"Gibson Guitar corporation, the famous manufacturer of acoustic and electric guitars is launching an island in Second Life on Wednesday, 16 July to promote their products, and the work done through the Gibson Foundation
...As part of the launch, 70s multi-platinum solo artist and former Fleetwood Mac vocalist/guitarist Bob Welch will perform in an exclusive concert with other Second Life musicians. Bob Welch's avatar (Bobwelch Magic) will also appear on stage along with celebrity musicians Cypress Rosewood and Von Johin."

Tateru Nino & Massively got a sneak peek of the island.

"What a great idea - to bring Gibson Guitars in-world and set up a few stages for performances! Bob Welch is playing to a sim filled with 110 avatars, and the crowd is doing it’s thing in true SL style…offering feedback and chatting with the performers like you just can’t do in RL. Some nice Fleetwood Mac anecdotes are a-flowing…the guys clearly are having a great time."

This was AWESOME!! It will go down as one of those times when you look back and say "I was there when it happened. I was there at the beginning of something great!". Thank you Gibson Guitars, Bob Welch, Cypress Rosewood, and everyone involved who brought this incredible show to SL.
