Digital News Report – Carnival Cruise Lines announced an exclusive concert from the band Maroon 5 that will be on November 14, 2011, in Galveston, Texas. The concert will be free, but will be a ticketed event that will be held at the Pier 21 where the new Carnival Magic cruise ship will have its inaugural U.S. voyage starting the day after the concert celebration.
In May, the Carnival Magic started service in Europe. Now, the cruise ship will be arriving to Galveston, Texas to start service this fall in the United States. The Maroon 5 concert will be free, but is for invited guests.
To be invited and get the tickets to attend the special concert, Carnival has set up a contest on their Facebook page. The winner will get airfare, hotel, transportation, and spending money, along with two tickets to the concert. For people living in Texas, they can visit Carnival’s Texas Facebook page to have additional chances to win tickets to attend the free Maroon 5 concert. Carnival will also be working with local radio stations to give away the tickets to the event.
