MARK KNOPFLER AND FRIENDS, 24th JULY 2002
|The Notting Hillbillies & Dire Straits
|Shepherd's Bush Empire, London, UK
|24th July 2002
|DVD-Video containing the second charity concert from the July 2002 series on behalf of Teenage Cancer Trust by the Mark Knopfler & Friends band: The Notting Hillbillies for the first part of the gig, then Dire Straits (with John Illsley and Chris White) for the second half where Jimmy Nail came on stage for backing vocals on Why aye man, Money for nothing and So far away. Unfortunately, two songs are missing on this DVD: Brothers in arms and Money for nothing (a complete version of this concert can be found on the DVD A Straits thing). Apart from that, a very interesting concert with some nice arrangements on What it is, Romeo and Juliet, Baloney again, and including new songs Quality shoe and Why aye man from The ragpicker's dream album. Great to hear also the Dire Straits sound back again! Filmed from the centre, a bit to the back but with very nice close-ups. Including nice menus.
