No ‘Dire’ Need For This.


 DIRE STRAITS: Is There a Dire Need to See This Line-up?




Two former, non-original members of Dire Straits are billing themselves as The Straits and are hitting the road here in the U.S. next month.

Keyboardist Alan Clark and saxophonist Chris White, who joined in 1980 and 2002, respectively, will be joined by Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers’ drummer Steve Ferrone and others for the tour, which starts on February 28th in Michigan and runs through March 29th in Las Vegas. We reached out to Dire Straits founder and frontman Mark Knopfler for a comment, but he was unavailable.
