Celebration of life
The memorial is supposed to be a celebration of Olivia’s life by family, friends and fans. It is expected that many of her family and friends as well as members from the general public will attend.
Singer and actor Delta Goodrem is scheduled for a musical tribute to her idol and and mentor, just like she did at this year’s G’Day USA Gala.
There will also be a live stream from the event so her fans from all over the world can attend digitally. The link to the event will be made public at a later date on the website of the Victorian government.
Tickets to the event are free, but there is a limit of two tickets per booking.
In lieu of flowers and at the request of Dame Olivia’s family, memorial tributes may be made in the form of contributions to the Wellness Programs at the Olivia Newton-John Cancer Wellness and Research Centre.
