It has been more than 40 years since the opening line of “Sultans Of Swing” was first heard being broadcast around the world. In the process, it introduced us to a magnificent guitar player and songwriter in Mark Knopfler, and to what has become a musical universe unto itself: the music of DIRE STRAITS.
Over 25 years have passed since DIRE STRAITS disbanded, leaving a catalogue of some of the finest compositions and musical performances that the heyday of rock ever produced. If anything, their reputation has only grown with time. Record sales of more than one hundred and twenty million albums continue to increase as new young fans discover the music and join the band’s massive worldwide following. A trend that is echoed in their 2018 inauguration into the Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame.
THE DIRE STRAITS EXPERIENCE features original band members Chris White on Saxophone and Chris Whitten on drums supported by the world-class musicians Terence Reis, Tim Walters, Simon Carter, Danny Schogger, and Paul Geary, who have performed in the bands of artists such as Paul McCartney, Joe Cocker, Ray Charles, David Bowie, Tina Turner, Rod Stewart, Van Morrison and David Gilmour – the best of the best!
With the breathtaking skill and showmanship of the original 120-million-selling stadium phenomenon, the greatest hits of DIRE STRAITS are presented live in all their ambition, grandeur and aching beauty, for all the fans that that have kept them alive by The Dire Straits Experience.
