Two days: Feb. 20th and 21st. Four shows:
Feb 20, 6pm- 8pm SLT; Harry Frychester and Pippa Exonar.

Origen’s Hollywood Square Garden. The build is based on a model of Madison Square Garden in New York. Even as a scaled-down version of the real-life venue, this build is huge. When completely rezzed it has physical seating for over 2400 guests. This venue will host live performers and re-create performances that took place at Madison Square Garden over the years; from such performers as Frank Sinatra, The Rolling Stones, Tony Bennett and Fleetwood Mac.
The opening performers will be Harry Frychester and Pippa Exonar appearing on Feb. 20th at 6pm and 7pm SLT respectively. Harry is known throughout Second Life for his smooth voice and professional performances, whether they are in the area of jazz, pop or country music. Pippa has a flair for fun, entertaining and strong female voice selections of music. When she sings one of her favorite songs, “A Spoon Full of Sugar,” from “Mary Poppins,“ one swears it is actually Julie Andrews in Pixel form. It is no wonder that at her performances she is breaking venue attendance records.
Opening the second night of this weekend event is Jae Sands (Feb. 21st, 6pm SLT). He will be re-creating Frank Sinatra’s performance at Madison Square Garden in 1974. The show was titled, “The Main Event.” Jae will perform live the songs that Sinatra did in that show. This will be followed at 7pm SLT by a tribute band of one of the biggest groups to ever play Madison Square Garden, The Rolling Stones. The likenesses of the avatars to the actual band members is stunning to see.
The Hollywood Square Garden is part of Origen’s Hollywood Venues; which also includes, the Hollywood Ballroom and The Bowl.
