Passenger Concert on Saturday



Passenger was originally a Brit folk/rock band formed in 2003.

When they split up in 2007, lead singer Mike Rosenberg continued his career as a solo artist under the name of Passenger, busking his way around Europe and appearing at fringe festivals.

Then suddenly in 2013 year he exploded onto the scene with three chart topping songs in quick succession,   Let her Go, The Wrong Direction and Holes.

Having written over 200 songs, Passenger is receiving the critical acclaim that eluded the band for so long. 

Party in the Park starts on Saturday at 12pm SL (8pm UK) with Passenger tribute band on stage an hour later.

Restart Problems on Tuesday



We are sorry for what seemed like continual restarts on all four of our regions at various times for most of yesterday.

As is normal on Tuesdays, the Second Life Servers were rolled for update, but unexpectedly also rolled all of the Release Candidate servers too, placing them on the main channel by accident.

A second roll was later performed to hopefully correct this error, but unfortunately it then placed the estate on the incorrect RC channel, After a third and final roll the estate finally went back to the correct server.

Each roll resulted in approximately 30 minutes of down time per region and effected not only our visitors ability to enter London City but also caused disruption to ongoing events.

We are sorry for this disruption, but it was beyond our control, and we are pleased to let you know that everything is now resolved.

London City Community Gateway






Second Life's London themed Community Gateway, "London City Gateway" is taking shape.

The Gateway aims to give new users the basic skills they need to enjoy their initial experience in Second Life.

New users creating accounts will be given the option to login directly to London City, so it is important to include as many useful tutorials as possible, without overwhelming a newcomer.

The 'Walk-Through' already covers how to move, walk, fly, communicate, dress avatars, use pose balls and join groups.



We are very fortunate that London City group memberships now total a quarter of a million residents and to that end we would like to draw upon your wealth of experience and invite your comments, suggestions and ideas for additional 'instructions' that should be included.






Please visit London City Community Gateway and imagine yourself as a brand new user. If you have a suggestion for something we should include as a basic but essential skill that a new user will need within the first hour of their Second Life, please drop a note card in-world to Billy Arentire.

At this point we are not seeking to demonstrate building skills as a part of the tour as this will be included in a dedicated area.

Thank you to all your suggestions so far.  Please keep them coming.
