With a career spanning more than four decades and over 100 million albums sold, multiple Grammy Award winner Olivia Newton-John celebrates her 40th year in music with a three month North American concert tour from New York to California, from September 6 through December 16, 2012.
A vibrant, creative individual who is adored by fans around the world, Olivia remains an icon in both movie and music history, having been honored with four Grammy Awards, numerous Country Music, American Music and People’s Choice Awards, an Emmy Award, ten #1 hits including “Physical,” which topped the charts for ten consecutive weeks, and over 15 top 10 singles. (Billboard Magazine recently listed “Physical” at #6 on their Top 100 Songs Of All Time list and named it “The Sexiest Song of All Time”.) Olivia hit the Hot 100 chart once again with the dance remix of “Physical” that she recorded and performed with Jane Lynch on the hit series, “Glee.”
In 1978, her co-starring role with John Travolta in “Grease” catapulted Olivia into super-stardom. This film’s best-selling soundtrack featured the duets “You’re The One That I Want” and “Summer Nights,” with Travolta, as well as her mega-hit, “Hopelessly Devoted To You.” To date “Grease” remains the most successful movie musical in history. Her other feature film credits include “Toomorrow,” “Xanadu,” “Two Of A Kind,” “It’s My Party,” “Sordid Lives,” and “Score: A Hockey Musical.” Her latest film, “A Few Best Men,” has received critical acclaim around the world and is scheduled for a USA release in late 2012.
Adding author to her already impressive career, Olivia’s new cookbook, “LivWise: Easy Recipes for a Healthy, Happy Life” was recently released and all of her royalties will benefit the Olivia Newton-John Cancer and Wellness Centre (ONJCWC) in her hometown of Melbourne, Australia. As a breast cancer “thriver,” after nearly ten years of fundraising and building, Olivia is thrilled that the ONJCWC opened its doors to patients on July 2, 2012 – almost 20 years to the day from her own cancer diagnosis.
Upcoming recording projects for Olivia include a holiday CD and a CD featuring many of her hits as dance remixes, along with new brand new material.
