Multiple Grammy award-winner Mark Knopfler returns to the Royal Albert Hall following the release of his forthcoming eighth studio album, Tracker.
Amid the new material, Knopfler will perform plenty of classic hits. He says: "The thing about the old Straits songs is that these things are signposts for people's lives. Obviously I'll play things differently here and there to keep it alive and meaningful to me, and away from a cabaret thing ... I like playing the old songs, I wrote them and people like to hear them, it's as simple as that.”
Knopfler will be performing with a seven-piece band, most of whom have been working with him for the best part of two decades: Guy Fletcher (keyboards), Richard Bennett (guitar), Jim Cox (piano), Mike McGoldrick (whistle and flute), John McCusker (fiddle and cittern), Glenn Worf (bass), and Ian Thomas (drums).
VIP Experience tickets were available for £228 per person, which included a pre-show standing recpetion in a VIP hospitality suite and a premium stalls seat.
