No problem Superval, better to ask twice than not. Very important to have drinks and meals together  :D

Thank you Geordie! Any nice pub suggestions in the city centre of Newcastle?

@ Geordie -  Can you also recommend any good places for a pre-concert meal/meeting place close to the venue?   Thanks!    :wave

Well the most scenic pub is the Bridge Hotel just by the Keep (Castle) mentioned in Basil, this is a nice pub. Or the Bodega Bar on Westgate Road, this won pub of the year.  I frequent them both often!! As for eating there is a good Chinatown selection in Stowell Street and on the quayside there is the Broad Chare, which is very good. There are some nice eateries on Dean Street and Grey Street as well. There are a lot of restaurants to be honest! Cheers!!

Thanks Geordie, so you can decide where we will meet before the concert. A place where it's nice to have some food and drinks. Not a real restaurant, because some people may not want to eat. So a place where we can meet and feel free to have a drink and who wants to must be able to egt some proper food. Convenient if it's not too far from the venue. I will make a thread in the Tracker Tour section for this, so if you can add the location and hopefully join us then we already have the pre-concert-meeting for that one done  ;)

5.15 A.M (Mark Knopfler) (5.57)

LYRICS

5.15 a.m.
snow laying all around
a collier cycles home
from his night shift underground
past the silent pub
primary school, workingmens club
on the road from the pithead
the churchyard packed
with mining dead

then beneath the bridge
he comes to a giant car
a shroud of snow upon the roof
a mark ten jaguar
he thought the man was fast asleep
silent, still and deep
both dead and cold
shot through
with bullet holes

the one armed bandit man
came north to fill his boots
came up from cockneyland
e-type jags and flashy suits
put your money in
pull the levers
watch them spin
cash cows in all the pubs
but he preferred the new nightclubs

nineteen sixty-seven
bandit men in birdcage heaven
la dolce vita, sixty-nine
all new to people of the tyne

who knows who did what
somebody made a call
they said his hands
were in the pot
that he'd been skimming hauls
he picks up the swag
they gaily gave away
drives his giant jag
off to his big pay day

the bandit man
came north to fill his boots
came up from cockneyland
e-type jags and flashy suits
the bandit man
came up the great north road
up to geordieland
to mine
the mother lode

seams blew up or cracked
black diamonds came hard won
generations toiled and hacked
for a pittance and black lung
crushed by tub or stone
together
and alone
how the young and old
paid the price of coal

eighteen sixty-seven
my angel's gone to heaven
he'll be happy there
sunlight and sweet clean air

they gather round the glass
tough hewers and crutters
child trappers and putters
the little foals and half-marrows
who pushed
and pulled the barrows
the hod boys
and the rolleywaymen
5.15 a.m.

In MK's solo time, ONE of the best song ever.
A track that could be inside in Making Movies or Brothers in arms

I guess it was just too challenging for his voice, partly because the key is higher than it was on the record due to the standard bass tuning.

It's an instant classic, fitting for autumn and winter evenings. And it's a song from his drawer of vintage creations that had time to develop, as I understand.
And she's sitting in her Lusso, in the early morning sun.
