Fans' concert reviews
Capitol Theatre in Aberdeen, UK on Sun, 07 Dec 1980
Promoting their ‘Making Movies’ album the band appeared in Aberdeen to the apptoval of their many northern fans. Buses were run from the outlying provinces to fill the Capitol theatre to near capacity. The new material was duly played to an appreciative if seated audience; not until their early standards were blasted out did the rush to the stage take place and several encores produced to demand by a boisterous but good natured crowd. Eventually the clamour subsided as the back-catalogue was depleted and people dispersed to catch trains, buses or lifts home. The highlight of the night had to be ‘Romeo & Juliet’ in near total darkness, with the spotlight reflecting off Knopfler’s resonator guitar into the crowd, the silent crowd hanging on every phrase and pause before the band joining in and swelling the sound.

Café Opera in Stockholm, Sweden on Thu, 24 Oct 1985
I was there and saw MK drink something out of a JD bottle on stage. Maybe it was JD?
Perth Entertainment Centre in Perth, Australia on Mon, 14 Apr 1986
An incredible concert with possibly the best sound quality I have ever experienced at a live venue.
Southampton University Student Union in Southampton, UK on Wed, 25 Jan 1978
still remember this, not for Dire Straits but for the Talking Heads as well. think it cost me 50p to get in. There was a third band which I think were called Split Ends. Great night.
