ABBA came to the Kensington in Virtual London, and since they are one of my favourite groups, I absolutely had to attend the concert, wearing my neon green, shiny jumpsuit! The concert was great, the tribute band from Stage One Productions played ABBA’s greatest hits, including Dancing Queen, Fernando, Waterloo and S.O.S. Lots of people must be ABBA fans because the sim was full, with at least 47 people at one point.
After the concert was over the fun continued with a 70’s street party outside the Greyhound Pub in Virtual Kensington. Brie Janick had gone all out with the decorations, which included a VW van, stylized flowers everywhere, ball chairs and lava lamps. It was fab. DJ Genevieve Gagnon played 70’s music, including disco and host cutewillow Carlberg made sure everyone had a great time.
Partygoers got into the spirit of the event, wearing 70’s outfits. Ed Follet was so inspired by the music and the shirt and tie he was wearing that he got up and danced on one of the cars parked outside the Greyhound. Seany1235 Blinker mesmerized or blinded everyone with his shiny silver outfit, round glasses and big hair. I think his hair must have been affected by the humidity in the sim because at one point it seemed to explode, engulfing his lovely and elegant bride-to-be Brie and a poor newbie who happened to be dancing nearby. It was not a sight you do not see every day.
And so ended another great party held in the Virtual Capital. Thanks to Brie Janick for organizing it (and thanks, Brie, for the landmark to the great retro store where I picked up my outfit), and to DJ Gen and cutewilllow for making the street party such a great success.
