Carnival Cruise Line has announced its initial 2016 Carnival LIVE lineup with popular acts Journey, Trace Adkins, Gladys Knight, and KC and the Sunshine Band performing on 11 different ships next year.
Bringing the best in live music to the seas, Carnival LIVE is a one-of-a-kind entertainment experience that provides an opportunity to enjoy captivating performances by major artists at a tremendous value. Performances are held in the ships’ main theaters — ranging in guest capacity from 900 to 1,300 — so that there’s never a bad seat in the house.
Carnival LIVE performances will be offered on cruises departing from eight U.S. homeports with concerts taking place while ships are docked in Cozumel, Nassau, and St. Thomas.
- The 2016 Carnival Live Concert Series kicks off with three performances by legendary singer Gladys Knight who will perform while Carnival Liberty, Carnival Valor, and Carnival Splendor are docked in St. Thomas February 1–3, 2016, respectively.
- Fans will enjoy three high-energy shows in Cozumel by KC and the Sunshine Band; concerts will take place March 22–24, 2016, aboard Carnival Paradise, Carnival Fantasy, and Carnival Breeze.
- Legendary band Journey returns to Carnival LIVE for a second consecutive year with back-to-back shows in Nassau aboard Carnival Pride May 5 and Carnival Victory May 6, 2016.
- Fresh from his appearance at Carnival’s Ultimate Cowboys Fan Fest last month, Trace Adkins returns to Carnival LIVE again this year with three concerts in Nassau aboard Carnival Freedom July 6, Carnival Dream July 7, and Carnival Conquest July 8.
Carnival LIVE tickets for 2016 range from $40 to $75 for general admission; VIP tickets are available for $150 to $250 and offer seating in the first four rows, a photo opportunity with the artist, and a commemorative concert pass.
