Four-time Grammy winner Olivia Newton-John is to tour the UK next year to celebrate 40 years in music.
The gigs will be her first series of shows since 1978.
With a fan base across the world, Olivia Newton-John's career spans more than four decades and has seen her sell more than 100 million albums.
Her hit single Physical was recently named by Billboard Magazine at number six in their Top 100 Songs Of All Time list and the magazine named it The Sexiest Song of All Time.
Later this year, Newton-John and John Travolta have reunited for the first time in more than 30 years for a special Christmas release.
Proceeds from This Christmas will be donated equally to their respective charities, the Olivia Newton-John Cancer and Wellness Centre and the Jett Travolta Foundation.
The album features special guests Barbra Streisand, Tony Bennett and the Count Basie Orchestra, James Taylor, Kenny G and Sir Cliff Richard.
