Mark Knopfler - Glasgow - 2013

17th May 2013


Glasgow SECC

A pleasant enough couple of hours spent in the company of Mark and his collection of outrageously talented brothers in arms.

Not having kept up with his career since the dissolution of Dire Straits (this gig was Wife's suggestion), much of the material was unfamiliar to me.  Postcards from Paraguay was my personal highlight.   

There were but four Dire Straits songs aired: Romeo & Juliet and Going Home were both magical, but the run throughs of Telegraph Road and So Far Away were rather perfunctory - MK seemingly almost grudgingly dusting them down as crowd pleasers.
