Quand Olivia Newton-John devait être présentée au King ELVIS après l'un de ses concerts .. celui-ci a du partir à cause d'une urgence .. RDV manqué !
Olivia Newton-John and the King (almost)
Olivia Newton-John reminisces about the day she met the King in Las Vegas, almost.
That was the music magazine Creme interviewing Olivia Newton-John in 1974 – just after her American breakthrough and on the eve of her debut in the show-business mecca, then the Vegas of Sinatra and Elvis and Streisand.
She laughs at the memory. "It was huge. I was terrified, I remember that. I remember I had my little white dress, my little white lace dress. It was very scary."
Perhaps even more intimidating, if incredibly flattering: the King himself was covering one of her early country hits – If You Love Me, Let Me Know. She was invited to see Elvis's show and to meet him afterwards.
"I went with Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber," Newton-John recalls. "I went backstage and Elvis was supposed to come and meet us. But something happened ... he had an emergency and he had to leave."
She mock-gasps at the memory. "It was one of those 'Almost!' moments."
