DS:UK Dire Straits tribute show comes to Towngate Theatre

During the 80’s and 90’s, Dire Straits were one of the biggest music brands and concert touring bands in the world. Still today, Mark Knopfler remains one of the most beloved guitarists in modern Rock. Their biggest album, Brothers in Arms released in 1985, still sits in the top 10 of the best selling albums in chart history.

DS:UK… In Tribute to Dire Straits began touring in 2016 and have quickly become regarded as the quintessential tribute band among Dire Straits fans with their incredible attention to musical and sonic detail. To say that dS:uK sound like Dire Straits is an understatement.

Their 2021 “Brothers in 85” tour pays tribute to the worldwide Brothers in Arms tour, with the band bringing fans the ultimate 1985 Dire Straits experience and all of those classic songs that you want to hear.

They will be appearing at Basildon’s Towngate Theatre on Friday 13th May.
