The 2015 Carnival LIVE Concert Series kicked off in grand style last week with two sold-out performances by rock legends Journey aboard Carnival Liberty and Carnival Splendor.

Held aboard the two ships while docked in St. Thomas, Journey had audiences out of their seats and singing along as they performed hits from their incredible catalog of music which spans nearly 40 years.

The two concerts by Journey are among the wide variety of popular musical acts performing this spring as part of Carnival LIVE.   Later this month, country superstars Little Big Town will perform three shows aboard Carnival ships in Nassau with R&B legend and Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Smokey Robinson entertaining audiences aboard three Carnival ships in Cozumel.

Rounding out the spring series are three shipboard concerts by country favorites Rascal Flatts in Cozumel and four shows by platinum-selling artists Styx in Nassau.

Carnival LIVE offers guests sailing on select Carnival Cruise Line ships the opportunity to enjoy an exclusive and intimate onboard performance by a diverse roster of popular music artists while ships are docked at a port of call. Artists join the ship while in port, perform in the main show lounge that evening, and debark following their show.

Tickets cost $35-60 each. A limited number of VIP tickets are also available for each show for $125-$250 each and include an artist photo opp, seating in the first four rows and a commemorative laminated concert pass.

Carnival expects to announce the summer/fall Carnival LIVE lineup in the coming weeks.
