Setlist: 1. Why Aye Man 2. Walk of Life 3. What It is 4. Sailing to Philadelphia 5. Romeo and Juliet 6. Sultans of Swing 7. Done with Bonaparte 8. Song for Sonny Liston 9. Boom Like that 10. Speedway at Nazareth 11. Telegraph Road 12. Brothes in Arms 13. Money for Nothing 14. So Far Away Tonight was a shorter setlist but Mark Knopfler still played for about 2 hours. Excellent performances of Speedway at Nazareth, Brothers In arms, Sultans of Swing, Money for Nothing and Sailing to Philadelphia are worth mentioning. The audience was really quiet and restrained thorughout the show compared to Berkeley. No one was really dancing or singing through out the night. Maybe they were just being polite. It is a shame because I think the band feeds off the audience's energy. I still think everyone enjoyed the show nevertheless. The show was at a small outdoor theater, that fit about 1600 people. It resembled a club gig, which made it very intimate despite the shorter setlist. In fact the stage was so small that the band didnt have room to bring out the mini kit for the sit down section of the show. Only a part of the PA and lighting was set up. It was kind of funny watching the band leave the stage after So Far Away. Everyone was chanting for more, but I could see from my vantage point, the band quickly dashing to their getaway car.
