60 Bands, 4 Days, 1 Cruise Ship, and only 3000 Tickets. This is 70000TONS OF METAL™, The Original, The World’s Biggest Heavy Metal Cruise!

On 70000TONS OF METAL™ you get unrestricted festival access to all 120 live shows on board, 70000TONS™ OF KARAOKE until sunrise, Jamming In International Waters – the Official 70000TONS OF METAL™ All Star Jam which writes Heavy Metal History every year, Clinics and Work-Shops with the musicians, our infamous Belly Flop Contest, Shore Excursions with your favorite artists, and much more!

Everyone on board is a VIP, we don’t have assigned seating (this is a Heavy Metal Cruise after all), and most importantly the bars on our ship never close – you heard us, bars that never close!

On this life changing adventure you will spend five days and four nights at Sea mingling side-by-side with your favorite artists in this incredibly fan-friendly scenario that has no comparison. It’s like having an All-Access backstage pass!

Please Welcome CHANNEL ZERO On Board!

Did we forget about the scouting party that was in The Netherlands some time ago? What happened to them? They went South to Belgium and straight to the capital city of Brussels. Sailors, please welcome Belgium’s premier Heavy Metal Band: CHANNEL ZERO on board 70000TONS OF METAL, The World’s Biggest Floating Heavy Metal Festival!


Our Canadian Scouting Party Has Been Attacked!

While on our way back across the Atlantic we received word from our scouting party in Canada: Before they had a chance to leave the capital city, they were attacked by an ANNIHILATOR! Sailors, please welcome another Canadian Metal Legend on board 70000TONS OF METAL, The World’s Biggest Floating Heavy Metal Festival!

But that’s not all… as a special treat, Jeff Waters will be holding an exclusive Guitar Clinic on board!

Are We All Getting A Little EXCITER yet?

70000TONS OF METAL, The World’s Biggest Floating Heavy Metal Festival has reached the Canadian East Coast. Before turning the ship around, we dropped off a scouting party to explore this vast country. Given secret orders, they headed West to the nation’s capital of Ottawa where they received a raving welcome. Are we all getting a little EXCITER yet?
