A TRIBUTE to one of the world’s premier rock bands, Dire Straits, is set to shake Huntingdon Hall to its foundations on Friday (December 13).

Money for Nothing’s abundant energy and performance makes them a must see for any rock enthusiast or Dire Straits fan.

Fronting the band is the brilliant guitarist and Mark Knopfler sound-alike Aled Williams.

Behind him the line-up features top-class and experienced musicians that make this band a worthy tribute to Dire Straits. Aled and all the band have studied Dire Straits in great depth to re-create their tribute to be as close as possible to the real thing.

Featuring all the hits from their first ever single ‘Sultans of Swing’ to ‘Brothers in Arms‘, ‘Walk of Life’ and their last single released in 1992 ‘The Bug’ – also the legendary ‘Money For Nothing’ (ft Sting) which was the first ever video played on MTV.

The band also include versions from ‘On the Night’ and ‘Live @ The BBC‘.

The Money For Nothing stage show has been performed all over Britain and the world, at all types of venues and events – from music festivals, theatres and venues.

2010 saw them headline the main night on Europes Biggest Tribute Festival.

The band have also had the pleasure of performing as show opener for the legendary Roy Wood on part of his Theatre Tour.

In their current tour, world famous saxophonist, Nigel Hitchcock, joins them as a special guest.

Nigel is Mark Knopfler’s current saxophonist and has recorded and performed with many other stars including Joe Cocker, Tom Jones, Robbie Williams and Gary Barlow.
