"Bob Dylan Is Joined By Mark Knopfler For European Tour"

      Two Legends Together

Dylan And Knopfler

European music fans are getting a special treat this fall as Mark Knopfler, the founder and legendary lead guitarist of Dire Straits fame joins Bob Dylan on tour.

Dedicated music fans that are old enough to remember Dire Straits first self titled album will remember that Mark Joined Bob Dylan as producer and guitarist for  Bob Dylan's Infidels album. Knopflers “modified claw-hammer blues” finger style of playing his custom Schecter Stratocaster guitar makes him not only one of the greatest guitarists of the rock era, but a unique stylist.  His virtuosity brings an especially blues sound to Bob Dylan’s music. Since the breakup of Dire Straits, Knopfler has kept a low profile on the rock scene preferring to release more folkie and country sounds such as found on the albums All the Roadrunning (with Emmylou Harris), Kill to Get Crimson and Get Lucky.

Mark Knopfler and band will perform at all shows in Europe.
