Get ready for some summer lovin’ and “have a blast” as Olivia Newton-John makes her way to Flamingo Las Vegas with her new show, “Summer Nights” beginning on April 8, 2014.
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.
In 1992, Olivia was diagnosed with breast cancer. Her personal triumph against cancer led her to announce her partnership with the Austin Health and the creation of the Olivia Newton-John Cancer and Wellness Centre (ONJCWC) in her hometown of Melbourne,
Australia. The ONJCWC provides a comprehensive range of services and facilities for cancer treatment, education, training and research as well as a dedicated wellness center. Olivia is thrilled that a portion of every ticket sold to her Flamingo shows will
benefit the ONJCWC.
Flamingo Las Vegas is proud to serve as the Las Vegas home for one of the world’s most beloved entertainers and philanthropists.
