The Dire Straits Experience

The Dire Straits Experience will perform in Eldborg September 10.

After the monumental success of “The Straits” concert which sold outin 30 minutes in 2013, former Dire Straits members Chris White and Chris Whitten together with five world class musicians are bringing “The Dire Straits Experience” to Harpa!

Over 20 years have passed since Dire Straits disbanded, leaving a catalogue of some of the finest compositions and musical performances that the heyday of rock ever produced. If anything, their reputation has only grown with time. Record sales of more than one hundred and twenty million albums continue to increase as new young fans discover the music and join the band’s massive worldwide following.

It was against the backdrop of this two-decade break – and an increasing demand to hear one of the most dramatic songbooks in rock history played live again – that members of Dire Straits, Alan Clark, Chris White and Phil Palmer formed The Straits for a charity show at The Royal Albert Hall in 2011.

With Knopfler enjoying a successful solo career, Alan Clark called upon the singer songwriter, Terence Reis to front the band in his absence. By the time The Straits ended, three and a half years later, the band had played more than 150 shows in 25 countries around the world.

The universe of Dire Straits is kept alive by The Dire Straits Experience which includes Chris White and Chris Whitten as original Dire Straits band members.
