Haha, this could be brilliant depending on what the other 36 bands are. Just registered now.

well, if i lived in miami, or at least the US that would be great, but i'd have to pay double the cabin price just to get there.

I can't believe I'm the first one who has the idea that Alestorm should play on that cruise too!

Maybe they could attack the cruiseship with a pirate boat and play a show or something...

More Finnish Bands? Yes! Please Welcome FINNTROLL

Before we take off on a world tour to pick up more bands for our line-up we thought we would need some more Finnish Trolls, so please welcome FINNTROLL to the line-up of 70000TONS OF METAL.
9 out of 40 and counting. Now we set sail in the Baltic Sea on our way to pick up the next band. Where may our next port call be...? You shall know soon! Stay tuned!
