April 03, 2014
Olivia Newton-John is taking her iconic music to the Las Vegas Strip for a new residency at the Flamingo and ET was on hand for the official launch ceremony that included the singer riding in on the same convertible featured in her 1978 hit musical Grease.
The 65-year-old singer was decked out Wednesday in a black blazer, black-and-white striped shirt and leather pants while riding inside a 1956 "Greased Lightning" convertible en route to the Flamingo Las Vegas, where her new residency show "Summer Nights" officially kicks off April 8. Newton-John was also presented by city officials with the "key" to the Las Vegas Strip.
The show will take the audience on a musical journey through Newton-John's illustrious career, featuring hits from her early years including Have You Never Been Mellow and I Honestly Love You, as well some favorites from the musicals Grease and Xanadu.
"It's kind of my life through my music," Newton-John revealed about the new Vegas gig. "So starting with my country music, where I started in America -- through Xanadu, Grease, Physical, all the songs I'm known for -- and a few other ones, new ones."
She also said she’s excited to be performing at such an iconic Las Vegas landmark. "I love the Flamingo, it has a really nice atmosphere, kind of old world Vegas and the showroom is cozy and has booths that are good for the entertainers and the audience."
