The Band Perry, Heart, Boston, Lionel Richie Coming To Carnival Cruises

The Band Perry, Boston, Lionel Richie and Heart will fill the stages of Carnival Cruise Line ships this fall as part of the line's Carnival Live concert series.

The concerts are held in the ship's main theaters — intimate venues that give fans a close-up experience with their music idols. (Read our review of Journey's spring 2015 concert aboard Carnival Liberty.)

Country stars The Band Perry will perform July 28-30 on Carnival Sensation, Carnival Fascination and Carnival Magic, respectively, while the ships are docked in Nassau, Bahamas.

Arena rockers Boston will play Carnival Sunshine, Carnival Fantasy, Carnival Sensation and Carnival Ecstasy in Nassau, Aug. 19-22.
