This is a heavy metal cruise. The vibe will be loud, flashy and exhilarating, with no shortage of epic guitar mega-riffs and maniacal performances. But not all of the concerts will be powerful thrash scenes. Several more intimate shows, such as morning coffee jams, are on the program.
Who Would Like It
Naturally, 'deth-heads will feel at home and among friends on this Megadeth-hosted sailing. But any serious metal fans will likely have a ball on a cruise set to be "thrashing through the Pacific" in 2019.
