Last Sunday 10 March in Cardiff, Wales, Olivia Newton-John began her UK Tour, the very first one since more than 30 years.
The former UK Eurovision representative performed a great number of her hits along the years, from her country period to Grease and Xanadu, and some more recent material.
Surprisingly, she also performed a full version of her Eurovision entry, Long, live love, reminding the audience that she represented the UK with that song in Brighton. “I think I have never performed the song since then“, she declared. Right after, Olivia Newton-John also sang a piece of Angel eyes, the song that came second in the national selection in 1974. She said that this one was her favorite. I didn’t win but came 4th, she added. Together with her female backing singer, ONJ performed part of that year’s winning entry, Waterloo, by Abba.
Olivia’s British Tour goes on with concerts in Bornemouth, London, Brighton, Birmingham and Manchester. According to the offficial website of the artist, the Glasgow concert is cancelled.
