During the 1980s Dire Straits was one of the biggest bands in the world with songs like "Money For Nothing", "Romeo and Juliet" and "Sultans Of Swing". Then Mark Knopfler hit out on his own, releasing eight solo albums to great success. Now he's up to number nine "Tracker".
Oh dear oh dear, why did he pick the O2 for this very intimate gig. And, as has been commented earlier, it sounded AWFUL, with most of the sound seeming to wash around the back of the arena resulting in this weird echo effect. Now this is not the O2's fault as I have seen other bands there that sounded great, can only be his mixer and engineers that staged it all so wrong. As for the set, don't get me started - how could he not do 'Money for Nothing' ffs. Lengthy jams were overindulgent and he should have done more Straits as clearly that's what the crowd wanted, but I would forgive him that had it not sounded so BAD.
