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.

John Denver on Saturday



In a brand new show, this week we feature the magical voice of John Denver in Concert.

Denver known for such songs as, Annies Song, Rocky Mountain High, Perhaps Love, Country Roads, Calypso and many more shot to fame in late 1960s as the lead singer in The Kingston Trio.  He went solo in the 1970s and his primary focus of songwriting was about nature, especially in his beloved Colorado.   A complicated man with many inner demons, Denver battled both alcoholism and aggression.  He died when his experimental aircraft crashed in 1997.  He had lost his pilots licence six months prior to the accident.

Party in the Park starts on Saturday at 12pm SL time (8pm UK) and John Denver will be on stage an hour later at 1pm SL.

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.

Kenny Rogers on Saturday



A brand new show for Saturday.  For the first time in London City, the legendary Kenny Rogers in concert!

Kenny Rogers, born 1938, after appearing in many bands, launched his solo career in 1976.
He first became famous in 1977 with the single Lucille and on the strength of that, his first album imaginatively entitled Kenny Rogers became a number 1 selling album in the States.

More hits soon followed with, Ruby, Coward of The County, Lady, The Gambler and then he hit stratospheric fame with Dolly Parton in 1983 with the platinum selling Islands In The Stream, which was recently voted the most popular country hit single of all time.

In November 2017, Kenny, now suffering from severe mobility issues due to unsuccessful hip replacement surgery which has seen him largely confined to a wheelchair in recent years, decided to hang up his hat and retire from Showbiz.

We invite you to enjoy an evening with Kenny Rogers as he plays London City on Saturday.
The party starts at 12pm SL time (8pm UK), with the Concert an hour later at 1pm SL time.

Premier: 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 for the first time ever in London City on Saturday.   The party begins at 12pm SL time (8pm UK) with the concert an hour later at 1pm SL time.
