Oh Ya-aah, World Party as Bonnie Tyler Performs Total Eclipse During the Total Eclipse

I just read a news story telling me about Bonnie Tyler singing her 1983 hit on a cruise ship during the upcoming eclipse.
Bonnie Tyler to perform Total Eclipse during total eclipse

"It's a big day for fans of eclipses, cruise ships, Bonnie Tyler and members of the Jonas Brothers.
News has reached us that Bonnie Tyler is going to perform her 1983 hit Total Eclipse of the Heart.
On a cruise ship.
During an eclipse.
With one of the Jonas brothers.
The eclipse
will take place on 21 August and last for about two minutes and 40 seconds.
will perform (a presumably shorter version of) the song while the eclipse is taking place."

Being a "half glass full" kind of guy (only because if we survive this current South China Sea adventure, I can see future wars being fought over half the contents of that glass) I thought wouldn't it be more fitting to have 'World Party' sing their big hit 'Ship of Fools', before Bonnie takes the stage during the eclipse.
Then have Celine Dion sing 'My Heart Will Go On' straight afterwards, and then Bonnie wrapping up the cruise show with 'Holding Out for a Hero'?
Thor in the Time of the Great Thaw?
It might be time to wo/man the lifeboats as 2018 approaches?
As we seem to be in for some rough seas ahead in the coming decades.

UPDATE: August 27th, 2017
And something other cruise liner passengers didn't see coming in the skies it would appear -
Cruises could be kept out of Galveston until Tuesday due to hurricane
""We have about 20,000 people on four cruise ships that are trying to enter the port," said Roger Quiroga, director of economic development and external relations for the Port of Galveston. "We're going to try to wait for the first opportunity, probably around Tuesday, to get them in."
Weather conditions forced the port to close to all traffic
Friday, said Peter Simons, interim director for the Port of Galveston.
Port officials expected gale force winds within 12 hours of the decision.
Port and cruise officials said they would get the ships into port as soon as weather allowed, which could be sooner than Tuesday.
“Depending on the weather, we may be able to bring some ships in on
Sunday,” Simons said.
Carnival Cruise Lines
officials said their Freedom and Valor ships both were at sea a safe distance away from the storm.
Both ships would make stops in
New Orleans to refuel and resupply and guests would be allow to leave, but would be encouraged to stay aboard and return to Galveston, officials said."
