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.

|The original Soho Square in 2009|
Five years ago, we opened Mainland London, which later became London City in Second Life.
It started on a small piece of land on the Mainland in a region called Mephilo Tor. It was just large enough for Soho Square, four shops and the Bar Soho club.
We consider ourselves incredibly fortunate that so many people wanted to get involved in the project very early on and we grew rapidly to a half region within 12 weeks of opening, by adding Regent's Park.
Within 6 months we had outgrown the confines of the Mainland region because there was no more space to acquire and we relocated by purchasing a private island region which became London City.
|The original Regent's Park in 2010|
|The London City Estate today|
Thanks to your incredible support London City is not only the most popular London in Second Life, it is largely considered to be the ubiquitous London in Virtual Worlds and is Second Life's single most popular destination.
Our sincere thanks to the team many of whom have been with us since the very beginning, the merchants and visitors for making this possible.
Enjoy this video of our humble beginnings as Mainland London way back from 2009.

London City in Second Life presents the World Premiere of Dead Road, a Second Life Film.
Dead Road is the story of a terminally ill woman (Zarah Minx) and her doctor (Felix Bunkenstein) desperately seeking salvation in a crumbling, apocalyptic world.
Pursued by a deadly assassin and hunted by a ruthless vampire clan, Zarah and Felix fight their way to a better place in a sexy, action packed roller coaster of gratuitous violence and intrigue, a tribute to the grindhouse/exploitation genre and its revivalist film makers.
Written and Directed by Bunky Snowbear (Dr. Noob, Griefbusters) and starring London City’s Evie Falconer, Dana Luckless and a cast of familiar locals, Dead Road will change your perceptions of Second Life machinima.
London City in Second Life will be hosting the World Premiere of Dead Road at Comptons Pub on Sunday 28th July 2013 at 7amSLT (3pm UK time).
Everyone is welcome, so frock up and come along to be among the first people on the planet to see it! (refreshments available at the bar)
Comptons Pub is located here: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/London%20City/42/182/24

It's been ten years since Second Life started and I'm still waiting for my clothes to rez.
In its infancy, Second Life was a crude laggy, soupy and choppy 3D experience where nothing would rez and the viewers and regions would crash constantly.
Ten years later, we now have mesh.
But the main point is, we have this fantastic community that interacts with each other and builds all kinds of incredible creations, limited only by skill and imagination.
There is a birthday celebration on now, called SL10B and you can see the London City exhibit here: http://slurl.com/secondlife/SL10B%20Mesmerize/187/162/22
Many Happy Returns to Second Life!
