AWESOME AS ONLY KNOPFLER CAN BE

Folks should not expect to attend a MK concert to hear old Dire Straits songs. He left DS behind in 1992 and has not looked back. Country blues and folk and deliciously mesmerizing guitar playing along with his distinctive vocals was the bulk of concert, but Speedway at Nazareth was the crown jewel. His backing band which consists of highly gifted musicians who have been with him for many years are a joy in themselves. Moody Theater is a great intimate venue. Highly recommend and I’ll be there in September to revel in Marks exceptional talent again

REAL MARK KNOPFLERFAN

I saw him in Philadelphia 8/17/19. Sell out show, played Dire Straits song, I love his solo albums way better. It was a great show, Shame it wasn't a riot for some of you who thought the music sounded like a funeral dirge, it's great music played by a great band and a brilliant guitarist.

ALL THE WAY FROM AUSTRALIA

I traveled from Perth, Western Australia to MK, didn’t want risk he would make it down under as no tour dates announced, but if he comes to Oz will go and see him again. Fantastic concert, did some of my favourite songs so very happy.

PHILLY 8/17

Having attended every MK tour, I must say the Philly show on 8/17 was nothing short of magnificent! The incredible interplay that occurs among the band members does not go unnoticed. I can’t imagine a better ensemble of musicians to compliment Mark’s songs. Everyone’s ability to naturally harmonize and interweave their playing is truly remarkable and enjoyable. I enjoyed every minute of the concert! MK concerts are NOT Dire Straits concerts, so DS fans expecting that will be disappointed. I too, prefer MK's solo work over DS.

LAYERED AND GORGEOUS

Came up from Philly for this concert and was sooo glad we did. The sound was perfect. Could hear every note of every instrument. Loved the variety of instruments and talent on stage. Like an orchestra with the loveliest, softest, purest of sounds all playing off each other like voices. Seeing the joy in the audience really added to the experience. Worth it!

MASTERFUL

Everything I had hoped for and more. The mix of instruments and the level of talent around him was masterful. Beautiful synergy and flow of oid and new music. Loved every minute. A beautiful night in open air pavilion on Boston harbor made for a magical night. One note to some of these other comments about song choice... you bought tickets to MARK KNOPFLER... NOT Dire Straits... so that’s a YOU problem. I thought the mix was perfect. He’s a genius artist still sharing his craft and talent with us after all these years. Be grateful and respectful of his evolution and get out of your high school head.

MUSICIANSHIP AND SOUL

Me girl and I flew to Boston for a destination show. Mark and band treated us to a a layered and harmonious joy of an evening. Nearly a dozen musicians, subtle, folky tunes...the mix was perfect, the artistry, exquisite. His new material is timeless. He's a troubadour in the most traditional sense, relating stories through song. Couldn't have better. A magical evening.
