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.

The Queen's Sapphire Jubilee

Queen Elizabeth II has reigned for 65 years today, 6th February.

The Queen makes history as she becomes the first British Monarch to reach the Sapphire Jubilee.  Unlike her Golden Jubilee in 2002, there are no grand festivities planned to mark this historic milestone.

In 2015, when she thanked the nation for its kind messages after overtaking Queen Victoria's reign as the longest serving monarch of all time, she admitted that the record was "not one to which I have ever aspired".   Adding, "Inevitably, a long life can pass many milestones.  My own is no exception".

The Queen at 90

Happy Birthday to Her Royal Highness the Queen, who is 90 years young today.

Her Majesty's accession to the throne was in February 1952 and she was Coroneted in 1953.   Her 64 year reign makes her the longest serving British Monarch of all time, surpassing Queen Victoria's 63 years and 7 months, which ended in 1901.

The celebration of the Queen's Birthday will be held on Thursday 12th of May to Sunday 15th May.
For details see: The British Monarchy Website

Long may Queen Elizabeth II continue to reign.

Longest reigning monarch

When Elizabeth II became Queen in 1952, Stalin was still leader of Russia and Truman was President of the USA.

The British Empire, although severely dwindling, still existed. India had become independent just five years before.   The British Empire finally ended in 1997 when Hong Kong was given back to China.

Today, Queen Elizabeth II, becomes the longest reigning monarch in British history.

The 89 year old head of state, surpasses the reign of Queen Victoria, who until her death in 1901, was Queen for 63 years, 7 months, 2 days.

Wishing Her Majesty many more happy years.

The Weekend Diamond Jubilee Review Tuesday 5th June

So, what did you do over the bank holiday weekend ?
 If you weren't in London city ....Well lets just say you missed the kind of experience you would have wanted to tell the grand kids was awesome!!! Record amount of people in the sim ( what do you expect? We are number 1 in second life destinations ya know!)
OK, OK, I'll tell you all about it ....Are you sitting comfortably?
HRH Queen Elizabeth II celebrated 60 years of rule this weekend, it was her Diamond Jubilee,  and always on form with current events, London City celebrated with her, we had street parties, open air concerts, special guests, themed events, prizes  and much much more....
Friday 1st of June
There was a buzz in the air, people arrived in their droves, full of cheer and in a party mood, they made their way to Regents park, to the Jubilee gardens especially created in honour of Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee, once here, not only were  they entertained with popular music from the last 60 years, there was  exclusive free gifts for everyone, followed by Friday night at the proms... up beat, classical music, this event is so popular and free to attend, what an amazing night, rounding off with more popular music and a fantastic best in red, white and blue event, where a lucky resident won fabulous Linden Dollars

Saturday 2nd June 

  ..... well, I'm feeling a little worse for wear, after the huge party in the Jubilee gardens yesterday, what an awesome night... Just when you thought it couldn't be topped.... What do we pull out the bag to hit you with on Saturday???
 Only the famous and talented MAPOO LITTLE!! 'ave some of that!!!
Mapoo Little  first started singing at the tender age of two years old. A British girl, from Sheffield aged 25, Mapoo has always had a passion for singing and believes that music can heal peoples pain. Mapoo has been told she sounds a lot like Anastasia ,Tina Turner and other famous stars but she's no pretender or emulator and she feels similarities are flattering but coincidental.
No stranger to London City,  Mapoo jumped at the chance to sing LIVE and  celebrate the Queens diamond Jubilee with the London City crowds, and another record night with people quite literally queuing to get into the sim, more free gifts and great music followed, right into the night ... No wonder London city is the number 1  destination in second life ! 

Sunday 3rd June

So... its Sunday ....I bet you're kinda thinking by now, they cant possibly have  done  anything else....It was  just going to be a quiet Sunday lazing around Regents park, a chat with friends in the hub, a bit of shopping in the fantastic shops around  London City, recovering from the previous 2 nights of awesomeness......WRONG!!!!

We whisked up more frenzy than you can shake a stick at !!! The sim was bursting at the seams again all Sunday!!

We kicked off in the Soho....Forget Doctor Foster in  Gloucester and puddles up to ya middles...pppffft!!

We only flooded the sim ( nods head ) oh yeah,  the whole of London City ....flooded!!

Hows that good i hear you ask .... Ordinarily I guess,  you could say something went wrong if ya sim floods ... but not Sunday, bring in the FLOTILLA!!!

All aboard the party boat... carrying on with the Diamond Jubilee celebrations we danced until our pixels hurt, what a hoot, people came from all over the grid to party with us ( London City being the top destination in the whole of Second Life! )

Dancing, Prizes, Gifts, Chatting all summed up in two words....FANTASTIC FUN !!!

Oh, and it didn't stop there!!

Later singing LIVE,  only the Famous and Talented Helvis Xue....

 Helvis is known throughout Second life for his awesome live voice, not only singing Elvis greats,  but more contemporary songs with an Elvis twist!

 Its a fantastic show and Helvis is a regular performer in London City, and it seemed right to have the King singing for the Queen on her Diamond Jubilee.

Monday 4th June ...


So far we have had the best time ever, its been  a non stop Diamond Jubilee party here in London city,

 This is a real life event, and has been celebrated throughout Britain and the Commonwealth.

Here in London city, we pride ourselves on following closely the real life events from around the Uk, and interpreting them into second life, so that people from all over the world can enjoy a virtual but realistic experience with us ..  We have all been involved in a snippet of history this weekend , that will long be remembered.

Today, Monday 4th June 2012, we join  with  thousands of people around the globe to celebrate  Queen Elizabeth II  Royal  Diamond Jubilee

The Queen was born Princess Elizabeth Alexandra Mary  of york at 2.40am on 21 April 1926 at 17 Burton Street, London. She was the first child of the Duke and Duchess of York, who were later crowned King George VI and Queen Elizabeth.

Princess Elizabeth acceded to the throne as Queen Elizabeth II on 6th February 1952 and was crowned on June 2nd 1953.

 Here today, in Second life,  we celebrate her 60 years as our Monarch, with song, dancing and fun.

Grace Jones 
Shirley Bassey
Annie Lenox
Our concert in the Jubilee Gardens, is beamed live from the actual concert being held in London with Buckingham palace as the back drop, our very own Billy Arentire built a replica stage for the ultimate virtual experience and we had a right royal knees up.

We partied to the likes of Cliff Richard, Jessie J, Paul McCartney, Elton John and loads and loads of other stars.
Tom Jones

Gazza and Chezza
Queen Elizabeth spoke to the masses saying "The events that I have attended to mark my Diamond Jubilee have been a humbling experience." she said  "it has touched me deeply  to see so many thousands of families and friends celebrating together in such a happy atmosphere." she added " I hope that memories of this years happy events will brighten our lives for many years to come."

" I will continue to treasure and draw inspiration from the countless kindnesses shown to me in this country and throughout the commonwealth. Thank you all "

Tuesday 5th June ..

What a fantastic weekend, can you believe all we have done?  I've only listed the main events over this long weekend, we also had daily events in Bar soho, Substation, Worlds End, and Lezbo, each with a party atmosphere, and lots of happy people enjoying the festivities.

So as we wind down from all the hype and excitement, its left to one man.... A man who's time in England crossed with the Reign of Queen Elizabeth II. He came to the U.K 60 years ago ( can you tell who it is yet ?) He has writes songs,plays instruments, paints pictures, and he's  a T.V presenter amongst other talents.

He painted a portrait of our Queen Liz, and he tells that story to all who will listen, ( many times )
                                          You've guessed it,  it's the one and only Rolf Harris. 

Yes the ever popular  Rolf and his Rolferoo's came in to help close the celebrations to the Jubilee with a fantastic concert in Regents park. 
Playing to a huge crowd Rolf sang his little heart out and thoroughly enjoyed the whole thing... dressed in a loud Hawaiian shirt he played with his digeridoo for everyone's entertainment ... we do love Rolf here in London City . 

So that's me signing out, for a well earned rest :) on behalf of the whole London City Team, We  hope you enjoyed our Jubilee weekend, and Thank you for choosing to spend it with us. You guys rock!! 
I'll see you next time  after another fabulous week in London City xxx

QUEEN Plays to Packed House!

Saturday night in Soho, London City saw the arrival of the legendary band QUEEN!

Queen packed the house to bursting. 100 of the sexiest avatars showed up for this SRO (Standing Room Only) show. There were so many people on the dance floor we could hardly see Queen on the  Open Air, Theatre stage, but quick camming skills gave everyone a fantastic view!

Prynce of subVersion in London City provided a free gift for everyone at the concert, a specially made Queen outfit given just for the night! We can't thank Prynce enough for his long standing support of London City and were thrilled at his participation during the nights events! Queen rocked the stage and the sound of hundreds of feet on the dance floor filled the summer air. The roar of the crowd was deafening.

We partied well into the night with our Best in Latex contest. Camp Attack took over the dance floor to a sea of sexy latex clad hotties. Special congratulations goes out to Ed Floresby for winning tonights competition.

It was an amazing night of pure London City entertainment...another in the Summer Pop Series!

More pictures of this phenominal concert are available on our Facebook page.
