So a couple of months ago I shared the first news about the 2018 “70000Tons Of Metal” Cruise and as I said then, it was my goal to help share the skinny on these events since so many people I know head out on them. I’m back now to share the information about the public sale of the tickets and a whole crop of additional bands who shall be joining into the high seas Metal fray. Read on.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: So I have left off a lot of the information that was already shared on the initial press release that you can find HERE as I was pressed for time. Since I’ve already shared my thoughts about this kind of event I will not repeat that either and instead ask, now that we have “24” bands listed as performing who are you Metal Sailors most excited to see and once again who do you hope will still be announced? You can do that down in the comments section below.
