Mark McGrath On His "Utopian" Cruise
Along with the concerts, there looks to be a lot of activities on hand. Did you have a hand in picking those?
What's great is that, since it's MY cruise, I get to pick-and-choose what that's gonna be. One of the most fun things from the Summerland tour was that Robin from the Gin Blossoms knows every song in the history of man on acoustic guitar. You might just find Robin and myself at the pool taking requests and singing music. That interaction with fans is something we're looking forward to doing.
You might find yourself having breakfast next to Steve from Smash Mouth or the Spin Doctors. Nobody's hiding, it's about having an experience with these bands. That was very important to me, to make it very fan friendly. Whether you're swimming, playing bingo or shuffleboard with the bands, that's what we're doing.
I'm also having an "Rock and Roll Jeopardy" competition. With me being a three-time world champ, you get a chance to dethrone the champ, but that will never happen. We'll have karaoke nights where you can sing live to one of our bands or sing karaoke with us to a machine. A lot of cheesy fun events to make people laugh. Is there anything more fun than getting drunk and singing karaoke with your friends? How about getting drunk and singing karaoke with the bands you love? It's the utopian idea of what I think a fan would like to see.
