Dire Straits icon Mark Knopfler has announced a six-date UK arena tour for May 2019.

Part of a larger European trek that opens in Barcelona in April and wraps up in Verona in July, Mark will play headline UK shows in Leeds, Newcastle, Glasgow, London, Manchester and Birmingham in May.

Tickets to the ‘Down The Road Wherever’ tour are on sale now. 

The tour supports the album of the same name, ‘Down The Road Wherever’, which is released on Friday 16th November on Mark’s own British Grove imprint via Universal/Virgin EMI.

Mark says of the tour: “My songs are made to be performed live. I love the whole process of writing them alone and then recording them with the band, but ultimately the best part is playing them to an audience live.

“I enjoy the whole circus, travelling from town to town and interacting with this group of players is a total pleasure. I’m really looking forward to it.”
