Emmylou Harris Concert

The perfect voice of Emmylou Harris.

Emmylou Harris is an American singer and songwriter.

Back in the 60s she was spotted by Gram Parsons who recognized her special talent of introducing harmonies that the song writers had overlooked.  After Gram's untimely and bizarre death, Emmylou went solo and carved her own career.

She has recorded with Bob Dylan, John Denver, Dolly Parton, Linda Ronstadt, Roy Orbison, Neil Young and most recently toured with Mark Knopfler.

In 1995 she diverged from country for a new Indy-style sound for her album "Wrecking Ball", which was panned by critics as career suicide, and yet sold more then 5 million copies.  Since then Emmylou has periodically, continued to dip her toes into this unique style of music.

She went on to win 13 Grammy's and was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 2008.

Emmylou Harris appears in London City on Saturday.   The party begins at 12pm SL time (8pm UK) with the concert an hour later at 1pm SL time.

His subsequent singles were all major hits in the United Kingdom – "One Man Band" went to No. 6 in 1974 and "Moonlighting" went to No. 2 in 1975. His albums in this period were also consistently successful in the United Kingdom he scored five consecutive Top 10 placings on the United Kingdom album chart between 1973 and 1977.

Pride: Pracatan on Saturday: "I lub ewe"

Something camp for Pride!

This week it's Margarita Pracatan  a Cuban singer and gangster who found unexpected success in the 1990s.

Her big break came on the Clive James TV show where each week Margarita would play out the show, singing  her own unique rendition of famous songs, but performed on a Casio electronic organ, often with an unusually fast beat, and often playing all the right notes, but not necessarily in the right order.

Now, in London, she  performs a breath taking show with an unusual orchestra provided by a Casio organ.

A show not to be missed!  Trust us!

Party starts 12pm SL (8pm UK) with the concert an hour later at 1pm.

Dorothy Squires Concert, Saturday 12pm SL

A largely forgotten legend, compared as the British voice of Ethel Merman and all the tragedy of Judy Garland is appearing in London City on Saturday.

The Party starts at 12pm SL (8pm UK) with the show at 1pm SL. 


It is hard to believe that Dorothy Squires, now so forgotten was once the highest paid British singer.

Famous for her belting voice, her outrageous ball gowns and an unbridled and profane temper, Dorothy Squires was a sensation that swept the country in the 1950's and beyond.

In 1953 she married the then unknown actor Roger Moore who was 12 years her junior and used her substantial clout with the right people in Hollywood to get him into movies and television series.

As Roger Moore's career took off, hers began to slide.  Throughout the 1960's she tried to keep her career in momentum, but she suffered from the emerging popularity of the sounds created by new and  younger singers, Cilla Black, Dusty Springfield and Sandy Shaw.

Squires and Moore separated in 1961, when Moore left her to move in with Luisa Mattioli.  Squires refused to divorce him without a substantial settlement and Moore could not re-marry until an agreement was reached and the divorce was finalised 8 years later in 1969.

Now aged 55 she managed to chart one final time with her own cover of "My Way".  New concerts followed at the Palladium, which Squires had hired herself at substantial cost, but her shows sold out in hours and she managed to cover her costs.

By 1971 Dorothy Squires career was almost at and end.   She undertook the first of 30 court cases which would keep her as the focal point in newspapers for the next 15 years.

She successfully sued the News of The World for a story they printed about her and Moore entitled "When love turned sour".

Her new career of suing people for libel began to turn bad when she dragged actor Kenneth Moore through the courts for accidentally referring to Mattioli as Roger Moore's wife when Moore was still married to Squires at the time.  She lost the case.

In 1973 she was charged with high kicking a taxi driver when he threw her out of his cab for being disorderly.  The same year she was charged with trying to "bribe" a BBC producer to play her records, but the case was dropped.

In 1974 her house burned down and she managed to escape the inferno clutching her jewels and love letters from Roger Moore.  She moved to a new house in Bray, which flooded three weeks later.

In 1982 she was banned from the high courts.  The high court declared her to be a Vexatious Litigant due to the number of bizarre cases she had taken out against other wealthy people seeking compensation for things said about her.  This move by the courts ended her ability from commencing any further legal action without the express permission of the court.  She never got this permission and she was never able to sue again.

Now broke due to the enormous amount of costs incurred losing nearly all of her court cases, Squires accepted the home provided by an adoring fan in Wales.  She retired there and lived out the rest of her life as a recluse.  She died of lung cancer in 1998 at the age of 83.

She is probably the chief architect of all her bad luck, caused by an obsession of pursuing the fame she had once enjoyed, which had come and gone.  Her refusal to realise that fame is fleeting was perhaps her undoing.

That said, she puts on a magnificent (if not a slightly bizarre camp comedy) show, so we hope you will join us for a rather tongue in cheek cabaret concert, celebrating the superstardom of Miss Dorothy Squires.

PRIDE: Queen and 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 had 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.

He opened HM The Queen's Platinum Jubilee concert in June 2022.

We are hoping you will join us for the show this Saturday, with all the classic Queen songs performed by Queen and Adam Lambert.

Pride begins this weekend in London City

As a tie-in to RL London Pride, London City begins LGBTQ+ Pride this coming weekend.

Starting us off this Saturday is the beloved Tina Turner who we tragically lost only last week.  This icon of sex, rock'n'roll (and drugs if you include Ike), will be sorely missed and it is therefore only fitting to put her at the top of the events to start Pride and to celebrate her talent and legacy.

Being the start of the summer season, you can expect some great parties this weekend in London City.

The long weekend begins..

Stiff Little Fingers on Saturday

A brand new Show this weekend!

Stiff Little Fingers are a punk rock band from Belfast, Northern Ireland. 

They formed in 1977 at the height of the troubles, which informed much of their songwriting. They were the first punk band in Belfast to release a record ("Suspect Device" single came out on their own independent label, Rigid Digits). Their album "Inflammable Material", released in partnership with Rough Trade, became the first independent LP to enter the UK top 20. 

Stiff Little Fingers, especially the lead singer and main songwriter Jake Burns, were heavily influenced by The Clash. The group started to write songs about growing up in the troubles in late 1970s Northern Ireland.  

It is worth noting that the 'troubles', themselves were not restricted to Northern Ireland, as the Provisional IRA would regularly bomb mainland England, especially the capital on an almost weekly basis and were responsible for the bombing and murder of Earl Mountbatten of Burma in 1979 and the Hyde Park nail bomb atrocity in 1982.

Stiff Little Fingers, still tour the world even now and are very popular within the Punk Genre.

Rolf Harris dying to give a concert

Largely convicted by the evidence he provided against himself, the disgraced entertainer, Rolf Harris has died aged 93.

Back in 2012, Rolf who was still beloved due to his long career in TV and his shows including Animal Hospital, Rolf's Cartoon Club and his art work and songs, was the choice for MC at the Queen's Golden Jubilee celebrations and painted her portrait that same year.

He was a celebrity that everyone over a certain age has grown up with and was hugely famous due to his broad range of talents and long career beginning in the mid-1960s.  He was a personality that decency forbids us ever from remembering and therefore he is most certainly guilty of making us collectively erase whole portions of our childhood memories.

Before his downfall, London City had performed the Rolf Harris concert show on several occasions, but due to his conviction, the show has never again seen the light of day in 11 years.

Is it ever OK to listen to a Rolf Harris song again?

Because if it isn't then so be it.  But if it is, then it's now or never..

Blondie on Saturday

Forty years ago (at least), waitress Debbie Harry, who had been performing part-time in a folk band, formed Blondie with her friend Chris Stein.

In 1976 they released their first album Blondie and from then on became a huge success in Australia, England and America.

Although the bulk of their hits were in a relatively short timespan from 1978 to 1981, their most successful release, Maria was not until the band reformed, many years later in 1999.

Now regularly touring again, you can enjoy the hits once more at The Blondie Tribute Concert, this Saturday in London City.  The party begins at  12pm SL (8pm UK) with the show an hour later at 1pm SL.
