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.

Much excitement that Olivia was doing a duet with Guy Sebastian.

Last night a Concert update thread on Guy's forum grew to 28 pages long of discussion within 2 or 3 hours. It was very exciting to get updates from people who were actually at the concert for fans waiting on the forum for all the great concert news as it happened!

A photo was taken of Olivia on the red carpet - she looked beautiful and glowing with her new husband!

A friend of mine went to the show. So jealous! Livvy had a great line-up of guests ... including my fave - Guy.
