Page 3 Profile: Olivia Newton-John, Singer
Thursday 25 October 2012
Hold on to the end, is that what she intends to do?
She does indeed. The Grease star is returning for her first UK concert tour since 1978. The Cambridge-born singer will perform in Cardiff, Birmingham and other cities next March. Her seven dates include a jaunt to London's Royal Albert Hall.
Has her voice held up?
2013 marks Newton-John's 40th year in the music industry, so it could be hard for the 64-year-old to hit the same notes she did in Hopelessly Devoted To You. In recent concert appearances, her voice was clearly a little thinner than it was, and her performance wasn't quite as effortless. But she can still sing incredibly well. Fans will surely flock to the gigs to hear her three UK number ones: You're The One That I Want, Xanadu, and Summer Nights.
Is she still acting?
She recently starred in A Few Best Men, a badly reviewed comedy film in which she played a politician's coke-addled wife, and made a guest appearance on Glee as an evil judge. She's also releasing a Christmas album with none other than John Travolta. "John and I have always connected," she said. "That's never gone away. When we're together, we have a good laugh and feel bonded to one another."
