'The Straits' made the audience rise to their feet

'The Straits' played an hour long gig for the See Rock Festival in Graz, Austria on 25th June 2011. Although it was 'The Eagles' concert, there were a lot of people come especially to see 'The Straits'. The Band was in its top form and performed a cool concert infront of many thousands of people. After the gig lots of fans asked the Band for photos and autographs.

'Nice surprise last evening in Graz. Thanks guys for gig!' Gabor

The Straits' Royal Albret Hall Concert

22nd May 2011 - Royal Albert Hall was filled up with people which came to listen one more time the wonderful Mark Knopfler's songs written during his 'Dire Straits' era and performed by old DS members Alan Clark, Chris White and Phil Palmer along with Steve Ferrone, Terence Reis, Mick Feat and James Squire.

Some opinions about the concert:

Chris White forever!
I love that guy. And? Alan Clark too. Great great musicians!
Steve Ferrone is a good choice on the drums. Reminiscent of the Clapton tours with Mark Knopfler back in the late 80's and early 90's, and more particularly, reminds of the Knebworth festival with the dream team (Dire Straits/Clapton/Elton John)!

Great gig tonight at the Royal Albert Hall, I was too young to see Dire Straits on their hay day but I'm glad I've seen The Straits now - great setlist and loved that you played my faves Your Latest Trick and Brothers in Arms - thanks for a great night.
