Mark KnopflerOne of Britain's biggest exports returns to the prestigious venue for six special nights to promote his latest album Privateering ("a warm, authentic and durable record" - The Telegraph). The former Dire Straits frontman is hailed as one of the greatest guitarists of all time and has sold in excess of 120 million albums. At these eagerly anticipated Royal Albert Hall concerts Mark Knopfler's full eight-piece band will choose material from his eight solo albums, as well as the major Dire Straits hits including Money For Nothing, Sultans of Swing, Romeo and Juliet and Walk of Life. Since leaving Dire Straights, Knopfler has matured into a master of low-key country blues, eclipsing even Bob Dylan with his thoughtful musicianship and genuine soul when the pair toured together in 2011. This should be quite special.
