Taking a fresh approach with the music of Mark Knopfler and Dire Straits, this show features new songs, some of which were collaborations between Knopfler and James Taylor (Sailing To Philadelphia), Emmylou Harris (This is Us), Jeff Healy (So Far Away) and includes the iconic ‘Your Latest Trick’. Of course, the most popular Dire Straits songs, including favourites ‘Sultans Of Swing’, ‘Money For Nothing’, ‘Brothers In Arms’ and ‘Romeo and Juliet’, will be performed with a new ‘unplugged twist’.
Since 1995 when Dire Straits disbanded, Knopfler has recorded and produced nine solo albums which produced many hit songs. He also composed and produced the music for nine film scores including ‘Going Home’ from Local Hero, another song included in this show.
