Internationally-renowned singer-actress Olivia Newton-John was onsite Saturday night, August 9, 2014, at the Flamingo Las Vegas to reveal her brand new Madame Tussauds Hollywood wax figure before taking the stage for her wildly-successful “Summer Nights” headlining show.
In 1978, Olivia Newton-John’s co-starring role with John Travolta in Grease catapulted her into super-stardom and to date remains the most successful movie musical of all time. Madame Tussauds Hollywood is celebrating the iconic film by welcoming Olivia Newton-John’s wax figure, outfitted as her Grease character Sandy, into their attraction.
Olivia Newton-John’s wax figure can be seen at Madame Tussauds Las Vegas from Aug. 10 – Aug. 14 before heading to the Madame Tussauds Hollywood attraction.
