Porting from Miami next February 22-26, 2016, the Monsters of Rock Cruise will sail aboard Norwegian Cruise Line’s Pearl. Looks like bands confirmed so far are Queensryche, Kingdom Come, Helix, John Corabi and Killer Dwarfs. Monsters of Rock will also do a fall cruise out of California in 2016. So far, no bands listed for that yet. Leaving out of a California port makes a lot of sense. All the music cruises do south Florida but adding a West Coast vibe will help bring in new passengers I think.
Slash, Duff McKagan and Gilby Clarke recently reunited during a Slash show in Argentina. Basically it was glorious - I'm jealous of the people who saw this live. The rest of us get to watch the YouTube clips!
Lots of rumors about Van Halen hitting the road, but no real concrete info from the band, but that isn't shocking I suppose.
It makes sense for Van Halen to tour and support their upcoming new release of Tokyo Dome: Live In Concert.
