Kenny Rogers on Saturday

Kenny Rogers, born 1938, after appearing in many bands, launched his solo career in 1976.

He first became famous in 1977 with the single Lucille and on the strength of that, his first album imaginatively entitled Kenny Rogers became a number 1 selling album in the States.

More hits soon followed with, Ruby, Coward of The County, Lady, The Gambler and then he hit stratospheric fame with Dolly Parton in 1983 with the platinum selling Islands In The Stream, which was recently voted the most popular country hit single of all time.

In November 2017, Kenny, now suffering from severe mobility issues due to unsuccessful hip replacement surgery which has seen him largely confined to a wheelchair in recent years, decided to hang up his hat and retire from Showbiz.

We invite you to enjoy an evening with Kenny Rogers as he plays London City on Saturday.
The party starts at 12pm SL time (8pm UK), with the Concert an hour later at 1pm SL time.

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.

Leo Sayer concert (Brand New Show)

This week for Party in the Park we have a brand new show for you,  Leo Sayer.

Leo Sayer began his music career writing songs including "Giving It All Away", which gave Roger Daltrey of The Who and Daltry had his first solo hit.

His debut single, "Why Is Everybody Going Home", failed to chart, but he achieved national prominence in the United Kingdom with his second single, "The Show Must Go On", which Sayer performed on British television wearing a clown costume and makeup. The single went to No. 2 on the UK as did his debut album. 

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.

He enjoyed a renaissance in the early 2000's with Thunder in My Heart (again) and When I Need You.

His voice, as you will hear is perfectly preserved and changed very little in almost 50 years!

Party in The Park begins at 12pm SL (8pm UK) with Leo Sayer in concert, an hour later at 1pm SL.
