Trace Adkins to Head Out with Carnival LIVE Again in 2016


Carnival Cruise Line has announced its initial 2016 Carnival LIVE lineup and country musics’ very own Trace Adkins will be heading out with them again this year.  Journey, Gladys Knight, and KC & The Sunshine Band will also be entertaining guests 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 guests 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 – meaning 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 vessels 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 Feb. 1-3, respectively. Knight will showcase songs from her incredible musical career that began in Motown and then crossed over to pop music with her Grammy Award-winning number one hit “Midnight Train to Georgia.”

Fans are sure to “get down tonight” as they enjoy three high-energy shows in Cozumel by KC & The Sunshine Band, who rose to fame in the 1970s with four consecutive number one singles. Led by charismatic front man Harry Casey – better known as KC – the concerts will take place in Cozumel March 22-24 aboard Carnival Paradise, Carnival Fantasy and Carnival Breeze.

Diamond-certified album holder 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.  The band has sold 80 million albums worldwide and has earned 19 Top 40 singles and 25 gold, platinum and multi-platinum albums since its formation in 1973 in San Francisco. The prestigious “Legend of Live Award” was presented to JOURNEY at the 2011 Billboard Touring Awards to honor the band’s contributions to live music.

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.  Adkins’ trademark baritone has powered many hit songs to the top of the charts, with the Grammy-nominated member of the Grand Ole Opry selling more than 10 million records and 20 singles on the Billboard country charts.

Carnival LIVE tickets for 2016 range from $40 to $75 for general admission, significantly less than land-based venues.  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.

A full listing of the 2016 Carnival LIVE concert series is available by visiting, contacting any travel agent or calling 1-800-CARNIVAL.
