The production, featuring an eight-piece band, takes fans on a journey through the celebrated singer, actress, songwriter and philanthropist?s life and career, and was recorded and released as a two-CD collection ?Summer Nights ? Live In Las Vegas? earlier this year. With a career spanning across five decades with more than 100 million albums sold, Olivia?s successes include four Grammys, numerous Country Music, American Music, Billboard and People?s Choice Awards, an Emmy Award, ten #1 hits and more than 15 top 10 singles. She recently scored another #1 hit, this time on the Billboard Dance Club Songs chart with her latest single, ?You Have to Believe,? with her daughter Chloe Lattanzi. In 1978, her co-starring role with John Travolta in Grease catapulted Olivia into super-stardom and to date remains the most successful movie musical of all time. The show is a musical journey through the iconic artist?s illustrious career featuring hits from her early years including ?Have You Never Been Mellow,? ?Let Me Be There,? ?If You Love Me Let Me Know? and ?I Honestly Love You,? as well some of her hits from Grease, ?Hopelessly Devoted to You,? ?You?re The One That I Want,? and of course, ?Summer Nights.? Favorites from some of her other movies, including Xanadu, as well as her ?80s anthem and record breaking song ?Physical,? keep the room dancing, while new songs from her recent Billboard hit album Grace and Gratitude warm the hearts of all in attendance.
In addition, Newton-John is excited that a portion of every ticket sold to her Flamingo shows benefits the wellness programs the Olivia Newton-John Cancer & Wellness Centre (ONJCWC). In 1992, Olivia was diagnosed with breast cancer and it was her personal triumph against cancer that led her to announce her partnership with the Austin Health and the creation of the ONJCWC in her hometown of Melbourne, Australia. The ONJCWC opened its doors in 2012 and, provides a comprehensive range of services and facilities for cancer treatment, education, training and research as well as a dedicated wellness center (oliviaappeal.com). The Olivia Newton Cancer Research Institute opened its doors on the grounds of the ONJCWC in 2014.
Throughout her career, the much-loved star has held many humanitarian and environmental causes close to her heart, particularly since the birth of her daughter Chloe. Olivia served as Goodwill Ambassador to the United Nations Environment Programme, was the co-founder of Children?s Health Environmental Coalition (now Healthy Child, Healthy World) and, in 1992 she created National Tree Day in Australia, which is responsible for planting more than 10 million trees since its beginning. In 2008 she married ?Amazon John? Easterling and together they are spreading the word about the importance of preserving the Rainforest by serving on the board of the ACEER Organization (ACEER.org). With her life today focusing on health and wellness, Olivia is the co-owner of the internationally award-winning Gaia Retreat and Spa near Byron Bay in Australia. Most recently she co-founded One Tree, One Child, an international school initiative with the goal of having every child under the age of ten plant at least one tree.
