Waldo always tells me that in Belgium they still have horse-wagons and no electricity at all...I hope MK will bring his own power supply :-) (Actually i think Waldo is just kidding, but you never know... :))) Eating Noella's fries is a good idea. One for me, please! :-) And some hotdogs, too. Wau-wau :-))

J'ai vu tous les concerts de Mark en Belgique (y compris LE SHOW-CASE et les concerts de D.S ), c'est toujours l'extase..... Le TELEGRAPH ROAD joué à Anvers, la perfection, le bonheur total.

After a nervewrecking cat and mouse game with the eager securitystaff,the rebellian germs of the crowd broke even...mark and band from up close instead of the birdcage up in the roof, pfff, what an atmosphere!!! SALUD to this musical piece of mastership!! next year we'll try no doubt about it, to stage a few skydiving acts ;-)

Fabuleux! Mark Knopfler nous prouve à tous son énorme talent de guitariste. J'étais de ceux qui se sont déplacés au bord de la scène, et franchement voir MK de si près était inoubliable. Merci Mark et rendez-vous est pris pour la prochaine tournée...

During "Why Aye Man" I thought "Oh no, his guitar is almost impossible to hear compared to the other instruments"... But then the technician probably found the correct button and there it was... and it never stopped for almost 2.5 hours! This was my third MK concert and it was the best. A pity about the acoustics though, but hey it could have been worse Anyway, during "Our Shangri-La" MK proved he has a singing voice after all! The other songs were a bit difficult sometimes, with his voice barely making it on "Rüdiger" for example. But the guitar play WOW. Sultans Of Swing and Telegraph Road could have gone on for hours if I had something to do with it... I was already a believer, but yesterday I became a religious freak :) I have seen God and he was playing a guitar!! Thanks for the great gig MK and see you next time!!!!!

Je ne suis pas tout à fait d'accord avec le commentaire ci-dessus. Il ne faut pas râler sur les gens qui sont allés devant le scène mettre de l'ambiance car, je pense et les commentaires de guy Fletcher le confirment, que si personne ne l'avait fait, il n'y aurait pas eu autant de rappel. De plus il faut surtout râler sur des sociétés comme Clear Channel qui font payer des prix largement surfait pour des places de concert. Le montant à déboursser pour aller voir un concert devient proibitif et inabordable. De plus les gens peux scrupuleux qui prennent plus de places pour en revendre en noir empêchent les autres d'y avoir accès. Certe l'acoustique de la salle n'est pas parfaite, mais on peut souligner la prestation technique de l'ingénieur du son pour la proporeté de celui-ci. De toute façon en Belgique il sera trop tard quand les grands décideurs décideront enfin de mettre de l'argent dans la culture plutôt que dans le foot et autre sport débile qui ne véhicule que de valeurs d'argent, de dopage et d'inbécilité. a+

Je ne serai pas aussi paradisiaque que les commentaires précédents... Rien à dire quant à MK et sa bande, ni au choix de la setlist... MAIS je me DOIS de réagir face à l'acoustique de MERDE de cette salle pourrie... Ceux qui ont "triché" et sont venus de tout derrière DEVANT la scène et ainsi DEVANT les braves gens qui avaient payé pour être assis face à la scène auront dû être ravis... Soit je n'en faisais pas partie (ni des gens assis face à la scène ni parmi les autres) Coup de gueule également par rapport à ce "public" de vieillards qui restaient tous assis trop sagement comme au cinéma ou face à Charles Trenet... Ambiance désuette loin d'être digne de Mark et de ses (excellents) musiciens Pour résumer (durement ce concert) qui je le répète n'a RIEN à voir avec la prestation proprement dite: - Acoustique à chier (sorry pour le vocabulaire mais il est à la hauteur de la déception) - Public INDIGNE du talent de MK Désolé de jetter ce pavé dans la marre mais je devais me défouler...

Unbelievable concert!! I love great gitarists and i love great songwriters. Mix it and you have Mark Knopfler, intelligent music that really blows your mind. Live, he still can rock as hell (Speedway at nazareth, money for nothing,...) and he can play with so much emotion (rudiger, brothers in arms,...). After so many years Sultans of Swing and telegraph road is still alive and kickin and just fills the whole place with joy and fun! Only too bad that he didnt play postcards from paraguay and back to tupelo from his new cd but hey, if he would play all the songs I love he would be playing for a couple of days i guess :-) The sound was great (dificult in het sport paleis) and the setlist was superb. An evening to remember, thank you Mark!

Great performance of MK and his band, Mark is like a very good wine, how older he is the better he become's. Also good work from the sound-technician because the Sportspaleis is not the best acoustic place to do a concert, but yesterday the sound was very good. Just the best concert of the year !

I'm still walking on the "Telegraph Road". What a superb guitar firework !!! Setlist perfect, Mark and his friends also. And thank you for the 6-pieces encores-setlist !!! (Brothers in Arms/Money for Nothing/So Far Away/Our Shangri-La/Mist Covered Mountains/Going Home !!!)

Quelle soirée !!! Terriblement bon. J'avais eu la chance de voir MK en 96 et en 01 mais hier il était tout simplement encore meilleur. Un "Sultan of swing" géant et un splendide "Our Shangri-la". Reviens vite...et encore merci pour ce moment.

One word : fantastic !!! I've been to MK since the early 90's, but this is defethe best concert in Belgium. The crowd was amazing. You saw that Mark was enjoying the concert as well. The guitarwork was terrific, especially Sultans of Swing and Thelegraph road were suburb. The setlist was well chosen. The bis-numbers were also fantastic and you saw the Mark wanted to stay on stage. I would say : thank you Mark and come back soon. And maybe you can play then 'Tunnel of Love', I'll love to here that live!!
