhead’s Motorboat Cruise’ will set sail in September 2014 with Megadeth, Anthrax and a whole host of heavy rock acts joining in the fun.
Now for the specifics! The ‘Motorhead Motorboat Cruise’ launches Sept. 22 from Miami, visiting the ports of Key West, Florida and Cozumel off of Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula. Fans will have a chance to check out sets from Motorhead, Megadeth, Anthrax, Zakk Wylde, Danko Jones, Fireball Ministry, Wilson and more. There will also be comedy from Jim Breuer as well as several big surprises for those attending. The Carnival Ecstasy ship will eventually come full circle, docking back in Miami on Sept. 26.
Motorhead’s Lemmy Kilmister states, “This will be everything you’ve come to expect from a night out with us, except even louder, with more great bands and no way of escaping! If you thought waves could rock a boat, you’ve got another thing coming with this lovely little outing!”
Megadeth’s Dave Mustaine adds, “There never has and never will be another cruise like Motorboat cruise. Come on a thrashing voyage with Motorhead, Megadeth, Anthrax, Zakk Wylde and all Lemmy’s friends. This is the coolest way to ever see a metal concert.”
Anthrax guitarist Scott Ian chimes in, “Anthrax, Motorhead and Megadeth at sea??? To quote Chief Brody, ‘We’re gonna need a bigger boat.'”
Tickets for the ‘Motorhead Motorboat Cruise’ go on sale Tuesday, March 18 at noon ET. The event’s website — www.MotorheadCruise.com — is set to launch soon with full details and cabin pricing.
