Share This:

More than 40 years after John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John co-starred in the musical film, Grease, the pair will perform a series of sing-a-longs in December. The concerts, which the legends announced on their social media platforms on Oct. 22, will take place over three nights in Florida.

Tickets for the events are available now via at Ticketmaster. The three performances, which will include Q-and-A’s, will take place on Dec. 13 in West Palm Beach, Dec. 14 at the MidFlorida Credit Union Amphitheatre in Tampa, and Dec. 15 at Daily’s Place in Jacksonville.

The event listing notes: It’s the Rydell High School reunion event of the year when Grease stars John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John reunite for a special “Meet ‘N’ Grease” movie Sing-A-Long event. There will be a massive screening of the Grease Sing-A-Long film, followed by a special, intimate Q&A with Travolta and Newton-John. All audience members are encouraged to come dressed as your favorite character from Grease.

The film arrived on June 16, 1978. The first single released from the soundtrack was a duet with the film’s stars: “You’re the One That I Want” ultimately reached #1 on July 29. [It’s one of the best-selling singles in history, with a reported 15 million copies sold.]

The pair scored a second single, “Summer Nights,” which helped the 2-LP to claim the #1 spot on the album sales chart for 16 weeks.

The film, produced by Robert Stigwood and Allan Carr, set many box-office records and became the highest-grossing musical ever, topping 1965’s The Sound of Music. (It remained the #1 live action movie musical until 2012.) It’s earned $396 million on a budget of a reported $6 million.

Newton-John, who turned 71, on September 26, has had a reoccurrence of cancer, and continues to fight it. On Nov. 2, she is auctioning over 200 iconic items from her recording and film career, including costumes and accessories from Grease. Travolta turned 65 on February 18.
