Olivia Newton-John - One Woman's Journey Tour 1999

Photo: Kim Bieszczak

Olivia delighted fans in the spring with the announcement of her plans to do a thirty-date tour of the United States, building on the success of her three-date event around New Year's Eve.

Her band was the John Farnham band following on from the massive success of her 1998 tour of Australia with John Farnham in  the Main Event concert series.

She was rapturously welcomed everywhere she went, her beautiful voice wowed fans new and old - many of the shows received rave reviews. In a groundbreaking move, one of her shows was televised live on the Internet on the 1st September which proved so popular the broadcast had to be repeated on the 5th. Many of the fans who couldn't make the shows managed to catch a a look in that way. Here is the lowdown on the entire show - the dates, the pictures and the reviews.

Of course you had to be there to enjoy all the electricity of the night, but we hope this page bring those of us who couldn't make it a flavor of the event, and kindles great memories for those of us who made it to one or more of Olivia's fantastic performances in 1999!
