AS MOST of Sydney's big spenders gathered in Darlinghurst to celebrate the launch of a new credit card for David Jones, it was a mostly musical crowd that headed to the State Theatre to see Olivia Newton-John perform with "friends" including Guy Sebastian, Vanessa Amorosi, Christine Anu, Daryl Braithwaite, Kate Ceberano, Tim Freedman, Todd McKenney, Ian Moss, James Reyne and Melinda Schneider.
Big spenders in the audience at the State included the federal Opposition Leader, Malcolm Turnbull, and his wife, Lucy. (SiT was informed they paid in full for their tickets.)
Newton-John walked the red carpet with her new husband, the natural medicines mogul John Easterling.
Dressed in a black velvet suit, Newton-John sat in the audience for the first half of the show and joined the cast on stage after the interval. The concert was a fund-raising effort for a Cancer and Wellness Centre that Newton-John plans to build.
Spring lovin' ... Guy Sebastian and Olivia Newton-John
rehearse for the Olivia Newton-John and Friends concert.
