Google “Eclipse song” and you’ll find the lyrics to Bonnie Tyler’s 1983 pop hit “Total Eclipse of the Heart.”
So it’s appropriate that Tyler sing the song on a cruise celebrating the upcoming total eclipse on Aug. 21.
Tyler, 66, will roll out her biggest hit before a performance by the considerably more youthful Joe Jonas-led pop band DNCE, best known for “Cake By the Ocean,” recorded 32 years later.
DNCE was previously announced as entertainment on the Royal Caribbean International’s “Total Eclipse Cruise” aboard the Oasis of the Seas. The addition of Tyler was a surprise.
The Oasis will be cruising in the path of the total eclipse a few hundred miles off the coast of Florida in the Atlantic Ocean on Aug. 21, giving guests an early look before the sun in eclipse reaches the coast of South Carolina.
The seven-night Total Eclipse Cruise sets sail on Aug. 20 from Port Canaveral, visiting St. Maarten, St. Thomas, and Nassau in the Bahamas.
