Dire Straits Experience to perform in India this March

Dire Straits Experience - Terence Reis & Chris White

The lines between concerts and causes seems to be blurring these days. After Coldplay, who performed in India as part of the Global Citizen festival last year, it is members of British rockers, Dire Straits who are playing for change. Slated to perform in Gurgaon and Bengaluru, the classic rockers will perform at Seagram 100 Pipers’ ‘Play For A Cause’ on March 17 and 19 respectively for a concert that supports providing sustainable drinking water to villagers in Rajasthan.

While guitarist Mark Knopfler, who exited the band in 1995, performed in India in 2005, the upcoming concert will see two other ex-members of Dire Straits perform for the first time in India. Featuring English saxophonist Chris White as well as drummer Chris Whitten, fans can expect a setlist of old favourites such as ‘Money for Nothing’, ‘Walk of Life’, ‘Sultans of Swing’ and ‘Tunnel of Love’ among others. “India has always been on our list and we are very excited to play in India,” adds White, who will visit india for the first time.
