Guess Who’s Headed to Las Vegas Now?

Olivia Newton John is coming for you, Las Vegas! I only really know ‘Let’s Get Physical’ and all the songs from Grease, so I’d hardly call myself a fan, but still – a legend! She’s taking up residency at the Donnie and Marie Showroom at the Flamingo Hotel right on the strip, with the first show scheduled for April 8.

From Billboard:

“Grease” star Olivia Newton-John is headed to Las Vegas. The 65-year-old singer and actress announced a headlining residency Tuesday. She will perform 45 shows at the Donny and Marie Showroom at The Flamingo, starting April 8. Dates are scheduled through the summer.

Organizers say the show will feature “Grease” classics including “Hopelessly Devoted to You” and “You’re the One That I Want,” as well as Newton-John’s independent pop songs. The show will be called “Summer Nights.”

Oh God, it all sounds so tacky and I love it. The Flamingo is kinda shit, though. When I went to Vegas last summer, I stayed just down the street at the Paris (which was GORGEOUS) and half of the Flamingo seemed to be boarded up/falling apart. So weird.

In any case, would you go to see this? What do you think the average age of audience members will be?
