"MOR 2015-URGENT-Need your Help!!!
Hi everyone, before we were even off the beautiful MSC Divina last week we received the flyer announcing next years Monsters of Rock Cruise, "Poseidon's Revenge". Sailing April 18th, 2015. So far scheduled bands are Europe, ("The Final Countdown"), Night Ranger, Lita Ford, Stryper, KIX, Zebra, Honeymoon Suite, & Keel among others.
Sooooo, who's missing!!! With the incredible success of the Monsters of Rock cruises now competition to be booked is hot and heavy. Their making us WORK now for our favorite bands to appear and get the best set times. We need ALL OF YOU-if you're definately planning on sailing again and have your deposit in, thinking about going next year, (you have a year to save), or just want to see "Y & T" get this fantastic exposure and want to help the cause we need YOU!!!
Go to the Monsters of Rock facebook page and post that you want "Y & T" back on board next year!!! Let Larry Morand the Promoter know how much you enjoyed the cruise if you went, Kat, Jamie, Kelly, Frank, SusanRocks, Lorraine, Raiderhog & family, Charger, Lisa, Rikki, Derek, I know I'm forgetting a few of you, sorry, and that you want to book again and want "Y & T" front and center. (You can even suggest some different Ports this time too). Some of us are showing up in the posted photos already or on the souvenir DVD. Spread the word on your own facebook page to those who may not participate on this Forum as well....Think of the music, the sandy beaches and those rum filled drinks. Let's do it!!!
Thank each and everyone of you for your efforts! Cheers, Lauretta
Keep it coming!
OK, I'm starting to see some familiar names and faces over on MOR's facebook page, keep posting that you want "Y & T" back on board. For those of you who may be considering going next year I have to tell you, this was the vacation of a lifetime if you are serious about your music and concert going. We saw at least 13-14 concerts in those 4 days, probably more, plus, great drinks, good food, fantastic beaches, seeing old friends and meeting new ones, and fun at Atlantis/Paradise Island in Nassau. But it's about the bands and the music we love! Well worth the $$$, and you know, you don't have to get an expensive cabin cause' I can tell you, you're not in it that much, there is just too much to do and see, (and hear!). Keep posting! Lauretta
Hi Lauretta! I've made some posts on the FB page... I'll post another in a few days. Gotta spread them out a little, ya know?
This year we saw 23 shows in 4 days on the ship! Plus the two pre-cruise concerts in Miami before boarding. It was truly a great week of rock! We had a great time with friends, ate some great food, and drank a lot of rum... It was fantastic!
We can't wait to go again for the 4th time, but we're not going without this band! I hope everyone will post and let them know what we want! Y&T in 2015!!!
Let's get the ROAR going!!!
OK everyone, here's the deal, I heard back from Jill yesterday, the guys are out on the road playing night after night for your pleasure and have only 4 shows to go then homeward bound....for a little break before they go out again. I'm seeing a lot of "first time" posters here who attended those shows and were just amazed at "Y & T", how fantastic they are after a 40 year career, still blazing thru 2 hour sets every night, who does that!!!
BUT....Jill has not heard from the MOR cruise promotor Larry Morand yet to have "Y & T" invited back for MOR 2015. The competition is really HIGH right now after 3 successful cruises to be on the next one, bands are chosen by "fan demand", the invitations are fan driven...which means we have to get a lot more "activity" going on MOR's facebook page. He needs to see and hear that big ROAR from all of you demanding them back. I'm getting a kick out of all the cabin door decorations, I remember some as I periodically got lost coming and going! I think I'll do a banner for our boys "Y & T" next year too......but they have to be on the cruise!!!
If you are in facebook contact with some of those who may not visit the Forum much anymore please urge them to post their cruise review, post photos of the guys (on the MOR facebook page) and incourage, no....make that BEG Larry and the crew to invite "Y & T" back again for MOR 2015. We have 363 days to go to "Sailaway" and I DO NOT WANT MSC Divina sailing out of the Port of Miami on April 18th, 2015 without "Y & T" aboard. That means I will not be aboard too and I cry just to think of that...I really, really want to go again as well of a lot of you who are just waiting for that announcement to drop our deposits! LET'S DO THIS!!! As always, thanks a million times, Lauretta
Here's the link to post to the main MoRC facebook page that Larry and his people run:
Larry also reads (and comments on ) posts to these group pages:
Hope this helps! Let's spread the word!
Hey, thanks so much "lala" for linkin' us up to all the addresses! We gotta do this people, the competition is on from all the 80's bands to get invited to MOR15. Fan bases all over are pitching their faves to get them back or on for the first time. You can see that KIX is on for the 4th time! Let's not let their fans outshine us!!! Get over to those websites and do your best to get the Mighty " Y & T" back on board !!! Cheers! "L"
OK, just about have the last show of the tour under their belts tonight then it's time to come home! Seems like they've been out FOREVER hasn't it! It warms my heart to see all the 1st time posters as well as returnees to "Y & T" shows across the country. Some of those reviews were so descriptive and enthusiastic I felt like I was there myself.
Saw over on the MOR facebook page that 1/5 of the ship is already booked! Yikes, this makes me nervous, I'm also seeing many of you requesting the return of the Mighty "Y & T" for another tour around the Bahamas. BUT we haven't received that Golden Invitation just yet, Larry is really making all the bands-fans work for it this time! Even if you are not going or just thinking about it, please, please go over there and do a little post requesting that they get invited back.
I made the ultimate sacrifice, I never intended to ever get a facebook account, just was not my thing, already have enough addictions, but I opened one so I could contribute my 2 cents for the cause. (Now I have to figure out how to navigate the rest of the site, haha). I'm getting tons of help from Lisa K. and hopefully I'll be up and running soon. for now I am contributing to many threads always getting in that all important "hint" for "Y & T" in 2015. We gotta do this for the boys! Links for the various sites are listed in a post above, let's get "Y & T"s name on that cruise poster when they announce the next batch of bands! Thank you as always, Lauretta
Good Morning, well, I'm seeing more activity over on thre MOR facebook page, lots of names I recognize requesting that "Y & T" be asked back and also names I don't recognize, those fans who may have "discovered" our guys for the 1st time this last cruise and definately want them back.
I'm also seeing some "interesting" replys from MOR! They reply with "We love 'Y & T' ", or "Dave is always great". One that was funny was " Y & T are family"! My first thought was.....OK then, stop fighting with the cousins and rebook them!!! There will be another announcement of added bands shortly and we are keeping our fingers crossed that we see that much loved-familiar logo in place on the MOR facebook page.
So.....get over there and make your case....for us all, thanks, as always, Lauretta
Just posted on MOR page hope it helps !!
Yes, thank you so much, every posting will help the cause! "L"
