Rob Thomas the frontman of Matchbox Twenty has revealed that he is more than a little nervous about the group's upcoming fan cruise to the Bahamas. MSN reported on Thursday, March 7 that Thomas' biggest fear is that the cruise ship will breakdown, or lose power during their voyage in December.
The "Push" hit maker has been working to assure all Matchbox Twenty fans that his band's cruise is still on, and that he is working on his back up plan should the cruise ship run into any issues.
Thomas admitted that his fears, and concerns have grown, especially since February's Carnival cruise disaster, where the passengers were left without power, food, and proper sanitation on board during a cruise to the Gulf of Mexico.
Rob Thomas stated to VH1's "Big Morning Buzz Live,": "I'm scared of being covered in poop. ... To anybody that's on that cruise I just wanna apologize now because if something like that happens, I'm getting outta there. I'm gonna get helicoptered out. I'm gonna leave you behind like I don't know your name. ... If you're in my band, you better be right behind me because I'm gone. ... I'll do my show hovering over the ship. I'm scared in general of going on cruises; I'm scared of sinking, I'm scared of tipping and now I'm scared of poop."
And Thomas still can't believe he signed up for a fan cruise in the first place: "I was one of those people ... that said, 'You can't pay me to go on a cruise.' Apparently you can. ... It's the end of everything for us this year ... and it seemed like a good way to kind of end everything; it's just us on a boat, drinking a lot and playing music."
The cruise is scheduled to set sail from Florida in December.
Matchbox Twenty is currently on tour and will play on March 8 at Mohegan Sun in Uncasville, CT. For a full tour schedule click here.
