There are few recording artists who are considered an example of 'cool' throughout their careers and remain there long after their death, but Johnny Cash is one such person.
The American singer-songwriter was one of the top selling music artists of all time, selling more than 90 million records worldwide.
Drug and alcohol abuse featured prominently in his early career until he met and fell in love with June Carter, who was independently famous as part of the bible singing Carter Family. Cash said he had an epiphany when meeting Carter and his devotion for her made him clean up his habits and embrace the teachings of the Lord. (Everyone say Hallelujah!)
Johnny Cash is best know for songs, Hurt, A Boy Named Sue, Ghost-riders, Folsom Prison Blues, Ring of Fire, When The Man Comes Around, Jackson and Walk The Line.
He is appearing as a solo act for the first time ever in London City with a brand new show on Saturday and you are invited to spend some time with this great icon.
The party starts at 12pm SLT (8pm UK), with the concert an hour later at 1pm SLT.

|Jan Couch - Tammy Faye Bakker - Vestal Goodman|
This weekend in London City, we're holding a "Revival". A toe-tapping high tempo, deep south, Gospel concert, starring our versions of Jan Crouch and Tammy Faye Bakker as hosts, with Vestal Goodman (known as Vestal Virgin) as the lead performer in our show.
In America, selling God is a multi-billion dollar, tax free business, raking in wealth for its televangelists, unimaginable even by the most famous of performers.
Each week millions of people tune into crying preachers who offer everything from cures for terminal illnesses to guarantees of making you as rich as them, so long as you send them your hard earned cash on a regular basis.
The premise being that God is a bit strapped for cash and that a mighty oak will grow from the acorn you plant.
Perpetually embroiled in scandals of racketeering, prostitution and embezzlement, it is also a cut throat business with each ministry condemning other ministries and producing evidence on each other, as they compete for the prize fund of your money.
|Kenneth Copeland - Benny Hinn - Robert Tilton|
Top of the tree is Kenneth Copeland, with a tax free estimated worth of over a billion dollars, a fleet of private jets and his own airport, all used for spreading the word of the ministry... and holidays.
Every so often things go wrong, as it did in 1987 for Jim and Tammy Faye Bakker, who were the original Satellite Televangelists. Jim was found guilty of mail fraud and sent to prison for 47 years, but paroled just 5 years later. His mistake was to oversell time-share stays at Heritage USA, a city he had built to spread the good word.
Since the Bakkers mistakes, other televangelists have stopped offering tangible assets and instead offer to use their own hot line direct God (who speaks to them constantly) to get you the things you want. Since this cannot be measured, its all perfectly legal and profitable in the extreme!
However, with such extreme stakes involved, the production value of the shows produced by each ministry is paralleled only by Walt Disney studios.
Our Revival concert highlights the very best of the glitz and glamour you can expect as your sins are melted away. It is tongue in cheek, has a free bar with hard liquor, the occasional hooker for our preachers and lots of crying.
We are not poking fun at people's beliefs, we are however aiming to lambaste the highest paying entertainment job in the world.
Starts 12pm SL (8pm UK) with 'The Hungry Goodmans' on stage from 1pm SL time.
