  • Olivia Newton John



Olivia Newton-John comes to Mayo Performing Arts Center on Tuesday, April 11, at 8 p.m.

Tickets are $49-$109.

Olivia Newton-John's appeal is timeless. With a career spanning more than five decades she remains a vibrant, creative individual adored by fans around the globe. Enjoy a night of hits such as "Hopelessly Devoted to You," "Physical," "Have You Never Been Mellow," Summer Nights" and more.

With more than 100 million albums sold, Olivia Newton-John's successes include four Grammys, numerous Country Music, American Music and Peoples Choice Awards, an Emmy Award, 10 No. 1 hits and over 15 top 10 singles. In 1978, her co-starring role with John Travolta in "Grease" catapulted Olivia into super-stardom and to date remains the most successful movie musical of all time.

With a career spanning more than five decades she is still a vibrant, creative individual adored by fans across the world. Throughout her career, the much-loved star has held many humanitarian and environmental causes close to her heart. Olivia served as Goodwill Ambassador to the United Nations Environment Programme, was the co-founder of Children's Health Environmental Coalition (now Healthy Child, Healthy World) and, in 1992 she created National Tree Day in Australia, which is responsible for planting more than 10 million trees since its beginning. In 2008 she married "Amazon John" Easterling and together they are spreading the word about the importance of preserving the Rainforest by serving on the board of the ACEER Organization (ACEER.org). With her life today focusing on health and wellness, she and her husband are voices for natural therapies and products like Amazon/Trivita, a leading wellness company.

Most recently she co-founded One Tree Per Child, an international school initiative with the goal of having every child under the age of ten plant at least one tree. In keeping with her wellness efforts, Olivia also is a very proud co-owner of the award winning Gaia Retreat and Spa in the Hinterlands of New South Wales, Australia. "Gaia is a place of total relaxation and one of my favorite places that I like to go to refresh, renew and restore my mind, body and soul," says Olivia.

In 1992, Olivia was diagnosed with breast cancer. Her personal triumph against cancer led her to announce her partnership with the Austin Health and the creation of the Olivia Newton-John Cancer and Wellness Centre (ONJCWC) in her hometown of Melbourne, Australia. After nearly 10 years of fundraising close to $200 million, the ONJCWC opened its doors in 2012. The ONJCWC provides a comprehensive range of services and facilities for cancer treatment, education, training and research as well as a dedicated wellness center (oliviaappeal.com).

"It has been my dream to create a healing place, within the hospital grounds, a sanctuary of peace, beauty and relaxation for cancer patients," says Olivia regarding the Wellness Centre. In 2014, the Olivia Newton-John Cancer Research Institute, a not-for-profit medical research institute embedded within the ONJCWC, was launched.

Continuing her efforts to create breast health and cancer awareness, Olivia launched the Liv Aid, a breast self-examination aid that assists women to exercise breast self-exams correctly. Olivia credits her own breast self-exam as the first step to her eventual diagnosis of breast cancer. Now 22 years later, (and cancer free), she has become a passionate advocate in creating awareness for early detection and encouraging women to take a more active role in their breast health.
