THE Dire Straits Experience is embarking on a six-date UK tour. Bringing back to life the music of one of the most creative and unique bands in rock music, this acclaimed live show features former band member, instrumentalist Chris White and Terence Reis whom Chris describes as ‘the only person on the planet that is able to play and sing like Mark Knopfler.’
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 125 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.
Joining Chris White is a stellar band of some of the finest professional musicians the UK has to offer. Between them they have worked with an enviable list of rock royalty that includes, amongst others, Mark Knopfler, Eric Clapton, Paul McCartney, Sam Brown, Elton John and George Michael, to name but a few…
On the forthcoming tour Chris said: “I have been truly amazed and, frankly, humbled by the response we have had from the fans on hearing these songs again. Dire Straits have the most amazingly loyal fan base. It has been so great to reconnect with people I last saw in 1992 and see them still getting so much from this music.”
Tour dates include Bournemouth on 10 May, Cambridge 18 May, Cheltenham 19 May, Guildford 22 June, Liverpool 26 June and London Shepherds Bush Empire 28 June. To book tickets visit: musicplussport.com. For more information on The Dire Straits Experience visit: www.direstraitsexperience.com
