CATOOSA – Internationally recognized four-time Grammy Award-winning singer, actress and philanthropist Olivia Newton-John is coming March 22 to the The Joint inside Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Tulsa.

Tickets start at $45 and go on sale Jan. 18.

With a career spanning more than five decades with more than 100 million albums sold, her successes include four Grammys; numerous Country Music, American Music, Billboard and People’s Choice Awards; an Emmy Award; 10 No. 1 hits; and more than 15 top 10 singles. She recently scored another No. 1 hit, this time on the Billboard Dance Club Songs chart with her daughter Chloe Lattanzi – becoming the first mother/daughter duo to top this chart. In 1978, her co-starring role with John Travolta in “Grease” catapulted Olivia into superstardom and to date remains the most successful movie musical of all time.

Throughout her career, she has held humanitarian and environmental causes close to her heart. She 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. Most recently she co-founded One Tree Per Child, an international school initiative with the goal of having every child under the age of 10 plant at least one tree.

In 1992, Olivia was diagnosed with breast cancer. Her personal journey with cancer led her to announce her partnership with the Austin Health and the creation of the Olivia Newton-John Cancer Wellness & Research Centre in her hometown of Melbourne, Australia. The center, which opened its doors in 2012, provides a comprehensive range of services and facilities for cancer treatment, education, training and research as well as a dedicated wellness center.

She recently finished her three-year Las Vegas residency “Summer Nights” at the Flamingo.

Her latest recording, “LIV ON,” a collaborative CD with friends Beth Nielsen Chapman and Amy Sky intended for those who wish to transcend loss while walking a journey toward newfound meaning and hope, was recently released to critical acclaim.
