January 2015 is quickly approaching, and that meanshits the open sea for the 70000 Tons of Metal cruise. While we’re only a few weeks out, changes are still being made, the latest of which involves Annihilator. Get the details below.
70000 Tons of Metal is proud to announce that Annihilator mastermind, Jeff Waters, has invited ex-vocalist Coburn Pharr to feature in their performances when The World’s Biggest Heavy Metal Cruise sails to Jamaica in January 2015. Pharr was lead vocalist on Annihilator’s critically acclaimed and best-selling 1990 release, Never, Neverland, which includes classics such as “Road To Ruin,” “I Am In Command,” “Reduced To Ash,” and “Phantasmagoria.”
Seeing as how it is the 25th Anniversary of my favorite Annihilato album, I thought it would be a lot of fun to invite Coburn with us to perform some of the songs he was a part of. I haven’t seen him since 1992, so I think the fans are going to spot us having lots of conversations about the old days (and my ’80s hair style)! Current Annihilator vocalist, Dave Padden, is very much looking forward to this as he is a huge fan of that album and Coburn, but also because he won’t have to play and sing those songs hahaha!
Jeff Waters will also be hosting the Jamming with Waters in International Waters All-Star Jam, which will feature members from the 60 bands on board the 70000 Tons of Metal 2015, which includes Arch Enemy, Apocalyptica, Behemoth, Blind Guardian, Cannibal Corpse, Destruction, Michael Schenker’s Temple of Rock, Napalm Death, Therion, Venom, and many more!
70000 Tons of Metal, The Original, The World’s Biggest Heavy Metal Cruise, will sail Thursday, January 22, 2015, on board the Royal Caribbean Liberty Of The Seas from Port Everglades in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, to Ocho Rios, Jamaica, and will not return to the real world until Monday, January 26, 2015.
Ticket prices start at USD $666 per person (plus taxes and fees), which includes all on-board entertainment, non-alcoholic and non-carbonated beverages, most on-board restaurants, and even 24-hour room service!
