Dreams do come true: Living the best concerts on a cruise

posted in: Lifestyle | 5

I couldn’t experience live concerts when I was young because my Dad was very strict about my education and social life.
However, thanks to Monsters of Rock and my husband I could live my second teen years by hitting the high seas with the best hard rock/heavy metal bands.

You can also watch the video that I filmed and recently posted about the cruise.

Monsters of Rock Cruise crowded its biggest-ever lineup on board and set sail last Feb. 22, 2016 with a roster of headlining acts that included Tesla, Y&T, Steve Vai, Queensrÿche, Sebastian Bach, Vixen, Uli Jon Roth, Helloween and Extreme. Those are just a handful of the more than 40 acts. Some of the smaller and lesser known acts gave the big boys a huge run for their money as well – Hellion, Madam X, Lillian Axe, Hardcore Superstar, etc.

The organizers of the cruise were very professional and pulled off a complex event like it was no problem at all. Everything went perfectly smooth. There was a schedule of concerts, photo ops and other events like ‘cooking with the stars’ and bowling matches for charity. There was so much happening at all times that it was almost difficult to plan your time to see your favorite bands and partake in the events. However, you didn’t have to miss anyone in case of scheduling conflicts because all bands played at least twice.

Hellion

Vixen are an example of what is a star on and off the stage. They are very professional and their show is perfect but when they are not playing, their interaction with the fans is fantastic. They talk with them, take pictures, and sign autographs… I am their number one fan!

There were excursions to a private island (Great Stirrup Cay) and The Bahamas, events, activities, Q&A with the bands, access to fitness center, pools, jacuzzis, casino, disco/night club…
