Mankind Concert Success

On Sunday, September 14, Mankind Tracer, and his alt, Mankind Republic, presented the Peace, Love and Belief II concert. This was the second of Mankind Tracer’s marathon concerts. The first one took place in January and covered 23 sims, this second one took place in over 30 sims, starting with the “Wildcoast” sim and ending at Mankind’s own sim, “The Temple of Mankind”, including “The Kensington” at Kensington in the London sims.Mankind Tracer’s music ranged from songs of the 1960’s up until this past year. The audience was treated to such classics as The Beatles’ “Hey Jude”, Billy Joel’s “Always a Woman to Me”, Elton John’s “Rocket Man” as well as Plain White Tee’s “Hey There Delilah”.The whole concert took five hours, but the enthusiasm of Mankind Tracer, his singers the Tracerettes and his fans took this in their stride, dancing from sim to sim. At one point Mankind said that there were 240 listening to the stream. Overall things ran smoothly, especially considering the challenges SL can sometimes present getting from location to location, made more difficult by large numbers in some of the sims.Mankind explained that the title, “Peace, Love and Belief” describes what he feels can be found inside everyone. If you have peace in your mind, love in your heart and belief in yourself then the world can be made a better place. He uses the infinity symbol to represent the relationship of peace, love and belief; each concept is linked to each other and strengthens each other, by believing in yourself you can learn to love yourself and be at peace with yourself, which in turn is reflected in the way you live in this world. Certainly words and ideas to think about.
