Well just got back from the 'Alice' after flying out early Friday morning after the Brissie Gig- hence the delayed review. Nevertheless it is still well and truly entrenched in my mind. No question about it- I loved the night. But I always knew I would. Look I am the old Mark Knopfler fan that is very happy to sit and listen to him play his first 4 albums live every night. Could miss out the Money for Nothing era and still be extremely comtempt with the song set. Yet I really enjoyed the new solo material on stage especially Speedway to Nazareth and Sonny Liston. Sure he looks a lot older now than he did in 83 but the clarity of the guitar still is unique and is something you never get sick of hearing. I was sitting close to the front of the stage and thought bugger it I'm 40 this year I'm heading up to the front of the stage- only to be told to ge back to my seat or outsy I go by some boffy security guard. Bugger it! Never die wondering I suppose. I met all the Dire Straits boys in 83 - Gee I wonder what my fully autographed cassette covers would sell for now. CD's what were they? During the concert Mark thanked the Aussie ENT Dr's that had rescued his voice during this Aussie tour and it still sounded strong in Brisbane. How would he have gone now playing those 14? straight concerts he did in Sydney years ago. The band played well together but you rarely notice them as the Boss is leading the way and your eyes are fixed on him. However Matt who played the accordian had the spotlight once and shined. Some of the crowd kept yelling out for Tunnel of Love to be played but after sticking to his usual setlist the chances of this happenning were zip. We did not hear Trawlerman's song so Brissie was one short of the norm. Look I'm not too sure when he will be back to Oz or if at all but I have always wanted to see him play in my favourite city London at Royal Albert Hall. So that will be my next aim.Would be great to take my 3 kids but I think they would rather see Avril Lavinge now. Yet hopefully this time I may hit the front of the stage and really enjoy it the way I wish I could have. Now that would be something worth reviewing!!

How awesome was Mark ? Last saw him in Melbourne with the Dire Straits gang. Took my sons to that gig in 1991. Now they are 20 and 24 and reciprocated in Brisbane on St Pat's Day 2005 Yeah ! The crowd enjoyed all of Mark's new stuff but it seemed we really wanted to hear the old ! You could tell by the audience response when Mark asked for requests! The menu included Walk, Sultans, Romeo , So Far, Brothers, Money, good but... Telegraph Road was stunningly brilliant! Unreal light show! If I was rich, I would fly to NZ just for the privilege of hearing the virtuoso, one more time. A magic evening which I will never forget

Brilliant concert I loved every minute of it. It was great to hear "Telegraph Road" and "Romeo and Juliet" again. The concert was very entertaining and had good variety of songs, I enjoyed Mark's solo songs as much as the Dire Straits songs. The band was just wonderful and Mark's playing is still as good if not better than the last time I saw him in Brisbane.
