Olivia Newton-John is planning to scale down her performing schedule to devote more time to a cancer facility in her native Australia.
The singer, a breast cancer survivor, helped launch the multi-million-dollar Olivia Newton-John Cancer and Wellness Centre at the Austin Hospital in Melbourne last year.
"We've been working on it a long time, it's been a 10-year vision and nine years fundraising, and we're just delighted (it is opening)," she said. Newton-John has been playing shows in recent months and is scheduled to perform concerts in the U.K. beginning in March, but she has now revealed she wants to take time out of touring to focus on the cancer facility.
"The British tour is the last leg -- I did a 35-city tour in America and went to Asia," she told the Daily Express. "Then I'm going to slow down on touring. I'm not sure if I will do any more, maybe do a Vegas thing because it is more in one place. I'll see. It will definitely be the last tour for a while and maybe always. Now I want to concentrate on the hospital."
