The Straits to play greatest hits during UK tour

Fans of the Dire Straits can hear three original members of the original group when they reunite for a UK tour.

Alan Clark, Phil Palmer and Chris White come together as The Straits and will play through the band's impressive back catalogue, including hits like Money for Nothing, Walk of Life and Sultans of Swing.

They will be performing in front of those booking Birmingham hotels at the city's Symphony Hall on Monday October 3rd.

Gigs then follow in Glasgow, Newcastle, York, Cardiff and Bristol, before the band round things off with dates in London, Ipswich, Nottingham, Liverpool and then Manchester on Monday October 17th.

The trio will be joined by some of the top session players from around the UK to bring the Dire Straits' unique sound to their fans.

Last year, former lead singer Mark Knopfler toured the UK, and the guitarist could hit the road again next year to celebrate the release of his next, upcoming solo album.
