Dire Straits Legacy with Big Country
Red Comet Productions is proud to announce two of the ‘80s greatest bands, all coming together LIVE on Tampa Theatre’s historic stage for one night only at 8:00pm Friday, March 6.
While Dire Straits no longer exists in its original form (and any slim hope the band will reform has been quashed by reports that Mark Knopfler may never tour again), DSL* Dire Straits Legacy brings together five of the original musicians who recorded and toured as members of Dire Straits, including Phil Palmer, Danny Cummings, Mel Collins, Jack Sonni, and Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Alan Clark. They are joined onstage by frontman Marco Caviglia, one of the world’s leading authorities on the music of Dire Straits and Mark Knopfler’s guitar style; legendary record producer and bassist Trevor Horn; and Primiano Di Biase, one of Italy’s most sought-after keyboardists.
“Dire Straits cannot exist without Mark Knopfler,” the band says, “but we are the next best thing. DSL* Dire Straits Legacy brings the music of Dire Straits – played by the musicians who made it – to fans who have been starved of hearing it for far too long.”
Big Country broke massively worldwide with the release of their album The Crossing’s classic singles “Fields Of Fire,” “Chance,” and their signature song “In A Big Country,” which went on to sell more than 2 million copies and drive the album to three Grammy nominations in the USA. The run of success continued throughout the 1980s with the release of the anthem single “Wonderland” and their second album, Steeltown (1984), which debuted at No. 1 in the UK and featured the hit singles “East Of Eden,” “Just A Shadow” and “Where The Rose Is Sown.”
