Mackay and Whitsunday Life

Baby, I Don’t Care, You’re The One That I Want

Legends Elvis and Olivia Newton-John to Perform at Airlie Beach Hotel

Over two days of powerful music, the Airlie Beach Hotel is bringing two massive powerhouses to the Whitsundays.

This tribute show is unlike any other, with world class act Anita Spring as Dame Olivia Newton-John coming to Airlie Beach for the first time ever and performing alongside Brendon Chase as Elvis Presley.

The pair will each be guests to the other’s headline.

Brendon Chase as Elvis Presley is up first, with special guest appearance, Anita Spring’s Olivia Newton John, on Saturday, May 27.

Audiences can’t help but fall in love with the magic of the performance, of the ‘jailhouse rock’ and the ‘burning love’ that is Elvis.

You will ‘always be on my mind’ with powerful vocals and expressive and extravagant costuming.

This Elvis tribute is an authentic show delivering the best of Australian talent, with Brendon himself being awarded the Best Elvis Tribute Artist in multiple competitions.

His enigmatic show will shine even further with the special appearance of Olivia Newton-John and her powerful vocals and fantastic stage presence.

“Elvis never sang on stage with anyone else because Col Parker didn't think the fans wanted it,” Brendon said.

“However, in my opinion, the concept is brilliant.

“Who better to sing with than one of Australia's most well-known and talented artists?

“It also helps that Anita, who performs Oliva's Tribute, is one of the best in the business.”

Next up, is Anita Spring, as Olivia Newton-John, with special guest Elvis making an appearance.

Anita pays homage to the star, in her Forever Olivia show, performing at the Airlie Beach Hotel on Sunday, May 28.

Anita brings her all, performing all of Olivia’s biggest hits, from ‘Physical’ to ‘I Honestly Love You’.

Her seasoned and powerful country music vocals lend themselves well to the star’s hits, reminiscing and remembering Olivia in a touching and beautiful tribute performance that all Olivia Newton-John fans will appreciate.

She will leave audiences hopelessly devoted and suspended in time.

"The audience should come with their voices ready to be exercised!” Anita said.

“They will be singing along from the very start to so many classic songs we have all come to love over many decades.
