Cliff Richard may stage Las Vegas show with Olivia Newton-John

Sir Cliff Richard is reportedly in talks with Olivia Newton-John to stage a series of shows together in Las Vegas.

Over the past six decades, the 71-year-old singer has had hits all over the world and has sold over 250 million records worldwide. But he has so far failed to crack the American market (although his single ‘Living Doll’ promised much when it reached No. 30 on the US charts in 1959).

Sir Cliff is hoping that a residency in Las Vegas will increase his chances of success with US audiences.

“Acts like Elvis and Little Richard were the reason I started, so it would mean a great deal to have at least one success over there,” Sir Cliff recently told Women’s Weekly magazine. “I’ve had nine Top 30 hits in America but never an identity. If I could just have one big hit I’d feel so much satisfaction.”

He added: “Olivia Newton-John and I have talked about joining forces to find a Las Vegas venue to perform at. Elton John recently told me: ‘I can’t understand why you never cracked it’. And I can’t either. It’s the land of rock ‘n’ roll – like Wimbledon is to tennis.”

Best of Frank Sinatra’s Las Vegas years on new CD

February 6, 2011

Visit our main website at:

In the early 1960s, Las Vegas helped to refuel Frank Sinatra’s career, while Sinatra in turn helped to boost the city’s international image.

Now, some of the most memorable performances from the legendary Sinatra-Vegas relationship are being made available on Frank Sinatra: Best of Vegas – a collection of 14 live recordings set for release on February 15, 2011.

The single CD captures Sinatra in concert at the Sands, Caesars Palace and the Golden Nugget in Las Vegas between 1961 and 1987. The collection is a distillation of highlights from Sinatra: Vegas, a five-disc boxed set (4 CD/1 DVD) of live recordings released by Reprise Records in 2006.

Classic tracks include: ‘The Lady Is A Tramp’ (from The Sands, 1961), ‘Pennies From Heaven’ (from The Golden Nugget, 1987) and ‘Theme from New York, New York’ (from Caesars Palace, 1982).

“From his debut at the Desert Inn in September 1951, no entertainer was ever more synonymous with the city of Las Vegas than Frank Sinatra,” says Charles Pignone, author of The Sinatra Treasures, in his comprehensive liner notes for the new CD. “It has been said that next to legalised gambling, nothing has been more beneficial and profitable to Las Vegas than Frank Sinatra.”
