Say It Ain’t So: Weezer will headline cruise

The sea is rollin’ like a thousand pound keg, and Weezer is getting ready to rock the Carnival Destiny’s lido deck. The Grammy Award-winning band has just announced they will be entertaining 2,500 passengers on a 4-night sailing from Miami to Cozumel (yes, Mexico’s own ‘Island in the Sun‘) in January.

The bill also features Dinosaur Jr., with other acts including Sebadoh, Gene Ween, Wavves (how appropriate), Dave Dreiwitz, the Antlers and more. The bands will perform shows festival-style on four stages day and night, with Weezer rocking the pool deck as the ship sets off and again in the indoor main theater. Weezer fans will have a chance to get photos with the band and participate in a Q&A session.

The whole shebang was put together by Sixthman, the same company that puts on cruises featuring rock and roll acts such as Kid Rock, Lynyrd Skynrd, Lyle Lovett, Kiss, 311 and more. Prices for the Weezer Cruise, which sails from January 19 to 23rd, start at $699 per person.
