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.

Dorothy Squires Concert, Saturday 12pm SL



A largely forgotten legend, compared as the British voice of Ethel Merman and all the tragedy of Judy Garland is appearing in London City on Saturday.

The Party starts at 12pm SL (8pm UK) with the show at 1pm SL. 

Location: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/London%20City/105/111/23



It is hard to believe that Dorothy Squires, now so forgotten was once the highest paid British singer.

Famous for her belting voice, her outrageous ball gowns and an unbridled and profane temper, Dorothy Squires was a sensation that swept the country in the 1950's and beyond.

In 1953 she married the then unknown actor Roger Moore who was 12 years her junior and used her substantial clout with the right people in Hollywood to get him into movies and television series.

As Roger Moore's career took off, hers began to slide.  Throughout the 1960's she tried to keep her career in momentum, but she suffered from the emerging popularity of the sounds created by new and  younger singers, Cilla Black, Dusty Springfield and Sandy Shaw.

Squires and Moore separated in 1961, when Moore left her to move in with Luisa Mattioli.  Squires refused to divorce him without a substantial settlement and Moore could not re-marry until an agreement was reached and the divorce was finalised 8 years later in 1969.

Now aged 55 she managed to chart one final time with her own cover of "My Way".  New concerts followed at the Palladium, which Squires had hired herself at substantial cost, but her shows sold out in hours and she managed to cover her costs.

By 1971 Dorothy Squires career was almost at and end.   She undertook the first of 30 court cases which would keep her as the focal point in newspapers for the next 15 years.

She successfully sued the News of The World for a story they printed about her and Moore entitled "When love turned sour".

Her new career of suing people for libel began to turn bad when she dragged actor Kenneth Moore through the courts for accidentally referring to Mattioli as Roger Moore's wife when Moore was still married to Squires at the time.  She lost the case.

In 1973 she was charged with high kicking a taxi driver when he threw her out of his cab for being disorderly.  The same year she was charged with trying to "bribe" a BBC producer to play her records, but the case was dropped.


In 1974 her house burned down and she managed to escape the inferno clutching her jewels and love letters from Roger Moore.  She moved to a new house in Bray, which flooded three weeks later.

In 1982 she was banned from the high courts.  The high court declared her to be a Vexatious Litigant due to the number of bizarre cases she had taken out against other wealthy people seeking compensation for things said about her.  This move by the courts ended her ability from commencing any further legal action without the express permission of the court.  She never got this permission and she was never able to sue again.

Now broke due to the enormous amount of costs incurred losing nearly all of her court cases, Squires accepted the home provided by an adoring fan in Wales.  She retired there and lived out the rest of her life as a recluse.  She died of lung cancer in 1998 at the age of 83.

She is probably the chief architect of all her bad luck, caused by an obsession of pursuing the fame she had once enjoyed, which had come and gone.  Her refusal to realise that fame is fleeting was perhaps her undoing.

That said, she puts on a magnificent (if not a slightly bizarre camp comedy) show, so we hope you will join us for a rather tongue in cheek cabaret concert, celebrating the superstardom of Miss Dorothy Squires.

Joe Dolan died in 2007, but his talents live on and whilst you may not be familiar with the singer you will certainly know the songs and enjoy Joe's rendition.
