John Illsley founder member of Dire Straits

 The bass guitarist of Dire Straits has had a remarkable musical journey since 1977, selling over 120 million albums and picking up a few Grammy’s on the way as well as an Ivor Novello award in 1988 for “ Outstanding contribution to British Music”

In April of this year Dire Straits will be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame which John has said to be “a great honour”

 The show will feature all of the well known songs from Dire Straits such as Sultans of Swing, Money for Nothing and Brothers in Arms plus songs from John’s latest album “Long Shadows” which was released in May last year.

“ the new songs fit very comfortably next to the DS classics which I still love to play and it seems people love to hear.”
