ZARAGOZA 1992 - THE FINAL CONCERT
|Venue||Estadio de la Romareda, Zaragoza, Spain|
|Date||9th October 1992|
DVD-Video containing the final concert of the On
every street world tour 1991-1992. It's also the final concert in the
history of Dire Straits. I have mixed feelings seeing this one. For me it's a
period I will never forget and I wish I could experience it all again. But let's
face reality; Dire Straits is history... What a great tour this last tour was.
It was a marvellous time with lot's of articles in newspapers and magazines, TV
& radio broadcasts, concerts sold out within no time, a powerful nine piece
band, concerts ranging from small venues to big stadiums, an amazing light show,
a road crew up to 100 people, three stages leapfrogging around and up to 43 trucks of equipment.
Starting at the small venue "The Point Depot" in Dublin (23rd August 1991) and
ending the tour 14 months later in the big stadium of Zaragoza, the final
concert. This video is certainly not a good one, it's blurr and the image
flickers between colour and black & white from time to time. Some songs miss a
short piece of the beginning, but apart from that the concert is complete.
Including the small speech from Mark Knopfler in which he thanks the band, the
crew and says goodbye to the audience. It's an historic moment, the end of an
I saw three concerts on this tour myself: 28th September 1991 (Ahoy, Rotterdam), 30th September 1991 (Ahoy, Rotterdam) and 30th May 1992 (Feyenoord stadium, Rotterdam). Thanks Dire Straits for the great memories I will cherish for the rest of my life!
