The Totally Hot World Tour is the fourth concert tour (and first one to be worldwide) by English-born Australian pop singer Olivia Newton-John. It began in 1978 and lasted until December of that year, with shows in North America, Japan, Australia and Europe during that time, as she supported her album Totally Hot.

Background[edit]

The tour helped to consolidate the pop image of Newton-John after her outburst as the protagonist of the movie Grease and its well-received album Totally Hot. To date is the last tour of Newton-John to visit Europe. John Farrar was involved in this tour as a producer but did not play with the band. Labi Siffre was her support act during the UK leg of the tour
