I saw MK and band in Amsterdam and have been following Guy and Richard's notes from the road ever since. Every concert sounds better than the one before, but believe me THEY ARE THE BEST. I wish all you lucky people a great concert, it will be. I KNOW IT IS THE LAST CONCERT AND I WOULD LOVE SCOTTY (if he were still alive) TO BEAM ME OVER TO VANCOUVER. YOU PEOPLE ARE SO LUCKY. BUT WHAT AM I GOING TO DO NOW WITHOUT GUY's WEBLOG??????

The set list from the European leg of the tour looks great and I hope they stick to it. Great to see a good number from the Dire Straits albums. Tickets for the show were pretty much all gone the first day. Should be a great show!

I'm going to Seattle show, and will most likely go to Portland and Vancouver too. In 2001, I went to all 3 Northwest shows. I know the shows are sold out, but I've always been able to get good seats buying tickets from fans who have extras. If anyone has an extra ticket, please let me know. If anyone from Seattle wants to drive up to Vancouver with me, please contact me.

After the portland and seattle shows sold out so fast, I was lucky enough to score tickets for the Vancouver show. Now I just have to count the days until showtime. I am looking forward to watching one of my inspirations in person and seeing him play selections from over all of his material. I knew of the brothers in arms album growing up and recently have bought up a bunch of his other material both of dire straits and his solo career. What a talent, I just wish I lived closer to any of the venues he plays at. Does anybody have opinions about any of the DVD material with MK that is available? (I have the music for monserrat)

Got tickets through the HOB presale. Flying up to seattle a week before the show for some R&R on Olympic Penninsula and Victoria. I will be in Vancouver the weekend of the show. Should be a great show as the tour finale. MK rocks my soul.

Great show! Did anyone catch the name of the young guy who was the opening act? I missed it.

The negative first: I drove all the way from Idaho to watch this show and after researching the venue's rules and reading the ticket, and the no camera policy was pasted every which where decided to follow the rules and leave my camera at home. Then half of the people in the four rows in front of me are taking pictures and video and no one even says a word to them. That was aggravating, I had great seats and would have been able to at least upload some pics to guy fletcher's website. The positive: Everything was great with the usual set list being played, minus Shangri-la. The old dire straits tunes drew the most applause however, three songs stood above these for me: Done with Bonaparte, All That Matters, and Song for Sonny Liston. Hearing these live blew away the cd versions. The crowd was loud at appropriate times, but I found it weird that nobody stood up for Money for Nothing and only about half for So Far Away. I tried to get everybody up but I guess they were mostly too old as one fan said during the opening act. Anyway, I will definitely be at the next tour, only hopefully closer to home.

Well, after 2 years of waiting, I can say it was well worth it. Mark played brilliantly. Having kept up on the review throughout the tour, the setlist was not a surprise. Rudiger was missing, a song I would have loved to have heard. My only dissapointment was that he did not play Shangri-La at the end. Mark just makes his brilliant playing look effortless. The audience was totally spellbound throughout the night. My favorite songs were Telegraph Road and Speedway at Nazareth (now I see why this one has been so well received, much better live) there was a beautiful rendition of All That Matters with Richard playing steel guitar. The accordian was beautiful, too. The crew was playing tricks as this was the last concert of the tour, "spiking" Mark's tea. I think they really did - he took one sip and then laughed very heartily. I was actually surprised at Mark's banter with the audience - he was very funny. When he played, tho, I don't think I saw him crack a smile all night. this was definitely one of the best birthdays I've ever had and I will definitely be at the next MK concert. Thanks, guys for an incredible night. I hope you all have some quality times with your families now. Mark is truly one of a kind. He is a living legend and may he continue to make his increible music for many years to come.
