Olivia and Zamu Showcase

Drove down to Phoenix to taken in the Zamu Tour April 26th. John Easterling founded of Amazon Herb Company gave an informative presentation on his new product ZAMU. For more information on this product as well as the rest of his Amazon Rainforest product I have place a link to their website.

The following is for my Olivia Newton-John friends.

Good friend Cori and I attended this stop. The presentation last about 2 hours and afterwards John and Olivia had a meet and greet with the attendees. Cori had Olivia sign a Nashville Poster and 2000 Olympics CD. They chatted and both were laughing and John was standing back and enjoying the two of them has fun.

When I went up to greet Olivia and John, John said “Hi, Rolf” I said “Hi John”. Olivia winked at me and said “Whats in here?” as she reached for the bag I had place on the table. I think John was a little shocked that Olivia went straight for the bag. No “hello” or “how are you”. I told that I had her Godiva biscuits and Easter eggs for her and John and cookies for their two dogs, Jack and Sherlock” She said “cookies for the dogs? That’s soo cute.” She told John “he always brings me goodies”.

I asked her if she wouldn’t mind signing a couple of things. No Problem. She signed Suzanne’s favorite CD – Grace and Gratitude and a photo for one of her co-workers.

While she was signing we chatted about a few things but mostly about doing another Vegas concert and she said maybe in 2010. So I am hoping.

Olivia at the Ryman

We just got back from Nashville today Feb. 27th. Suzanne and I took a quick trip back east to see Olivia Newton John in concert. I haven’t seen her in concert for several years and have never been to the historical Ryman for a concert, so when this show was announced it was a given that I would be there.

All the effort to get to this concert was worth it. Olivia was in perfect shape, and her vocals were great too. She turned 60 last year but could pass for 45. She sang all of hits and even had a special guest, Barry Gibb, join her on stage. What an amazing show.

She is one artist who realizes that her fans have changed her life and she is gives all of her gratitude back to them.

Having been a fan of hers for 35 years I am happy to be seeing her in concert one more time. But if she performs close to Vegas again I will be there again.
