Guitar legend Mark Knopfler is to play a one-off show for charity next month.
The former Dire Straits front man will perform an hour long set with a supporting band of five leading musicians in the intimate setting of The Hurlingham Club in West London on September 9. The concert will benefit the Prince's Trust and will include many of the international hit songs of Dire Straits. In his career Mark has sold in excess of 120 million albums – he is listed in Rolling Stone magazine as one of the greatest guitarists of all time, and to many aspiring musicians he is the ultimate icon.
The Prince’s Trust was set up by Prince Charles in 1976 to offer support to disadvantaged youth through training, mentoring and financial assistance.
Tickets to the show are selling fast, and are available here.
