Mark Knopfler of Dire Straits Announces New Tour


I remember walking up and down the halls of my dorm in college and some days you could hear four different cuts from Brothers In Arms playing within about 50 feet. So I know the fans, they’re passionate about the classics that still ring in their heads to this day. The fun part is that Mark seems to really love the fans as well!

Mark has a new album coming out called “Down The Road Wherever”, and has lined up 26 dates in support!  Here’s what Mark Knopfler said in the announcement about the tour…

“My songs are made to be performed live. I love the whole process of writing them alone and then recording them with the band, but ultimately the best part is playing them to an audience live. I enjoy the whole circus, traveling from town to town and interacting with this group of players is a total pleasure. I’m really looking forward to it.”

Mark Knopfler kicks off his 55-date European trek on April 25th in Barcelona, Spain. And then we get the pleasure of seeing him next summer. The show in Minneapolis is August 30th at the Orpheum Theatre! 

Here’s a little taste…
