Posted by jpluimers on 2019/04/29

Missed this during the hectic last years, but bumped into it by accident: [WayBack] BBC Radio 2 – Ken Bruce, Mark Knopfler performs live, Mark Knopfler performs live in the Radio 2 Piano Room.

Tracks performed: Romeo & Juliet, Good On You Son and The Boxer

as part of [WayBack] BBC Radio 2 – Ken Bruce, Mark Knopfler performs live

Mark Knopfler, the singer-songwriter, guitarist, producer and the lead singer of Dire Straits performs live in the Radio 2 Piano Room. Mark is about to release his 9th solo studio album ‘Down The Road Wherever’ which features 14 new songs written by Mark. The album has been inspired by a wide range of subjects, including his early days in Deptford with Dire Straits, a stray football fan lost in a strange town, the compulsion of a musician hitching home through the snow, and a man out of time in his local greasy spoon. In addition to producing his own records Mark has also produced albums for Bob Dylan and Randy Newman. The multi Grammy award winning artist has also composed film scores, been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and is considered one of the greatest guitarists of all time.

I also missed the “new” 2018 studio album Down the Road Wherever – Wikipedia:
