A+ show.
This is early Dire Straits so VERY different from the whole big-band 'I want my MTV' era. Musically its timeless and unclassifiable but overall it's M. Knopfler impressive in his guitar work and songwriting. Again the Rockpalast light show is dull. The songs are beautiful and this is a RARE occasion to see some of them live. The band comes across laid back, genuine. Bluesy/Rock/Folk which sounds a lot more USA than London Uk. A musical curiosity to discover. Great songs. Great guitar technique. Recommended.
