7.30PM
TICKETS £25.50

An evening 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 audio/visual, 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.
                                                                       
John will also be joined on stage by 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.
