An evening with John Illsley about the Life and Times of Dire Straits  “A  Concert and Q&A of Music & Memories”.

Along with Mark Knopfler, John was a founder member of the legendary band who, during their time together, sold over 120 million albums.

The evening will feature classics from the Dire Straits history and include a Q & A with a/v led by Paul Cummins [ex-Dire Straits management}. Paul will be asking questions, during which John will reveal the story and development of the band from its humble beginnings in a council flat in South London, where songs like Sultans of Swing and Wild West End were created, on their journey to playing all over the world to millions of fans, making albums in London, New York, Montserrat and Nassau; performing and working with some of the world’s most influential and creative musicians and producers.

“Having Mark Knopfler as songwriter, singer and guitar player in the band gave Dire Straits it’s unique character. It was a pleasure for me to be able to contribute to the distinctive sound of the band and enjoy the friendship and musical journey that Mark and I shared.”

John will also be joined on stage with fellow musicians from John’s band who will play music from the whole DS catalogue including, Money for Nothing, Brothers in Arms, Romeo and Juliet and Sultans of Swing.

It promises to be a special, intimate evening looking into the life and times of one of the biggest rock & roll bands of all time.
