Just like in 2011, Mark got the invitation to go on tour with Bob Dylan again, this time in the USA and Canada. Mark's association with Dylan dates back to 1979 when he played on Dylan's Slow train coming sessions and then produced Bob's acclaimed 1983 release Infidels. Basically, the concerts turned out to be a Mark Knopfler set of about 70 minutes, then a stage changover followed by a set of Bob Dylan. Interaction between Mark and Bob was limited to Mark playing a few songs with Bob on several shows. The line-up for Mark's band was the same as in 2011 and this time the setlists featured some more songs from Mark's new album Privateering. Unfortunately, no official recordings were made during this tour.
