Carnival LIVE 2017 lineup announced
On Aug. 3, Carnival Cruise Line announced their lineup for the 2017 Carnival LIVE shows, a series of comedy acts and country music concerts that will take place in the main show lounges of various Carnival cruise ships while the ships are docked in Nassau, Bahamas.
These smaller venues, which hold between 900 to 1,300 people, offer a more intimate experience with the performers. There are some big names headlining the series throughout the next year. On March 2 and March 3 respectively, Grammy-winning artist Tim McGraw will be performing on the Carnival Breeze and the Carnival Valor.
On May 11 aboard the Carnival Dream and May 12 on the Carnival Valor in Nassau, Alabama-based music group Little Big Town is slated to perform.
The second and penultimate set of artist performances will come from world-famous stand-up comedian, actor, TV host and radio personality Jeff Foxworthy. His shows will take place on June 21 and 22 on the Carnival Freedom and the Carnival Ecstasy.
Former “Tonight Show” host Jay Leno – who featured Park West artist Scott Jacobs on his show “Jay Leno’s Garage” – will close out the series of shows in Nassau with performances on the Carnival Victory on May 3 and the Carnival Vista on May 4.
According to Carnival’s website, Carnival LIVE is a show that “brings entertainers you know to the greatest venue of all: your vacation… You’ll have the unique opportunity to see an amazing musician, or a laugh-out-loud-funny comedian, take the stage in a theater venue. Seating is limited, but there isn’t a bad seat in the house.”
Tickets for each show run from about $30 to $80. For a photo with the artist and a ticket in the first five rows, you can purchase VIP level seating for $100 to $300.
The performances on the ships will add to the already existing options of live entertainment aboard the cruises. Don’t forget to attend our exciting live art auctions during your cruise!
