    The 65-year-old Grease star has snagged her very own Las Vegas residency at the Flamingo. The show will be called Summer Nights and will debut on Apr. 8 (tickets go on sale Feb. 7).

    "I am thrilled to be able to call Las Vegas home for a while," Newton-John says in an announcement released earlier today. "I have performed here many times through the years and have had nothing but wonderful memories and I look forward to even more fun at the Flamingo. I am especially thrilled that a portion of every ticket sold will benefit the Olivia Newton-John Cancer and Wellness Centre."

    According to the release, the show will include an eight-piece band and "will take fans on a journey through the celebrated singer, actress, songwriter and philanthropist's life and career." Newton-John and John Travolta's hit film Grease will also play a significant role in the production.

    Among the show's set list are Newton-John hits like "Have You Never Been Mellow," "Let Me Be There," "If You Love Me Let Me Know" and "I Honestly Love You," as well some of her favorites from Grease, like "Hopelessly Devoted to You," "You're the One That I Want" and "Summer Nights."

    The show will also include songs from her movie Xanadu in addition to her hit 1980s anthem "Physical."

    Newton-John follows Britney Spears, who began her Las Vegas residency show Piece of Me back in December. Other celebs who have shows in Sin City include Shania Twain, Faith Hill and Tim McGraw, and Céline Dion.
