Lifehouse's Bryce Soderberg prepares to rock the boat in Tampa



Lifehouse has performed all over the world since the band broke onto the scene 10 years ago with their single Hanging by a Moment. But there’s still one gig the foursome have yet to play: a cruise.

Next week, after Tuesday’s concert at the Ritz Ybor, the foursome will set sail with VH1’s Best Cruise Ever. It casts off from Tampa to Grand Cayman. The rockfest at sea will feature a dozen other musical acts. 3 Doors Down will host.

Dalia Colon caught up with Lifehouse bassist Bryce Soderberg in advance of both appearances, and asked about the current trend of rock 'n' roll cruises:

Why do you think a rock concert is a good fit for a cruise?

This whole rock band cruise thing, it seems like there’s a lot coming out everywhere. John Mayer is doing it and stuff. I just think it would be a lot of fun. We get to go on a boat, and our fans are out there, and we’re going to just relax, have a good vacation and play some rock music. It just sounds like fun. Why not?

Well, because you’re going to be stuck on a boat with fans. And not just any fans.


Yeah. Fans who would pay hundreds of dollars to be stuck on a boat with you. Will that be overwhelming?

I don’t think so. We have really cool fans. Personally, I think they’re all really polite and they don’t really overstep their boundaries so far. I think we’ll have our own privacy on that boat, too. So we’ll be fine.

Lifehouse plays at 7 p.m. Tuesday at the Ritz Ybor, with Green River Ordinance. Tickets are $26. Click here for details and tickets.
