Press Release Olivia Live In Sydney DVD

Olivia Newton-John And The Sydney
Symphony Orchestra (Live At The Sydney Opera House)

Michael Caprio


Hollywood, California – September 27, 2007 – With a career spanning more than four
decades, Olivia Newton-John has been one of the world’s top entertainment stars, with
international successes in the studio, on tour, on television and in films. In March 2006,
Newton-John performed 27 of her most popular hits and songs near and dear to her
heart with the Sydney Symphony at the historic Sydney Opera House.

“This concert was very special to me as it combined my career as a singer with my
personal roots growing up in Australia,” said Olivia. “I had the honor of performing at
the Opera House for the Queen but, this night was even more special as it gave me the
chance to perform all of my hits in this historic building – it’s hard to believe that I have
been singing for so long!”

On January 15, 2008, Capitol / EMI, in conjunction with ONJ Productions, will release
Olivia Newton-John And The Sydney Symphony Orchestra (Live At The Sydney
Opera House) on DVD – a musical celebration of Olivia’s illustrious career featuring
over two hours of her hits spanning more than four decades. In addition, the DVD
features a personal tour of some of Olivia’s favorite spots in Sydney from the Harbor
Bridge to Manly Beach, a vacation spot where she spent many summers as a child.

Beginning December 2007, Public Television will broadcast an hour-long edit of
highlights, Olivia Newton-John – Live In Sydney! from this stellar performance (check
local listings). The Public Television world premiere of this special will debut in New
York on WLIW-TV Channel 21 on October 2, 2007 at 8:00 p.m.

With a career spanning over four decades, Olivia has sold more than 50 million albums
worldwide, has had more than ten #1 hit singles, received numerous Grammy,
American Music, Billboard, Country Music and People’s Choice Awards and, an Emmy
Award for songwriting. She has also starred in numerous television shows, specials and
motion pictures including Grease and Xanadu, both of which are currently experiencing
new life as hits on Broadway.

In 1978, her co-starring role with John Travolta in Grease catapulted Newton-John into
superstardom. The film’s popularity fueled the best-selling movie musical soundtrack in
history, featuring the hits "You’re The One That I Want" and "Summer Nights" with
Travolta, as well as the mega-hit, "Hopelessly Devoted To You." To date the film
remains the most successful movie musical of all time. Her other film credits include
Xanadu, Two Of A Kind, It’s My Party, and Sordid Lives. She will recreate her role in
Sordid Lives for the forthcoming television series of the same name that will begin
airing in 2008 on Logo.

Adored by millions of fans around the globe, Olivia’s ongoing philanthropic efforts have
remained a major focus as she continues to give back to the community through a
variety of organizations. Among them is the Olivia Newton-John Cancer Centre, which
will provide a comprehensive range of services and facilities for cancer treatment,
education training and research, including a wellness center for the mind, body and

Olivia’s public, humanitarian and wellness related activities have always been of equal
importance throughout her career. Lightbridge Media, the creators and producers of the
Healing Quest branded television series (www.healingquest.tv) airing on PBS have
announced that Newton-John will join the Company and its acclaimed series beginning
in January 2008. As a new on-air co-host for the Healing Quest series, she will join
Judy Brooks and Roy Walkenhorst, the founders of Lightbridge Media and the current
on-air hosts in bringing programming that inspires, informs and empowers consumers to
take responsibility for their health and well-being. Olivia will also contribute as a
producer-at-large with the company across multiple media channels, producing stories
on integrative and natural approaches to health from around the globe, as well as
writing and recording some new music for Healing Quest.

In addition, Olivia remains extremely active in the recording studio. Following the critical
acclaim of her 2006 release, Grace and Gratitude, for which Billboard Magazine said
“Newton-John is soulfully committed to every word she sings, and fans will be taken
with the plush arrangements, melodic warmth and, of course, the artist’s regal vocals,”
Olivia will release Christmas Wish. The CD, featuring her signature vocals and
stunning new arrangements of classic holiday favorites as well as new songs written by
Olivia will be available exclusively at all Target store locations on November 6, 2007.
