Weekend in Review - -11 December



Hello kiddies, auntie Bailey here with the usual weekend roundup and what a weekend it was!  Christmas is definitely well underway in London City.

Things got off to a smooth start at World's End pub in the West End, with the amazing Joaquin Gustav and his guitar coming to us all the way from South America.  He played a selection of cool tunes, including some Christmas favourites given the Joaquin Gustav twist.

Straight after World's End, we had Best in Tattoos at Bar Soho with DJ Billy Arentire, before a mad dash down the street to Madame Lala's London Revue with DJ Torric Rodas for camp Christmas!

On Saturday we had the return of Elton John to Regent's Park for the weekend tribute concert and Best in Festive Outfit.  Elton seemed to go down well with the crowd, even when he hurled himself from the stage and proceeded to circulate among the audience.

On Sunday I heard a commotion outside Comptons pub.  Investigation showed it was the launch of a new movie co-starring London City's very own Evie Falconer 'Griefbusters'.  Alas I was not able to get close enough to the stars for a clear shot as they were surrounded by paparazzi.

Later on Sunday, Comptons saw more activity with Best in Christmas Hat.  There was a great atmosphere and I for one felt proud to be associated with London City.

Revellers at Comptons
The awesome DJ Ruby Jones rounded off the weekend's musical entertainment with Best in Black at Lezbo.

Back to Black
Next week we are talking Bar Soho out in to the park for a week of outside broadcasts!  The concert in the park on Saturday is...Boney M!

Weekend in Review - 7-9 October



A totally insane weekend in London City...makes a change!

As always we started out at Bar Soho before moving down the road to Madame Lala's London Revue for a tribute concert featuring Welsh hip swiveller, Mr Tom Jones.  He warbled his way through a selection of hit choons, much to the joy of the assembled crowd.

On Saturday we had an impromptu gig from Joan Baez in Trafalgar Square as part of a protest for peace, which saw much hippy placard waving.

Later on Saturday there was a Party in the Park with a contest theme of Best in Glasses in honour of the star attraction, Elton John!  The place was packed out and thankfully as so many people opted for dark glasses, Elton's outfit did not seem nearly so bright.

Some of the crowd shaking their bits for Elton
Sunday saw a change of pace at Comptons pub...well, several changes of pace actually as we had a good old fashioned hoedown with DJ Billy (the kid).  Country tunes and line dancing spectacular ensued.  It turned out to be an unexpected hit with the punters.

Line dancers...but who is gonna clean up that floor?

ELTON ROCKED LONDON CITY!



The Elton John Concert in London City Regent's Park was a massive success.

Regent's Park Open Air Theatre

Before the concert began, people were flooding in to claim their spot on the dance floor. We were joined by London community regulars as well as visitors from across Second Life. A selection of camp disco filled the warm night air in this second Summer Pop Festival concert. The crowd was buzzing with excitement while we waited for Elton John to appear.

The crowd reached a fevered pitch as Elton took the stage just before 10pm UK. The applause from 100 avatars was deafening when the curtain fell to reveal Elton sitting at a fuchsia piano, supported by the lovely Eltonettes.


The bitch was back with a vengeance!

Elton entertained the SRO (standing room only) crowd with classic hits like 'The Bitch Is Back' and 'Crocodile Rock'. People danced and sang along to their favorite tunes from this icon of popular music.


The Elton John concert pulled in a record 100 avatars

London City was heaving with activity throughout the night and due to excellent asset management we were able to keep the sim online all night! This meant we were all able to party well into the night without a single glitch.

We continue our Summer Pop Festival next week with Queen. Join us in London City Saturday 16 July for this phenomenal show!
