One of the four founders of Dire Straits, the ex-bassist of the band John Illsley have already confirmed and started his UK 2017 Tour.

This time, his special guest may be his longtime friend and ex band mate – Mark Knopfler. They together will be on the whole ride around UK.

This UK tour is first for John after over three years, with a brand new band including Robbie McIntosh and Paul Stacey on guitar duties. This time, John will perform many classics songs from Dire Straits and other songs from his recent albums Long Shadows and Testing the Water.

John says: “The new songs fit very comfortably next to the Dire Straits classics which we keep alive with the right energy and feeling.”

The next show is for two days on 24 October, and after that are following another 16 shows in a row till 26 November 2017.
