Olivia Newton-John returns to San Francisco for a rare one night only concert appearance on September 13 at SHN Golden Gate Theatre. This will be Newton-John's only Northern California appearance and her first concert in the City by the Bay in nearly a decade. Tickets go on sale Friday, June 29 at 10 AM.
With a career spanning more than four decades she is still a vibrant, creative individual that is adored by fans across the world. Olivia's U.S. album debut, "Let Me Be There," produced her first top ten single of the same name, with Olivia being honored by the Academy Of Country Music as Most Promising Female Vocalist and a Grammy Award as Best Country Vocalist. This proved to be only the beginning of a very exciting career.
With more than 100 million albums sold, Olivia's successes include 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. (In September 2008, Billboard Magazine listed "Physical" at #6 on their Top 100 Songs Of All Time list and in 2010 listed it as "The Sexiest Song of All Time".)
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," "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 in her hometown of Melbourne, Australia. As a breast cancer "thriver," Olivia is thrilled that the Centre will opens its doors to patients on July 2, 2012 – almost 20 years to the day from her own cancer diagnosis.
Olivia Newton John – One Night Only is produced by Rick Bartalini Presents.
