Passenger Concert on Saturday



Passenger was originally a Brit folk/rock band formed in 2003.

When they split up in 2007, lead singer Mike Rosenberg continued his career as a solo artist under the name of Passenger, busking his way around Europe and appearing at fringe festivals.

Then suddenly in 2013 year he exploded onto the scene with three chart topping songs in quick succession,   Let her Go, The Wrong Direction and Holes.

Having written over 200 songs, Passenger is receiving the critical acclaim that eluded the band for so long. 

Party in the Park starts on Saturday at 12pm SL (8pm UK) with Passenger tribute band on stage an hour later.

New Show:: Queen + Adam Lambert



Poor Freddie left us for a higher plain in 1991 and ever since, the band Queen has hosted various guest artists including George Michael, to sing a variety of their songs in a somewhat ongoing eulogy to the late singer.

Back in 2014, Adam Lambert came to the attention of Brian May and Roger Taylor for his amazing vocal performance of Queen songs on XFactor USA, which Lambert went on to win.

Adam Lambert has enjoyed a reasonable career ever since, but has been catapulted into the stratosphere as Queen's new front man in various tours over the past five years.

We are hoping you will join us for a brand new show this Saturday, with all the classic Queen songs performed by Queen and Adam Lambert.  This is a brand new show, and we think you will love it.

Weekend Weather is here




Have you noticed that every time we are told to stay indoors, that the weather becomes amazing?

After a wishy-washy August, with the coldest temperatures ever recorded, September sees the return of the summer, with the best weather coming when the law changes (in the UK) on Monday and we can no longer hang out with our family and friends, unless we're unlucky enough to only have six.

That said, its going to be a scorcher of a weekend again, so we need to make the most of it, and our advice to you is for copious amounts of grog, music and snacks and to enjoy the parties here in London City as we continue the Birthday celebrations.

Dusty Springfield on Saturday



Perhaps one of the most iconic looks of the 1960's belongs to singer Dusty Springfield, with her white backcombed hair and thick eyeliner.  It was a look that so many have tried to emulate.

Dusty, hit the charts in 1963 with I Only Want To Be With You, and from that moment on both sides of the Atlantic, a star was born.  She followed her first hit up with many more, including Wishin' and Hopin', I Only Want To Be With You, I Just Don't Know What To Do With Myself, You Don't Have To Say You Love Me, and Son of A Preacher Man and many many more.

Dusty is appearing in London City on Saturday and the party starts at 12pm SL time (8pm UK), with the show an hour later at 1pm SL time.

Bank Holiday Eve



Artists impression of Second Life this weekend.

You know us Brits like our public holidays, and its been a couple of months since the last one!

So here comes 3 days of Weekend, or 4 if you wiggled it a bit and added to the Friday or Monday too.

Although the real life weather is looking more than a little bit crappy, with the odd hurricane, and some electrical storms thrown in for good measure, you can rest assured that the sun is still shining in London City.

Starting Friday, we have four days of weekend with all the clubs partying hard.  Immerse yourself in the virtual sunshine with us, grab a beer and lets party!

Dolly Parton, Saturday



In concert on Saturday: Dolly Parton, the Tribute show in London City.

Dolly Parton, was terribly poor for the first six minutes of her life, and then became wealthy beyond the dreams of Avarice for the next 70 years, but hasn't lost touch with her humble beginnings.

Partly because no one wants to hear songs about a billionaire with tax return problems, when poor and broken hearted sells better. Dolly has endured over the years by reinventing her image over and over.

Come party with us on Saturday from 12pm SL (8pm UK) with the concert an hour later at 1pm SL.

Substation and Worlds End



After a wonderful evening with Johnny Cash and June Carter Cash, what could possibly compete?
Substation at 11am SLT and Worlds End on the Beach at 1pm SLT, thats what!

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  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.

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.

The weekend weather is on its way!



RL London Forecast
This urgent newsflash is to remind you to get down to the off-licence or supermarket and stock up on essentials, such as beer, spirits, mixers and junk food.  This weekend is going to be super-heated and you will need lots and lots of grog to remain hydrated and happy whilst you party with us in London City.  Probably best to get some bottled water too, to wash it down with, even if it does taste like medicine.


The Beach in London City West - Party every Sunday at 1pm SL (9pm UK)

It's the weekend!



To think we were all grumbling about the rain and temperature only a week ago.  If ever there was a case of being careful what you wish for, it is tomorrows forecast.

Here in London we are set for 34c, which is around the mid 90's in old money, or closer to 100F indoors if you do not have aircon.

Being a responsible estate, we urge you to invest in copious amounts of grog for this coming weekend which is likely to be very thirsty work, with all the partying we will be doing.

We recommend Asda this week for their posh bottled beer offer and at only 42p a bottle, what's not to like?

A reminder to please drink responsibly, because I won't be, and you might need to get me home again afterwards.

Happy weekend, and here come's the Sun!



Update.. they got it wrong - and it's hotter than they thought
