70,000 Tons Of Metal:
The voyage continues
Worse things happen at sea, as the old saying goes, and today is testament to that. The Pool Deck stage (aka the biggest stage on the cruise) still isn't ready or indeed built by the time Trollfest's set rolls round for an early morning metal session. Rumours are rife that the high winds are the problem, but at the official press conference, the organiser of 70,000 Tons (known as The Skipper) has some more information...
The person in charge of the build “started to build in the wrong direction” he says bluntly. Slightly embarrassing admittedly, but he assures the gathered journos that it will be up and running for tonight. However, it does mean that the inaugural hockey championship scheduled for tomorrow has been cancelled to accommodate the bands who couldn't play today – including the Blind line-up of Corrosion Of Conformity. He goes on to mention that next year's cruise won't be taking place on this vessel as the Liberty Of The Seas is moving to a different home port.
