Former Young Talent Time host and TV Week Logies and ARIA Hall of Fame inductee, Johnny Young, will host an incredible cruise of Europe on the Baltic Sea, from June 26 to July 16, 2018. The Australian icon and national treasure will guide passengers through the history of pop and rock from the 60’s on, utilising his 50-plus years in the music industry to give  insight into some of the world’s most famous musicians.

From the ‘home of pop’, ABBA’s Stockholm, to Hamburg to celebrate five decades since The Beatles played the Star Club, to London for an immersive experience in British Rock ‘n’ Roll, visiting the sites that made the 60’s swinging and where both psychedelic and punk rock were born, the tour is the complete package for anyone wishing to reminisce on the days of classic pop music.

"Being in the music industry as both a performer and a TV and radio host for more than 50 years, I feel that I have a lot to share with passengers on this cruise," said Johnny. "I’m especially excited to go back to the beginnings of pop and rock music…I am still a rock ’n’ roller at heart."

Passengers have the chance to visit the home of British rock 'n' roll, London town.

A 60's legend in his own right, Johnny Young is the perfect host to share endless knowledge of these incredible destinations. The only person to be inducted into both the ARIA and Logies Halls of Fame, Johnny is best known as the host of Young Talent Time in the 70’s and 80’s. After achieving a number one hit with his double-A-side ‘Step Back’ and ‘Caralyn’ in 1966, his moving rendition of ‘All My Loving’ by The Beatles became his signature song, which he will perform on the cruise. Johnny Young has also received 3 gold records as an artist, 6 gold records as a songwriter, the 1966 King of Pop award, 6 TV Week Logie Awards, and GO-SET Songwriter of the year 1970.

On board the cruise, passengers can enjoy performances of all Johnny’s classic hits, as well as reminiscences about his time in the music industry. Even days spent at sea are an opportunity for guests to experience something new, whether that be through Johnny’s talks about music history, the Broadway-style shows on board, a drinks party hosted by Johnny himself, and much more.
