Bank Holiday!



London City North

Yet again, its a long weekend in Great Britain as we celebrate the Summer with another Bank Holiday.

It is extremely important that you to rush down to the local supermarket and invest in lashings of delicious cold beer as the mercury is set to soar!    But hurry! stocks are limited because I've just come back from shopping.

Join us in London City throughout this wickedly hot long weekend!





Johnny Cash on Saturday



There are few recording artists who are considered an example of  'cool' throughout their careers and remain there long after their death, but Johnny Cash is one such person.

The American singer-songwriter was one of the top selling music artists of all time, selling more than 90 million records worldwide.

Drug and alcohol abuse featured prominently in his early career until he met and fell in love with June Carter, who was independently famous as part of the bible singing Carter Family.  Cash said he had an epiphany when meeting Carter and his devotion for her made him clean up his habits and embrace the teachings of the Lord.   (Everyone say Hallelujah!)

Johnny Cash is best know for songs, Hurt, A Boy Named Sue, Ghost-riders, Folsom Prison Blues, Ring of Fire, When The Man Comes Around, Jackson and Walk The Line.

He is appearing as a solo act for the first time ever in London City with a brand new show on Saturday and you are invited to spend some time with this great icon.

The party starts at 12pm SLT (8pm UK), with the concert an hour later at 1pm SLT.

A tribute to Glen Campbell - Saturday




Glen Campbell's career spans over 50 years.  He is perhaps one of the best known Country singers of all time, with hits, Gentle On My Mind, Galveston, Wichita Lineman, By The Time I Get to Phoenix and Rhinestone Cowboy.

In 2011 he announced that after many years of suffering short term memory loss, it was in fact the effects of Alzheimer's disease and that his ability to perform and record music was coming to an end.

Throughout 2012 and 2013, Glen Campbell performed a worldwide Goodbye tour for all his fans to enjoy his music one last time. 

Join us here in London City at 12pm SL (8pm UK) this Saturday for a Concert, celebrating the career of the Rhinestone Cowboy as he rides off into the sunset.

Emmylou Harris Concert



Emmylou Harris is an American singer and songwriter.

Back in the 60s she was spotted by Gram Parsons who recognized her special talent of introducing harmonies that the song writers had overlooked.  After Gram's untimely and bizarre death, Emmylou went solo and carved her own career.

She has recorded with Bob Dylan, John Denver, Dolly Parton, Linda Ronstadt, Roy Orbison, Neil Young and most recently toured with Mark Knopfler.

In 1995 she diverged from country for a new Indy-style sound for her album "Wrecking Ball", which was panned by critics as career suicide, and yet sold more then 5 million copies.  Since then Emmylou has periodically, continued to dip her toes into this unique style of music.

She went on to win 13 Grammy's and was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 2008.

Emmylou Harris appears in London City on Saturday.   The party begins at 12pm SL time (8pm UK) with the concert an hour later at 1pm SL time.
