Mardi Gras confirms Olivia Newton-John, Faker and Potbelleez
Mardi Gras today confirmed the rumours are true – Olivia Newton-John will be among the performers at the 30th anniversary Sydney Gay & Lesbian Mardi Gras Party on 1 March at The Royal Hall Of Industries, Entertainment Quarter.
New Mardi Gras is thrilled to have Olivia come to the Party, joining a huge lineup of international and local names, some revealed, others that won’t be revealed until the night! Mardi Gras has made a donation to Olivia Newton-John’s Breast Cancer Centre in lieu of a performance fee.
Speaking about her upcoming Mardi Gras performance, Olivia was excited about coming to the Party.
"I am thrilled to be a part of Sydney's Mardi Gras,” Olivia said.
“2008 will mark some important milestones in my life as I will walk the Great Wall of China in April as a fundraiser for my cancer center in Melbourne and GREASE celebrates its 30th Anniversary!
“I can't think of a better way to start this year off with than singing at Mardi Gras!
“The gay community has always been a major supporter of mine and I am hopelessly devoted to each and every one of them! I can't wait!"
Joining Olivia at the Party will be international DJ’s Hex Hector, Agnelli & Nelson and Paul Goodyear, as well as a number of local bands including Faker and the Potbelleez.
After years of trying, Mardi Gras organisers have secured the services of the entertainment icon for the March 1 closing party as the festival marks its 30th anniversary. Newton-John is geared to deliver one of the campest Mardi Gras dawn shows yet with her exclusive gig. Discussions are continuing as to which of her hits Newton-John will sing, but there are promises of dozens of back-up dancers and a guarantee that everyone present will know the words, the SMH reports.
