Today, as a special offer to the Mark Knopfler’s mailing list subscribers, you can now listen to the track “Rocks and Water,” from the musical theatre adaptation of Local Hero.
Mark Knopfler wrote the music for the original film released in 1983 and it has now been adapted for theatrical performances. The show ran for 12 weeks at Edinburgh’s Lyceum theatre in spring 2019, and received standing ovations and amazing reviews.
Local Hero was due to be performed in London at the Old Vic Theatre this summer. Unfortunately, has been postponed due to Covid-19 restrictions.
Once there will be a chance to purchase tickets we will let you know. “Rocks and Water” features Damian Humbley on lead vocals, and was recorded at British Grove Studio earlier this year. The list of musicians who have been worked on this project includes:
- Music and Lyrics by Mark Knopfler
