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.

Elise made a spectacle of herself.

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.

Weekend Weather is here




Have you noticed that every time we are told to stay indoors, that the weather becomes amazing?

After a wishy-washy August, with the coldest temperatures ever recorded, September sees the return of the summer, with the best weather coming when the law changes (in the UK) on Monday and we can no longer hang out with our family and friends, unless we're unlucky enough to only have six.

That said, its going to be a scorcher of a weekend again, so we need to make the most of it, and our advice to you is for copious amounts of grog, music and snacks and to enjoy the parties here in London City as we continue the Birthday celebrations.

Dusty Springfield on Saturday



Perhaps one of the most iconic looks of the 1960's belongs to singer Dusty Springfield, with her white backcombed hair and thick eyeliner.  It was a look that so many have tried to emulate.

Dusty, hit the charts in 1963 with I Only Want To Be With You, and from that moment on both sides of the Atlantic, a star was born.  She followed her first hit up with many more, including Wishin' and Hopin', I Only Want To Be With You, I Just Don't Know What To Do With Myself, You Don't Have To Say You Love Me, and Son of A Preacher Man and many many more.

Dusty is appearing in London City on Saturday and the party starts at 12pm SL time (8pm UK), with the show an hour later at 1pm SL time.

The August Bank Holiday



We made use of the rainy Bank Holiday today, when London burst its river banks and gave us the opportunity to go sailing around the city!
