NATIVE AMERICAN HERITAGE ASSOCIATION ANNOUNCES THE “MIDNIGHT RIDER” GREGG ALLMAN
AS FIRST ARTIST “ON BOARD” FOR ROCK LEGENDS CRUISE IV IN JANUARY 2016
LEGENDARY SINGER-SONGWRITER AND FOUNDING MEMBER OF THE ALLMAN BROTHERS BAND
TO BE JOINED BY OTHER POPULAR CLASSIC ROCK ARTISTS ON WHAT HAS BECOME THE LARGEST
MUSIC FESTIVAL AT SEA ABOARD ROYAL CARIBBEAN’S INDEPENDENCE OF THE SEAS
If you often feel “tied to the whipping post” just after the holidays, then we’ve got just the rock cruise vacation for you next January!
The one, the only, the legendary Gregg Allman has just been announced as one of the headlining artists for the forthcoming Rock Legends Cruise IV, the largest music festival at sea.
Talk about a ship-load of fun!
From such great songs as “Midnight Rider,” “Whipping Post” and “Ramblin’ Man” to “Melissa,” “I’m No Angel” and “In Memory of Elizabeth Reed,” fans of Gregg and The Allman Brothers Band can expect to hear him perform many of these songs and other classics on board the cruise.
Like you, we hope he plays all of ’em!
“I’ve heard great things about the Rock Legends Cruise from some close friends,” says Allman, adding “I look forward to being a part of it next year.”
“I, personally, have been a HUGE fan of Gregg Allman for more years than I’d like to admit,” states Pam Myers of the Native American Heritage Association. “I am beyond thrilled for him to join us on Rock Legends Cruise IV. His legions of fans span many generations and we are certain they will jump at the chance to book this opportunity to see him in such an intimate setting.”
Like Rock Legends cruises past, Gregg Allman will be part of another amazing line-up presented by NAHA that is expected to feature several other well-known classic rock artists from the 70’s and 80’s, who will be performing their most popular songs over the four-night excursion. All Rock Legends Cruises have featured over twenty artists, each performing at least two sets, amounting to over 60 performances in all.
To give you an idea of what’s in store, some of the artists featured on previous Rock Legends Cruises include ZZ Top, George Thorogood and The Destroyers, The Marshall Tucker Band, John Kay and Steppenwolf and the late, great Johnny Winter on RLC I (December 2011); Foreigner, Paul Rodgers, Creedence Clearwater Revisited, Kansas and Bachman & Turner on RLC II (January 2013); and The Doobie Brothers, Alice Cooper, Paul Rodgers, 38 Special and Don Felder on RLC III (February 2015).
Is it any wonder that Rock Legends Cruise III sold out nine months in advance?
Tickets went on sale for “IV” last October 1, 2014, with 1/3 of the available cabins selling the first week, yet there are many great cabins still available with pricing beginning at $899 per person (double occupancy) and as low as $599 per person if four people per cabin. Deposits can be made to hold cabins and monthly payments can be arranged.
Rock Legends Cruise IV — aboard Royal Caribbean’s Freedom-class Independence of the Seas — will depart Port Everglades in Fort Lauderdale, Florida on Thursday, January 21, 2016, then dock in Grand Turk on Saturday, January 23, before returning to Fort Lauderdale on Monday morning, January 25, 2016.
In between the concerts, meet & greets, Q&A forums and everything else “Rock Legends,” passengers will be able to enjoy such onboard activities as surfing and Boogie-boarding (thanks to the ship’s FlowRider surf simulator), basketball (full court), a mini golf course, rock-climbing, cantilevered whirlpools and a variety of gourmet restaurants and casual dining.
Although a year away, it’s worth the wait!
Just ask the many passengers who come back year after year after year!
