Newton-John Postpones Las Vegas Residency
(Las Vegas, NV) — Olivia Newton-John is making adjustments to her schedule after learning that a member of her family has cancer.
The singer says her sister Rona Newton-John has been diagnosed with brain cancer, which has led her to postpone her proposed Las Vegas residency.
Olivia, who has successfully battled breast cancer, says in a statement that she’s “very aware of the importance of love, support and family during this journey” Rona is beginning, and she intends to be there as Rona battles her illness.
“The Las Vegas Sun” says Olivia was expected to announce her Vegas engagement later this month.
She was reportedly planning to launch a show at The Flamingo that would be staged during breaks in Donny and Marie Osmond’s schedule.
