Megadeth is joining 70000 Tons of Metal, KISS, Shiprocked, Cruise To Edge and others with their own cruise. The band launched a mailing list signup and social media networks promoting the TheMegaCruise, sailing in the Pacific in 2019. No other information is available yet. Typically major cruise lines sail out of ports like Los Angeles, San Diego or Seattle, and travel to Mexico, South America or north to Canada or Alaska. Links to signup are below. Megadeth is celebrating 35 years as a band in 2018 and is working on a new album for release in 2019.
Megadeth’s Dave Mustaine told “Rock Talk With Mitch Lafon” back in June that the release of the band’s next album would coincide with the launch of a new MEGADETH-curated event, to be held in at least two separate installments over the course of several months. “We’ve got a huge festival that we’re gonna be announcing,” he said. “It’s really a big deal. It’s kind of the equivalent of Gigantour, but it’s a much fresher idea. We’ve got that set up in about 10 cities in April, and then we’re gonna do it again for a three-day weekend in the middle of the year, and we’re gonna do probably about another 10 of those dates at the latter part of the year.”
