Get Lucky Tour
New Album and European Tour. This is the sixth solo studio album from the legendary musician and follows 2007’s highly successful Kill To Get Crimson, which Rolling Stone heralded as 'a gem' and USA Today described as, "...yet another unpretentious showcase for his unmistakable gifts as a musician, tunesmith and storyteller." A multiple Grammy award winner as the lead singer/songwriter for Dire Straits, Knopfler combined his wry lyrics with his guitar prowess to create such major hits as Money For Nothing, Sultans Of Swing, Romeo and Juliet
and Walk of Life.
He has produced records for Bob Dylan and Randy Newman as well as scoring several films including Cal, Local Hero, Princess Bride and A Shot at Glory.
