Dire Straits star live at the Hall

Rob George 21st Jan, 2020

AN EVENING of music and memories of Dire Straits will be on offer when John Illsley takes to the stage at Huntingdon Hall.

Along with Mark Knopfler, John was a founder member of the legendary band who sold more than 120million albums during their time.

The evening will feature classics from Dire Straits history as well as a question and answer led by Paul Cummins, a former member of the band’s management.

John first took his ‘Life and Times of Dire Straits’ on the road last year and the show proved so successful he’s back out and about sharing memories once again.

And to compliment the touring activity he recently released a highly acclaimed new album ‘Coming up for Air’ featuring his trademark style and distinctive vocals.

The show rolls into Worcester on Thursday, March 12 from 7.30pm
