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.”
