Countdown to Mark Knopfler Concert 9-1-19



The Polack MSgt.....According to his setlist this is the only song from Communiqué he will play. He dropped "Silvertown Blues" which is my favorite by him.

2. Have fun. I only saw him on the On Every Street tour at Washington State U.

Great show.

It was funny that Garth Brooks was there a few weeks before. At our local ticket outlet, people camped out and the line was around the block for his tickets. I showed up at the buttcrack of dawn to stand in line for Dire Straits tickets and there were two other dudes waiting. We took turns making coffee runs until they opened up for us. Hard to believe it wasn't a bigger deal than it was, finally having Dire Straits come closer than Seattle.

3. This is also great - and more to the point it is better suited for a single guitar arrangement than

Single handed sailor, lady writer or follow me home.

As long as we are dissecting Communique, (which I love and has no bad songs) The News is great as well.



And the whole Sailing to Philadelphia album is magic.

Everyone seems to like Local Hero more than I do (So much SLOOOOOOW), but I like this cut. Bet you'd never have guessed that it's the rockabilly tune.

8. Whoa!

That took me by surprise, much like Twisting by the Pool or Calling Elvis!

9. Thanks


Now why didn't I think of that?

Looks like an eclectic list. I would have preferred Lady Writer but I'm glad to see Once Upon a Time in the West on there, along with Your Latest Trick.

6. I had tickets to Dire Straits first US tour. Front row - center...

...and they canceled! Apparently there was a lack of interest in my city.
