Guster drummer Brian Rosenworcel took center stage on Friday to front the band on a not-so-serious cover of “Total Eclipse Of The Heart.” The humorous, singalong take on Bonnie Tyler’s 1983 smash brought Guster’s show at The Fillmore Philadelphia to a close.

Friday’s concert was the penultimate stop of Guster’s spring tour. The 25-song performance saw the quintet mix staples such as “Come Downstairs and Say Hello,” “Satellite,” “Terrified” and “Barrel Of A Gun” with rarities “Happy Frappy” and “Total Eclipse Of The Heart.”

Guster last performed “Happy Frappy” off their debut album, 1994’s Parachute, back on January 30, 2019 as per Setlist.FM stats. Another “Happy Frappy” followed at the tour closer on Saturday at The Capitol Theatre in Port Chester, New York. Meanwhile, the Bonnie Tyler song hadn’t been covered by Guster since April 3, 2012 with the previous version to that played on November 10, 2006.

The evening in the City Of Brotherly Love also saw the band honor Philadelphia by improvising the song “Sharp Provolone.” Guster’s Ryan Miller sang about his love for fatty foods and the type of cheese often used on Roast Pork sandwiches as his bandmates vamped on a funky groove.
