Touring is a serious business and requires a lot of planning. For each tour, itineraries (travel plans) are made. Mark Knopfler's management usually creates A5 size tour itineraries for each tour and sometimes also pocket size itineraries were made. These itineraries are very rare (only made for band, management and touring personnel) and therefore hard to get. They include information for tour dates, venues, hotels and travel arrangements for both band and crew. Also listing crew & band members as well as managers, promotors, tour related offices, load-in times, times for soundchecks, venue capacities and more. I thought it would be great to dedicate a section to these highly interesting itineraries so fans can see what they actually look like. I listed all the ones I know from the huge On every street tour onwards. Some of these itineraries are part of my private collection. Fellow fan and the biggest collector I know, Mimmo Carrata, is the proud owner of them all and was so kind to scan the front covers of all the itineraries that I am missing. So, a big thank you to Mimmo for helping me out with this to make this section more complete!

Note: I only created this section to show what these rare itineraries look like. Don't ask me for details which can be found inside, I will not reveal any content for privacy reasons.

If you have any Dire Straits, Mark Knopfler or The Notting Hillbillies tour itinerary that is missing in my collection and you are willing to sell it or trade it for material from my bootleg collection, please contact me.
