The band Dire Straits was originally formed in London in 1977 and they soon reached the top of the British charts with their single ‘Sultans of Swing’. What followed was a juggernaut of hits lasting through the ’80’s up until 1995 when the band decided to call it a day. Mel Botes and his band have been performing the songs of Dire Straits at venues across South Africa since 2014. Mastering Mark Knopfler’s guitar style is a daunting task, but Mel has the attention to detail necessary to reproduce the subtleties in playing and tone that feature on songs like ‘Telegraph road’ and ‘Why Worry?’

Mel will be joined by a top-class crew of some of South Africa’s finest musicians to take you through a collection of Dire Straits’ biggest hits, including ‘Money for Nothing’, ‘Romeo and Juliet’ and many more. The second half of the show will feature music from some of the greatest rock guitar heroes. The band will be playing songs by Eric Clapton, Pink Floyd and many more iconic artists.
