Let’s pop over to Australia for the final night of Dire Strait’s Brothers In Arms tour from April 1986.
As with many groups, the best known Dire Straits songs are not necessarily their best tracks. This show features a mixture of hits (at the time) and some lesser-known songs.
Mark Knopfler and Dire Straits always seemed to fly just a bit under the radar, and like Kid Creole, probably didn’t get the full recognition they deserved. It was the 80’s and they didn’t have many dance moves to show off on MTV, though they did have some success with videos.
This is a good show for a hot night, so kick back and enjoy…
