John McCusker joined the band to play fiddle, cittern and whistle. On the tour, Mark Knopfler played six successive concerts at the Royal Albert Hall. Each of these six shows was in aid of a charity. Mark made a donation each night to a specific charity and the charity was able to make a pre-show speech and organize collections in the hall in order to generate funds. The charities were: Kidney Research UK (25th May), Barnado’s (26th May), Amref (27th May), Great Ormond Street Children’s Hospital (28th May), Trinity Hospice (29th May) and Starlight (30th May). On 28th and 29th May, Joe Brown was a special guest performing Picture of you and Donegan's gone. Unfortunately, no official recordings were made during this tour.
