Mark Knopfler To Bring 'Down The Road Wherever' World Tour To UK And Ireland In May

Monday, 22 October 2018 Written by Laura Johnson

Mark Knopfler will bring his Down The Road Wherever world tour to the UK and Ireland next spring.

The trek shares its name with this new album, the follow up to 2015's 'Tracker', which is due out on November 16.

The former Dire Straits lead singer and guitarist will be joined by expanded 10-piece band for arena shows in Leeds, Newcastle, Dublin, Glasgow, London, Manchester and Birmingham during May. Tickets go on general sale at 9am on November 2. Knopfler said:

"My songs are made to be performed live. I love the whole process of writing them alone and then recording them with the band, but ultimately the best part is playing them to an audience live. I enjoy the whole circus, travelling from town to town and interacting with this group of players is a total pleasure. I’m really looking forward to it."
