The only place on earth to see Bonnie Tyler perform “Total Eclipse of the Heart” during the most recent solar eclipse – a total solar eclipse 99 years in the making – was on board Royal Caribbean International’s adventure-packed Oasis of the Seas.
Tyler, known as the international first lady of rock, joined multi-platinum selling band DNCE in an exclusive performance of the popular ballad for guests on the cruise line’s once-in-a-lifetime Total Eclipse Cruise.
“As if moving our ship to sail along the eclipse’s path of totality to give our guests 100 per cent visibility of this phenomenon wasn’t enough, we wanted to take it to another level – just above ‘out of this world’,” said Michael Bayley, president, Royal Caribbean International.
“Royal Caribbean is known as the most innovative cruise line, always pushing to create bigger and bolder adventures for vacationers.
“We’re excited to have DNCE and Bonnie on board, and even more thrilled to have seen the looks on our guests’ faces when she was brought on stage to sing ‘Total Eclipse of the Heart.’
“This is what we live for – to make unforgettable memories.”
As the moon made its way to cover the sun for the celestial event of the century, DNCE took centre stage in Oasis of the Seas’ open-air AquaTheater.
The concert culminated in the ultimate performance by DNCE and the Welsh-born singer.
All eyes were on Joe Jonas and Tyler, alongside DNCE band mates Cole Whittle, JinJoo and Jack Lawless, as they sang a powerful remix of Tyler’s classic, paying tribute to the solar eclipse.
