Album review


John Farnham and Olivia Newton-John have a chemistry and friendship you just can’t fake. And zero egos.

Some stars wouldn’t let their signature hits and show-stopping anthems become duets.

But on this live souvenir of their recent joint tour you have Farnham getting Physical and ONJ even starts national anthem You’re the Voice.

The fact these two were having serious fun is not lost in the recorded translation. You also see new sides, like Farnham blitzing Over the Rainbow and Livvie cutting loose with rock wailing on Hit the Road Jack.

That’s another one of the joys here, we rarely get to hear Olivia live and from the divine thrills of Xanadu to the spine chills of I Honestly Love You it’s our loss. And both know they’re privileged to be singing Peter Allen’s Tenterfield Saddler.

On the actual duets, Grease favourites Summer Nights and You’re the One That I Want, Farnham slips into Travolta mode. You just wish there was a DVD to see the full effect of him in leather pants and dancing.

There’s the underrated No One Comes Close, Farnham sings Suddenly better than ONJ’s original duet partner Cliff Richard and Burn For You works as a duet (it’d probably work as death metal track).

As AC/DC don’t play it any more, Farnham ends with It’s a Long Way To the Top If You Wanna Rock and Roll. Even Livvie discovers there’s a touch of Bon Scott deep, deep inside as she does stadium pub rock work amid all the bagpipes and the audible joy of The Voice singing his favourite song. 

Welcome to double happiness. 


Sounds like: a place where nobody dared to go
In a word: physical

La tournée 2 Strong Hearts de John farnham et Olivia Newton-John a reçu des critiques dithyrambiques et fut un succès .. hautement mérité ! 
L'album qui résume les meilleurs moments de cette tournée devrait connaitre le même succès auprès des critiques australiens et du public qui s'est déplacé ! 

Espérons qu'un DVD voit le jour d'ici peu ... 

Only 1 day of waiting left! ‪#‎TwoStrongHeartsLive‬ is out tomorrow!
