Olivia Newton-John presents smaller acoustic concerts in Everett and Tacoma Feb. 16 & 17

by MK Scott - SGN Contributing Writer

After a sold-out show at Snoqualmie Casino this past August, Olivia Newton-John returns to the Northwest next week for a smaller acoustic-style show to promote her newest album, Liv On. Joining her for the concerts are her two dear friends, Amy Sky and Beth Nielsen Chapman, who appear on the album with her.

The shows will be held on Feb 16th (8-10pm) at the Historic Everett Theatre (2911 Colby Avenue, Everett - http://www.historiceveretttheatre.org/) and on Feb 17th (7:30pm) at the Broadway Center for the Performing Arts, Tacoma's Pantages Theater (901 Broadway, Tacoma - http://www.broadwaycenter.org/)



In the following excerpt of an interview I had with Olivia Newton-John last summer, Olivia talks about her newest album, Liv On. (The full interview appeared in the August 19, 2016 edition of the SGN - http://www.sgn.org/sgnnews44_34/page21.cfm)

MK Scott: Olivia, thanks for joining us! First, I wanted to congratulate you on your 50th year in show business.

Olivia Newton-John: Oh, thank you! Yea!

MK: It's gone by so quickly!

ONJ: I'm very lucky; it has for me, I don't know about you?!

MK: Well, especially since it's been almost 40 years since Grease, and I remember that so well!

ONJ: Yes, yes, it's been a long time since that as well; it's all been a wonderful great journey!

MK: And you're coming to Seattle. We're looking forward to that.

ONJ: Me, too! I love Seattle, love Seattle; it's one of my favorite places, and the San Juan Islands.

MK: Awesome, and you also have a new album called Liv On (how appropriate!) out.

ONJ: Yes, it came out on September 30th, that I recorded with my dear friends Amy Sky and Beth Chapman, who are wonderful singer/song writers, who are dear longtime friends of mine. And we wrote an album. I lost my sister three years ago to cancer and it was a difficult time, and I wrote a song for her kind of as my way of expressing how I felt about losing her and I miss her. So I called my friend Amy Skye who produced my Grace and Gratitude album and asked if she would help me finish it, and we got talking about loss and grief and how these things started our music really for people going through that. She had just lost her mother and Beth, we knew, had lost her husband not so many weeks before and [Beth] had written a wonderful song called 'Sand and Water' about that time, a beautiful song that I've also sung. So I thought it would be wonderful to create a trio of women to sing about these things that are so important about grief and how you get to the other side, how you move on, which is the name of the title, title of the album rather, and so we wrote these songs and we also re-recorded songs of ours that have been successful. Beth re-recorded 'Sand and Water,' Amy re-recorded a song that was a hit called 'I'll Take Care of You' and I recorded, re-recorded 'Grace and Gratitude' and the rest are all new songs and they kind of take you on a journey through grief and re-birth. Really it's - I'm really excited about this album, I'm very proud of it.



Catch Olivia Newton-John's return to the Puget Sound area along with Amy Sky and Beth Nielsen Chapman for an acoustic-only show celebrating their new album, Liv On.
