Olivia Newton-John & John Farnham Announce Joint Tour



If too much classic (and cheesy) Australian pop is barely enough, prepare for double helpings as ageless icons John Farnham and Olivia Newton-John go on  tour together next April, accompanied by a 60-piece orchestra.

Their co-headlining Two Strong Hearts tour will take place in arenas and wineries across the country over two weeks; starting April 4 in Western Australia's Margaret River, then Melbourne, Adelaide, Brisbane, the Hunter Valley and finishing in Sydney on April 19.

Newton-John, 66, and Farnham, 65 - arguably Australia's most successful international and local artists respectively - will play together and separately on the Paul Dainty-promoted tour, which is in effect a reprise of their wildly popular The Main Event extravaganza - minus one important element. That 1998 tour, which also featured Anthony Warlow (who is not involved this time) produced a quadruple platinum DVD and 1999's biggest-selling album. It was also televised.

Our Livvy teased the announcement on Twitter, saying: "Do we dare to dream again?" Farnham (who is on Twitter, but apparently busy) didn't answer.

Warlow (who isn't on Twitter) was represented by fans, who have already been complaining on social media that he isn't involved. But Warlow's non-involvement may fuel speculation about possible involvement - at some level - with the planned 2015 Broadway run for Doctor Zhivago. Warlow, who has yet to crack Broadway, played the lead role in the ill-fated Australian performance.

Big gig observers will wryly note that Farnham has been busy retiring for 12 years now – in 2002 he announced his The Last Time Tour. Nevertheless, the show is bound to be a special event for patriotic fans of the uber-ballad which, let's face it, includes most of us.

Telstra customers can buy pre-sale tickets for two days from next Wednesday, October 15. General sales begin at 10am on October 20.

Olivia Newton-John announces concert residency at Flamingo Las Vegas



OLIVIA NEWTON-JOHN ANNOUNCES LAS VEGAS RESIDENCY!

Get ready for some summer lovin’ and “have a blast” as Olivia Newton-John makes her way to Flamingo Las Vegas with her “Summer Nights” residency. Opening inside the Donny & Marie Showroom on Tuesday, April 8, the beloved internationally-renowned singer-actress will take audiences on a musical journey through her life in film and music.

Tickets go on sale Friday, Feb. 7 at 10 a.m. Members of Caesars Entertainment’s Total Rewards program will have access to an exclusive pre-sale from Wednesday, Feb. 5 at 10 a.m. to Thursday, Feb. 6 at 10 p.m. To join Total Rewards program for free, click here.

“I am thrilled to be able to call Las Vegas home for a while,” says Olivia. “I have performed here many times through the years and have had nothing but wonderful memories and I look forward to even more fun at the Flamingo. I am especially thrilled that a portion of every ticket sold will benefit the Olivia Newton-John Cancer and Wellness Centre.”

“We look forward to welcoming Olivia to Flamingo Las Vegas, where so many other iconic artists have performed,” said Eileen Moore, regional president of the famed center Strip resort. “She has such a broad appeal and you can count all of us here at Flamingo among her adoring fan base; she’s the ‘one that we want’ and we can’t wait for her to call Flamingo home.”

The production, featuring an eight-piece band, will take fans on a journey through the celebrated singer, actress, songwriter and philanthropist’s life and career. 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 is also proud to be the recipient of the Order of Australia honor and was bestowed the Order of the British Empire by the Queen. 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. Commemorating its 35th anniversary last year, Grease is sure to play a significant role in Olivia’s new show “Summer Nights.”

The show will be 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 favorites from Grease, “Hopelessly Devoted to You,” “You’re The One That I Want,” and of course, “Summer Nights.” Favorites and hits from her other movies, including Xanadu, as well as her ‘80s anthem and record breaking song “Physical,” will keep the room dancing, while new songs from her recent Billboard hit album Grace and Gratitude are sure to warm the hearts of the entire audience.

Set Sail With Olivia!




Special musical performances by a bevy of well-known rock and pop stars will be held on select Carnival cruise ships throughout 2014 as part of the inaugural Carnival LIVE Concert Series.  Chicago, Olivia Newton-John, Foreigner, Styx, REO Speedwagon and Kansas are among the many acts who will participate in the series, which will give vacationers the chance to see exciting onboard shows while visiting select ports during their trips.


The shows, which will start in April and run through December, will take place in the main lounges of eight cruise liners in these locations: Cozumel, Mexico; Nassau, the Bahamas; and Catalina Island, California.  The artists will come aboard the ships while they're docked and leave after their respective concerts.
