Thirty years ago, the band split up, however that didn't stop fans from yearning for more live performances. Record sales of more than 120 million albums continue to increase as new young fans discover the music and join the band’s worldwide following.
An invitation to play a series of shows in New Zealand and Australia saw Chris White and Terence Reis collaborating again, this time to create the Dire Straits Experience. Joining them is a stellar band of some of the finest professional musicians the UK has to offer.
The show is now coming to the 3Olympia Theatre in Dublin. "I have been truly amazed and, frankly, humbled by the response we have had from the fans on hearing these songs again," White said.
"Dire Straits have the most amazingly loyal fan base. It has been so great to reconnect with people I last saw in 1992 and see them still getting so much from this music. Also, it is fantastic to make new friends among the many young people who are now discovering Mark [Knopfler] and Dire Straits. So many people still want to experience this live."
Chris White, who worked with Mark Knopfler from the early ‘80s on film scores, joined Dire Straits for their record-breaking Brothers In Arms world tour in 1985. This included their performance at Live Aid and, later, the Nelson Mandela 70th Birthday concert in 1988. He went on to play on the final Dire Straits album, On Every Street, and was again part of the two-year world tour that produced the live On The Night album and DVD.
