More than 40 years after Olivia Newton-John and John Travolta starred together in the 1978 hit musical Grease, the pair reunited to reprise their iconic roles. The reunion took place at the Coral Sky Amphitheater in West Palm Beach, Florida, at the first ever “Meet ‘n Grease” sing-along.
During the event, the audience was treated to a Q & A with Newton-John and Travolta who both donned their signature Grease looks. 71-year-old Newton-John, who played Sandy in the film, sported skin-tight leather pants and a bedazzled leather jacket. Travolta, now 65, also wore all black and even showed his popular ‘greaser’ hairstyle.
But, perhaps the highlight of the night was when Travolta sang a portion of “Sandy” and Newton-John sang a snippet of “Hopelessly Devoted to You.” Travolta also took the stage with some of his fellow greasers and audience members a performance of “Greased Lightnin’.
Prior to the sing-along, Newton-John took to Instagram to share her excitement about being back with her old co-star. In the photo, Olivia is wearing another look from Grease….an ankle length yellow skirt, white undershirt, and yellow cardigan. Travolta, wearing all black including his leather jacket from the film, holds Newton-John’s hand as they make their way to the sing-along. She captioned the photo, “First time in costume since we made the movie ! So excited!!”
