Grammy® Award-winning artist Weezer and Sixthman are excited to announce The Weezer Cruise. Taking to the ocean January 19-23, 2012, The Weezer Cruise is a music festival-at-sea curated by Weezer on the Carnival Destiny sailing from Miami to the island of Cozumel, off the coast of Mexico.
Along with Weezer and 2,500 passengers, The Weezer Cruise will feature fifteen bands performing shows around the ship through the day and night, festival-style. Weezer will perform on the pool deck as the ship pulls out and then again in the indoor main theater.
In addition to Weezer, there will be performances from Dinosaur Jr., Sebadoh, Gene Ween and Dave Dreiwitz, Wavves, The Antlers, Yuck, Free Energy, Boom Bip, J. Mascis, Lou Barlow, Keepaway, Ozma, The Nervous Wreckords, The Knocks, Sleeper Agent, and Yacht Rock Review.
Between the many shows taking place on the four stages around the ship, fans will participate in games and activities, swim in Carnival Destiny’s pool, play a few rounds of bingo, or order from the 24-hour room service menu. After a day-and-a-half at sea, guests can spend their Saturday soaking up the sun on Cozumel’s beaches before returning to the Caribbean for more rock and roll.
Sixthman CEO Andy Levine said, “Translating Weezer’s live show from the road to the ocean will be one of the most fun things we’ve ever done. We can’t wait to show Weezer fans the time of their lives.”
Prices start at $799 per person for double cabins, or four people can sail together for just $599 per person. Fans can sign up for the pre-sale and watch a video announcement from the band at www.theweezercruise.com Pre-sale bookings will begin on July 21 and cabins will go on sale to the general public on August 3.
