70000 Tons of Metal

70000TONS OF METAL 2015!

The Original!

The World’s Biggest Heavy Metal Cruise!


Round 5, Still The Original!

There are many oceans and many ships, but 70000TONS OF METAL is different: They spare no expense to remove seats in the theater, or do you like seated Heavy Metal shows? On 70000TONS OF METAL you get unrestricted festival access to all live shows on board, not just one show per band with assigned seating based on which cabin category you booked. On 70000TONS OF METAL everyone is a VIP and you can come and go to any and all events as you please. With 60 Bands on board, this means you get access to 120 shows, Metal Karaoke until sunrise, the All Star Jam, Clinics and Work-Shops with the musicians on board, the infamous Belly Flop Contest and Bars that never close, yes, you heard right: Bars that never close! Two full days at Sea and the opportunity to mingle side-by-side with your favorite artists in this incredibly fan-friendly scenario that has no comparison. It’s like everyone has a backstage pass!


A New Ship, A New Destination!

Moving 70000TONS OF METAL to Royal Caribbean’s “Liberty Of The Seas” exemplifies their continued dedication to next-level onboard innovation. This cruise liner offers everything you could dream of having on your floating Heavy Metal Paradise including their 4 Stages: The PLATINUM THEATER is a five-storied concert hall in which they spare no expense to remove part of the (very comfortable) seating; The more intimate Egyptian themed SPHYNX lounge offers the local club atmosphere; The third indoor stage is in STUDIO B, the ice skating rink; and last but not least their jewel: The POOL DECK stage – The World’s Biggest Open Air Stage structure to sail the Open Seas, surrounded by several bars and pools, plenty of room to sunbathe on several decks and even hot tubs incorporated into the POOL DECK stage to soak in while you watch the shows!

But that’s not all, The Liberty Of The Seas is also a faster ship. This enables 70000TONS OF METAL to travel further… in this case Ocho Rios, Jamaica!


More Bands, More Fans!

Andy Piller, 70000TONS OF METAL’s Skipper states: “I want to make sure the intimacy between the bands and the fans does not change in our new environment. When we had 2000 cruisers we booked 40 bands. Now we will have 3000 cruisers which means we will be inviting 60 bands to perform!”
