A Pictorial Of Olivia Newton John Performing in Las Vegas

We honestly loved Olivia Newton John and I proved it October 2016 when I went to see her in Vegas. It was a pretty darn good show.

Nobody would claim the 100 Million selling Olivia is a great artist as such, but she makes up for her middle of the road blandness with a gift for sweetness. She less understates and more draws you in with a gentleness, it is the Sandy in her, and when she brings out the Sandy as bad girl, during “Physical” it is as cheerfully goofy as when she walks off with her “Physical” fatty at the end of the video.

On stage, Olivia is as professional as humanly possible: opening with a rousing “Magic”, she performed for 90 minutes, with a pleasant voice guy taking on the various Travoltas and the back up singers sharing the spotlight from time to time. It was held in the “Donny And Marie Showroom” and a finer meeting of venue and white bread it is hard to imagine. This was the 70s for born again Christians, G rated pleasantries, “Have You Ever Been Mellow” as timeless pleasure center and Olivia as a Grace Kelly meets country girl.
