Coldplay and Natalie Imbruglia performed Grease hit ‘Summer Nights’ in tribute to the late Olivia Newton-John at Wembley Stadium on Tuesday night (16.08.22).

Frontman Chris Martin, 45, channelled his inner John Travolta to take on the role of Danny from the 1978 rom-com musical, while Natalie, 47, became fellow Australian Olivia's alter ego Sandy for the acoustic duet.

Jacob Collier also joined in on vocals.

The duo also performed Natalie's 1997 hit 'Torn' at the packed-out stadium in London.

Actress-and-singer Olivia sadly died last week, aged 72, more than 30 years after being diagnosed with breast cancer.

Her co-star, Travolta, posted a tribute on instagram:

Olivia will be laid to rest with a state memorial service in Australia after her family accepted the offer days following her tragic death.

Speaking on 'A Current Affair', her niece Tottie Goldsmith confirmed: "We will [accept], on behalf of not just our family, but I think Australia needs it. She was so loved."
"I think our country needs it so we’re going to accept it."

A venue and date is yet to be revealed.
