Can  you believe  it all in one full fun packed day.
In Real  life, thousands of people joined the Pride parade through central London.









The parade began in Baker Street, passing through Oxford Street, Piccadilly and Trafalgar Square before ending at Whitehall.

Organisers said this could be the biggest lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender event in London over the last decade.

The theme this year is Love and Marriage to coincide with MPs considering the Equal Marriage Bill. 



In SL, people arrived  in  regents  park early, ready to party and  win  huge amounts of  money, the whole London City sim was buzzing.


Gay pride or LGBT pride is the positive stance against discrimination and violence toward lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) people to promote their self-affirmation, dignity, equality rights, increase their visibility as a social group, build community, and celebrate sexual diversity and gender variance.

First up .... Judy Garland, born  Francis  Ethel  Gumm, June 10th 1922, her career spanned 40 years, she was  as Fred  Astaire put it  "The Greatest  Entertainer That Ever  Lived".

Most  identified  for her role in Wizard  Of Oz, Judy sang her heart  out,  fabulous show tunes and a vibrancy on  she  could bring to the days  entertainment.

XXL,  fun  up beat tunes and  best dancer  on the poles, what a hoot, medics  on stand by  for  sore chaffing, people had a whale of  a time  sliding  up and down the poles for all  they were worth.

People joined  us from  all  over, ready to party, and have a great time .





Next up  Cher , born Cherilyn Sarkisian, May 20, 1946) is an American singer and actress. Cher took  to  the  stage, "nearly"  wearing  her signature one piece ...  the crowd roared as  she sang a medley  of  her  hits  that spanned   nearly half a century and she's  still going strong.



Later  Pans  people  took  to  the stage  and  displayed  their  own  unique version  or expressive dance.






Pan's People was a British TV dance troupe, most usually associated with the BBC TV music chart show Top of the Pops.


In an era before pop videos, they danced to songs whose original artists were not available to perform them live.











They were not the first dance troupe to appear regularly on Top of the Pops; they were preceded by The Go-Jos in the programme's first four years, before Pan's People replaced them in May 1968. They did not start off with weekly appearances, but they had become an almost-weekly feature of the programme by early 1970.


 Then juiced brought the evening to a close with fireworks  and  an array  of  upbeat  trance music, with yet more Linden cash  to win.





All  in all  we had  a fantastic time, meeting  a whole array  of  new people, and  our  regulars for  this fantastic  day.
London City  is  the  top  destination  in SL,  we strive to bring  you bigger and better each week and we deliver..... make  London City  your  number  1  venue.... we look forward to seeing  you again.

That's all from  me  this week,  I'll  see you  for  more  fun and frolics  in  the awesome  London  City .... accept no imitations xxxx

The Fabulous London City Review



Hey  London  City, how ya doing ?
I know you didn't see me last week, but  that's because we were celebrating  Second  Life's  10th Birthday.

So, did  you miss me? ( say yes ) And what have  you been up  to? tell me everything  ....and  don't skip  bits.
I can  tell you  exactly what we've been up to, we've been  the most popular destination  in  SL...FACT...as per usual  and we have been having a whale  of  a time.... fun, dancing ,shopping, chatting,events, concerts, prizes, winners, a whole array of wonderfulness... that all goes  into the mix to make  your London City  the top destination and most fun place to be in.

So, arriving in  London City, you will most likely land  in one of our two hubs,  the hubs are  bustling  with  people, friends  meeting  up after a hard days work  in  RL,  coming into London to chill out with friends, catching up  on all  the goss...






New people to Second  Life, drop  in, finding  a live  friendly community, and we offer a new  user experience to help all new  people pick  up some basics, to help them on  their way to a rich, full second  life, with trained, helpful Support, headed by our  wonderful  Evie  and  Bean, this really is a great place to be.

Once  you have  hit  the hub  you may want to travel around  the 4 sims  that go into making  London City what it is, all very  different in feel, we cater for every taste, and hold live interactive events too.

Once you have found  London  City, you will never want to leave, as so many of our regular residents say.

Every Saturday  evening we host a LIVE event  in Regents Park... we have seen all manner of fantastic artists play  there,  every week seeing  a huge star can you imagine how much that would  cost in RL....  here in Lonodn City  its all free and  open  to everyone to enjoy...just make  sure  you get  there early as  the place fills to capacity and  you will miss out.
We have seen huge stars  like  Tina  Turner,  Beyonce, Take  That, BeeGees, Rod Stewart,  omg ...the list  goes  on.

This week no stranger to  London City  regents  Park we had Amy MacDonald, she is awesome, with her new concert, with backing from non other than the royal  philharmonic orchestra , this event was epic in more ways than 1.













Amy, born August 26th  1987 in Dunbartonshire, she rose to fame  in 2007 with her first album "This Life" the single  "This Life" reached  the top 10  in  17 countries, 6 of  those  were number 1 in  the charts.


Amy has also won countless "Best  New Comer" awards since 2008.



















































































I caught  up  with Amy and  some of  the Orchestra having a cigarette before the show, and asked  them  how they felt about performing  in  The best  destination  in  SL... Amy said  "I love London City, its always full of such energy"


 










One of  the orchestra said "Burp" ... I  think  that was meant as a compliment.....




Saturday saw  Amy, dressed in her causal Red and Black stripy jumper and  shorts, standing centre stage  with the Royal  Philharmonic Orchestra around her, what an awesome and splendid sight and  the sound.... you really had to be there to experience  this awesome collaboration.

The Orchestra were dressed in all their finery, as they opened the show playing  Beethoven, then announcing








Amy to the stage, she sung her heart out, a distinctly recognisable voice Amy wowed  London City yet again with this awesome Live concert.



Meanwhile,  there's a new ( not necessarily wanted ) law enforcement officer...

Here we see Constable Babylon pulling  this poor innocent man over ( trying to chat him up and  woo  him with her tight  ...  some may say  ill fitting  uniform  ) poor chap doesn't stand a chance....












Well  that s all from me  this week,  I'll meet you  next time  for more fun and frolics  in  London City... Accept no  imitations....and  "Lets all be careful  out  there " xxx
