Olivia Newton-John – Snoqualmie WA : August 25th 2016

So tonight wasn’t a night of head banging heavy metal rock, but a night of soft, beautiful soft rock with Olivia Newton-John at the Mountain View Terrace at Snoqualmie Casino.

First of all all, what a top notch, first class venue this was. This was the first time I had been to this particular venue and I was very impressed with everything about it…the size was intimate, the sound was incredible, a beautiful view and the choice of food and drinks were beyond what is typically available at concert venues (and the prices were reasonable). I would certainly look forward to seeing a show here in the future.

Olivia came on a little after 7:00pm opening with two of my favorites Suddenly and Xanadu followed by an amazing set of hits of songs that I hadn’t heard in many, many years. When she started singing Have You Never Been Mellow, it brought me straight back to my preteen childhood of 1975. Of course the crowd completely went crazy with the set of songs from the movie Grease, You’re the One That I Want, Hopelessly Devoted to You, Summer Nights and We Go Together. She wrapped her her show a little before 9:00pm with a very beautiful version of Over the Rainbow from the film The Wizard of Oz.

She put on a simply wonderful show and sounded and looked great.
