Bonnie Tyler to perform 'Total Eclipse of the Heart' during the total solar eclipse

Naturally, the performance will take place on a cruise ship

Posted on

Surely, you’ve heard: On Monday, the 48 contiguous U.S. states will experience its first solar eclipse since 1979. (Here’s hoping you haven’t been sold a fake pair of eclipse glasses!) And while plenty of themed viewing parties continue to emerge, one simply holds more promise than the rest.

Welsh singer Bonnie Tyler will take the stage on Royal Caribbean’s week-long Total Eclipse cruise to, yes, sing her 1983 cut “Total Eclipse of the Heart.” But, it gets better. Joe Jonas’ dance-pop outfit DNCE will serve as Tyler’s backing band for the gig.

The singer is meant to kick off her performance just as the moon sails across the sun and, as the singer told TIME, “It’s going to be so exciting. It doesn’t happen very often, does it?”
