THE DIRE STRAITS EXPERIENCE
Shiver in the Dark – World tour 2024/2025
An unforgettable concert experience in the most famous hall in Zagreb!
The Dire Straits Experience amazes its fans with an exclusive show of a cross-section of the greatest hits. The only downside to the event is that they can only sell 1,800 tickets, so you’ll have to work really hard if you don’t want to miss out on this unique experience.
It’s been more than 35 years since Dire Straits broke up, leaving behind many legendary compositions and those created during the heyday of rock. With over one hundred and twenty million albums sold, record sales continue to grow as more young fans discover their music and join the band’s global following. Against the background of that hiatus of more than three decades – and a growing need to hear one of the most dramatic pieces of music in rock history live again – Dire Straits members Alan Clark, Chris White and Phil Palmer formed The Straits for a benefit concert at the Royal Albert Hall 2011.
As Knopfler embarked on an incredibly successful solo career, Alan Clark asked songwriter Terence Reis to lead the band in Knopfler’s absence. By the time The Straits broke up three and a half years later, the band had played more than 400 concerts in 35 countries around the world.
After being invited to perform a series of concerts in New Zealand and Australia, Chris White and Terence Reis started working again in a formation called The Dire Straits Experience. They were joined by a top band with some of Britain’s best musicians.
It is enviable that they could collaborate with people from the ranks of rock legends such as Mark Knopfler, David Gilmour, Eric Clapton, Paul McCartney, Elton John, David Bowie, Mick Jagger, Tina Turner, Van Morrison, Tom Jones, Sheryl Crow and others. Chris White, who has collaborated with Mark Knopfler on film scores since the early 80s, joined Dire Straits in 1985 for the record-breaking Brothers In Arms world tour. This included their performance at Live Aid and later at Nelson Mandela’s 70th birthday concert in 1988.
He played on Dire Strais’ last album, ‘On Every Street’, and again took part in the two-year world tour that produced the live album and DVD ‘On The Night’.
