GRAMMY award-winning band Maroon 5 are set to play in Galveston, Texas on 13 November for the US debut of Carnival Cruise Lines’ newest ship, Carnival Magic.
Set to the backdrop of the spectacular new Carnival Magic from Pier 21, thousands of fans of Maroon 5 and Carnival will be treated to a free, ticketed concert by the multi-platinum group the day before the new vessel sets sail on its first Caribbean cruise.
“We wanted to do something big and memorable to mark Carnival Magic’s US debut and what better way to celebrate than to bring together fans of music and fans of Carnival, along with our partners in Galveston, for an exceptional afternoon of fun and entertainment,” says Gerry Cahill, Carnival Cruise Lines’ president and CEO. “We’re thrilled to kick off year-round Caribbean cruising on the newest and most spectacular ship sailing from Texas.”
Adam Levine, Maroon 5 frontman and coach on the hit NBC series The Voice, says, “We’ve played every kind of venue imaginable across the world, but we’ve never helped to launch a new cruise ship. We’re excited to work with Carnival and to be part of the Carnival Magic celebration for fans in Texas.”
Following the concert, Carnival will host several thousand travel agent partners on board Carnival Magic for an evening of dining and entertainment. The ship offers a host of innovations, including a WaterWorks aqua park with a 312-foot-long spiral water slide and The Lanai, a wraparound promenade with an outdoor barbeque area and whirlpools that extend out over the ship’s sides.
