Dire Straits' Mark Knopfler is to embark on solo tour

Mark Knopfler, the lead guitarist and vocalist in Dire Straits, is set to head off on a solo tour of the UK next May in support of his latest album Privateering.

Fans should book Glasgow hotels for Friday, May 17th to catch him on the first date at the SECC. He then heads to the likes of Liverpool, Cardiff, Birmingham and Brighton, before finishing with a run of six dates at London Royal Albert Hall between Monday, May 27th and Saturday, June 1st.

Privateering is his eighth studio album as a solo artist but marks his first double album in his extensive 35-year recording career.

Spanning 20 tracks, it features a mixture of folk, blues, country and rock, drawing upon a wide variety of influences and showcasing Knopfler's exceptional musical talent.

He first made his name founding Dire Straits in 1977, leading them to worldwide success over two decades until they split up in 1997.
