Mark Knopfler toured with Eric Clapton on several concerts in 1987, 1988 and 1989. The concerts were part of the 25th Anniversary tour. Mark also played one or two of his own songs on most of the shows, mainly Money for nothing and on some shows also Solid rock. Guest musicians appeared on some of the shows during these years. 1987: Phil Collins, Steve Winwood and Sting. 1988: Steve Ray Vaughan, Elton John and Sting. 1989: Carole King. Since I don't follow Clapton very closely, the dates below are based on the MK Diary that was created in the past.
