John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John are back as Danny and Sandy after more than 40 years after Grease‘s release. They’re the ones that we want but you better head to Florida this weekend if you want to see them!
Travolta, 65, and Newton-John, 71, reunited and dressed up as the iconic lovebirds during the Meet n’ Grease sing-along event at the Coral Sky Amphitheater in West Palm Beach, Florida on Friday.
Newton-John shared a photo showing the actress wearing a yellow cardigan and matching skirt like the one she wore in the 1978 film, while Travolta wore an all-black ensemble complete with a leather jacket.
“First time in costume since we made the movie,” Newton-John captioned the candid snapshot. “So excited!!”
Later in the evening, Newton-John ditched the “good girl” outfit for a leather jacket and black leggings. Newton-John joined Travolta for a Q&A with fans following the sing-along.
Travolta and Newton-John are scheduled to make an appearance at the Meet n’ Grease event in Tampa on Dec. 14 and Jacksonville on Dec. 15.
Recently, Newton-John received back her original movie leather jacket from a fan who had paid over $200,000 for the item. The movie memorabilia was recently returned to the star to put on permanent display at the Melbourne, Australia-based research institute.
“The odds of beating a recurring cancer using the newest emerging therapies is a thousand-fold greater than someone appearing out of the blue, buying your most famous and cherished icon, and returning it to you, which is what I’m going to do right now,” the media tech entrepreneur who bought the jacket told Newton-John in an emotional video.
“This jacket belongs to you and the collective soul of those who love you. Those for whom you are the soundtrack of their lives. It should not sit in a billionaire’s closet for country club bragging rights.”
“For this reason, I humbly and respectfully return it to its rightful owner, which is you,” the man, who wished to remain anonymous, said. “Godspeed for a quick recovery.”
Newton-John founded the ONJ Cancer Centre during her first battle in 1992. She overcame cancer again in 2013, but in May 2017, she was told cancer had metastasized and spread to her bones.
