An evening with John Illsley about the Life and Times of Dire Straits – “An Evening and Q&A of Music & Memories”.
Along with Mark Knopfler, John was a founder member of the legendary band who, during their time together, sold over 120 million albums.
The evening will feature classics from the Dire Straits history and include a Q & A with a/v led by Paul Cummins [ex-Dire Straits management}. Paul will be asking questions, during which John will reveal the story and development of the band from its humble beginnings in a council flat in South London, where songs like Sultans of Swing and Wild West End were created, on their journey to playing all over the world to millions of fans, making albums in London, New York, Montserrat and Nassau; performing and and working with some of the world’s most influential and creative musicians and producers.
