This time we have some pictures and videos from the concert in Newcastle Metro Radio Arena from 20th May 2015, which was one of the amazing shows in a row from the ex-Dire Straits member – Mark Knopfler.
Usually he ends his shows with his “anthem” song Going Home from Local Hero. But the finale took on added resonance at the Metro Radio Arena for the musician truly is a local hero in these parts. With such an extensive back catalogue to choose from, there was surely something for everyone and it goes without saying that the musicianship and artistry was of the highest level.
This time Knopfler performed songs from “Tracker” that were given good airing, but there were plenty of oldies too from Knopfler’s past solo work and of course something from Dire Straits songs hits like “Sultans of Swing”, “Romeo & Juliet” and “So Far Away” which are timeless masterpieces and still hold their own against the performer’s latest work.
Down below is a gallery from the show in Metro Radio Arena in Newcastle which is the largest indoor concert venue and exhibition space in the North East with capacity of over 11,000 and since it opened has been host to some of the biggest music acts in the world.
