As per MK News...credits Klaas credits

But this is great! Copenhagen is one known location where he and his crew filmed throughout the whole show.

LE
I personnally enjoyed the tracker tour, some of the versions are among the best ever which I played most often:
-Sos: renewed old licks, Sion version is top notch with the sound problem in the middle that led to funny comments from Mark;
-R&J with sax, great to have again;
-TR: ok, a bit slower, a bit less technical than say 2005, but much better sound, cristal clear. Sion version is the best again for me.
-Bia: great renewed intro, Cristal clear sound
-YLT: great touching intro (She's gone), great to hear again with Nigel
-OES is back ! Love it
-GH: Well played and great
-SAN: Superb and Crystal clear
-HFB: Great sound
-KOG: greater than in 2013
-MT: a bit long but original with Jim
-Postcards: fun as usual
-LAJADAS: good new song
-Skydiver and Broken bones: not great but fun
-Mighty man: quite impressive sound

All in all, quite worthwhile to me ! Will love the live film...

Because there'll be another tour in the future :lol

But seriously, I hope he would rethink his touring a bit, because for another "standard" 999 shows tour I think I'd stay at home.

I agree with LE.  Even regulars were less well done than usual. 

BB - worst opener ever.  Offers nothing musically.  Just get it over with and onto the next song.  VERY gentle opener for the old guy.
R&J - sung with less power and emotion.  Sax mixed with vocal during final verse and solo sounds quite strange - don't like it at all.
Sultans - very few versions on the whole tour are error free!  Vocal again is emotionless on this one giving the song even less energy.
OES - not a patch on the DS version.  Mark's guitar remarkably silent during the lyric part devoid of the licks to carry the tune off.  The Dullards don't have the energy and power for the outro either.
HFB - well past it's best as Mark slows down.  Really struggling with this now.
Marbletown - just gets longer and more boring!
YLT - never been good live and it's worse now than it's ever been.  The intro is just a waste of a couple of minutes too, but lets the old boy catch his breath!
Postcards - alright when you're there but unless you're at the gig it's band intro fare.
TR - dropped.  Why?  Listen to some versions just before he dropped it and you'll realise.  Dallas is probably the worst I've heard.  There are some good versions from the tour but none are better than previous tours.


Positives:
Laughs and Jokes - Just can't help but feel he can always do the final solo better and longer, but it's always enjoyable anyway.
MM - one of the best songs at the concert.  Never thought much of this song on the album but sitting at the concert this was magic.
KOG - some of the 2015 versions were the best ever and he seemed to find something in the solo that was missing previously.  A pity he stopped playing it.
SAN - again, some of the very best versions in 2015.  I can say Toronto 2015 was the best ever!


So the idea would be to take music from lots of concerts and edit them into the two filmed concerts (Copenhagen and Barcelona).  I don't see this happening, especially if Guy reads this post!

I'd rather see a Golden Heart style tour; small scale and shorter.

Personally, I don't see the point of a live Tracker album.    We already have the Tracker downloads and of those I purchased I only listen to one - Manchester, which I really enjoy.   I am looking forward to the documentary and, of course the new album, though.

I agree with LE and dmg that the Tracker tour wasn't one of MK's best, but some songs were really good - MM and KOG especially.

Again, I agree with dmg that a Golden Heart length of tour would be best with, perhaps, more songs, rather than a very long tour where the set list just gets shorter and shorter as the tour progresses.

Why have a tour, anyway? Take a look at Van Morrison, at his early 70s he have concerts everywhere all the time without army of soldiers preparing the stage, million of concerts in a row, ect. And he visit unusual places, festivals, new towns every time. I especially love when he do shows in smaller venues. Yes, tickets are pricy, but not to the point of not going there.

Recently I was in Barcelona on Van Morrison's show, it was a festival under clear sky on the sea shore, not exactly a small venue, but he was relaxed and as smooth as a man can be. Forget about "tours", just go out there and play music! Like Sir Paul McCartney, like Sir Van Morrison. Maybe we should knight Mark so he will do the same for us? Oh, the Queen should do this, okay...

Why an album should be an excuse to play live, anyway? I'm a bit of tired of his standard "recording—album—tour" schedule, because when people say things like "it was his worst tour" you know something isn't right. Either that or I'm really afraid of the "New Album Name" Tour.

True.  Why stick to this stringent regime all the time?  One would think he doesn't have any back catalogue to choose from and he needs new songs to play!  :lol

I stick to my opinion that Sion 2015 was a top-notch show - the last one I attended, first row in open air, Mark right in front of me and on fire, very good Sultans and TR - maybe not the most technical ever, but really enjoyable. I really hope I can see another one in future...

Total static setlist throughout the whole tour, Mark seemed tired from the first night on, bad opener, Privateering played much sloooower, total autopilot CBC, Hill Farmer and Sultans guitar songs made me cringe and feel embarrased that he dares to play them still, or slaughter them, Sax on R&J totally not fitting, tour date announcement in small parts total desaster for making plans, official recordings sounded utterly crap, made me think I hope no one of my people will be able to listen to this or they will ask me how I can be a fan of this...  Mark's vocals not good from Dublin on, he missed more lyrics than ever...
I think that was it... 
I saw him in Dublin, Hamburg and Munich. .. In Hamburg I literally almost fell asleep during Postcards, no joke...
The whole tour, even Guy's diary, seemed utterly bored. And boring.

How I miss the 2013 tour... daily setlist changes, powerful guitar playing, good vibes... Listen to the later shows in July from Dijon or Padova 2013 and compare to the Munich 2015 recording with open ears.

Still not sure if I will buy tickets if another tour is announced, really the impact of 2015. As much as I really love the Tracker album, the "live magic" is totally gone since 2015. Best part about it was and is the opportunity to meet all the great AMIT people and fans..

Okay, I see. I'm sure there is (sadly) some truth in what you say. I didn't see/hear that much of a difference between 2013 and 2015 (even thought hat the Sultans solo was a less embarrassing in 2015), but then I only went to one concert per tour - not a statistically valid sample. What I do remember that I was outright shocked when I heard that he made "Broken Bones" the opener, but funnily, when I listen to Tracker-tour concerts now, I kind of like it. But yeah, a change of personnel, more setlist changes and a goodbye kiss to Sultans certainly would make the next tour a better experience. Speaking of which: Of course you'll go. Don't be silly. Hey, it's Mark Knopfler!

I tend to agree with a lot of what you say, LE.   I was at four of the concerts - Manchester, Newcastle, London O2 and RAH.   Of these, Manchester is definitely the best and I'm still enjoying listening to the recording. The others, though are not up to MK's usual standard, especially Newcastle which is unlistenable for me, due to the poor sound quality.   In fact, Manchester is the only one I still listen to and MK seemed to have a lot of energy at this concert.   Interestingly, Manchester was the concert which was remixed after a lot of complaints.   Generally, though the official recordings were not as good as on previous tours, from those I have heard. of course!

At Manchester I really enjoyed SOS, MM, KoG, Skydiver, TR and GH  but just like you I dislike the sax on R&J - it completely ruined the song for me.    Also I feel that HFB has run it's course now and should probably be dropped next tour.

I still listen with pleasure to the 2010 and 2013 concerts!

I'm with you, this is the first tour I went away wishing I hadn't bothered. Set list was dull and as I said at the time MK was not match fit. I can't listen to any of the recordings from the tour. I did however love Broken Bones but I think I'm on my own with that.

May I suggest you listen to Sion 2015. Superb sound, very good SOS, TR, HFB, SAN and LH.
Yeah maybe a bit less energetic than Saint-Julien 2013 but si much emotion. Performances are even better than Manchester's, altough Manchester recording sound quality is unique !
So it really depended on the night and recording quality...

You're not alone. And it wasn't all bad. I believe that is exaggerating. But everyone can have their opinion of course:-) Although I agree MK could've done better overall. It wasn't bad, but he could've done better.

Another broken bones fan here. Drop marbletown. Drop Ylt, oes, speedway, brothers, sultans, and I am forgetting a few. Do a whole new setlist,...i understand one needs a few all time favourites, for the general public,  bring back some you have not played in ages, tunnel, money, private inv. (?), your own sweet way..maybe add a cover, forever young, some Clapton 1988-89 song, apache...stir the shit up. The catalogue is so massive.

It may be a little "left field" for some and may not do the song justice without Paul Franklin and "The Box", but YAYF could be a serious contender for the next tour.  Its not fast so no hugely challenging solo's, but provides a new song for the set list, it ticks the electric guitar box, and OES is an awesome version which could sit with the new material MK writes these days.  Basically MK can just stand there and make one of his mighty Pensa's howl!

He would just replace PF with the folkies.  He would be trying to get them into the song in any event!  It would still be nice to hear this OES classic though.

Personally, I don't see the point of a live Tracker album.    We already have the Tracker downloads and of those I purchased I only listen to one - Manchester, which I really enjoy.   I am looking forward to the documentary and, of course the new album, though.

I agree with LE and dmg that the Tracker tour wasn't one of MK's best, but some songs were really good - MM and KOG especially.

Again, I agree with dmg that a Golden Heart length of tour would be best with, perhaps, more songs, rather than a very long tour where the set list just gets shorter and shorter as the tour progresses.

True, but there is a lot to do with the sound to make it better than the downloads. Listen to "Real Live Roadrunning" and compare it with the downloads. It's a different league and to me that has a lot to say. I rarely listen to the downloads, and that is mainly because I don't like the sound of it. They sound a bit strange in my ears.

On the subject of 2015 recordings, since the Bleecker company is not defunct surely it is possible to share any of our audience recordings now on the tracker.  One of my favourite shows sound wise is from Woodinville 12.09.15 as it is so rich and warm with plenty bass and no annoying clapping nearby.  The instruments actually sound in-tune as well, unlike the Bleecker recordings!

I was at the Manchester show, it was good and MK had energy. But the recordings, and even the remix are bad. I can listen to them now but only because the memory of the sound from the show night has faded!
It's a shame the downloads are so rubbish though, Liverpool 2013 sounds great as does Manchester 2010 when despite his bad back his playing was superb!

Will I go again? Yes of course but probably only to one show - which is a shame because I'd love to see him in a different country and environment, and one day he won't be touring and I'll say I should have gone to more shows! DS in 1992 was my first ever gig, still regret only going to one show even though that tour had a static set list as well!!

I think it is not possible, they still have rights, and as an official stuff, is against the rules of the tracker.

Anyway, privately, I can share all of them with any fan who wants them. PM me.

Are you saying audience recordings can't be shared if there is a live download, or not sharing the live download (which makes much more sense)?

Quality of 2015 recordings was bad beyond belief... I still can't listen to the decent recordings of Brothers In Arms song without thinking "Oh, see, you CAN set the right volume for this accordion, it's not rocket science". But among tons and loads of other mistakes this accordion... man... If you can't even set the volume right, how come you're working with MK?

I was at the Manchester show, it was good and MK had energy. But the recordings, and even the remix are bad. I can listen to them now but only because the memory of the sound from the show night has faded!
It's a shame the downloads are so rubbish though, Liverpool 2013 sounds great as does Manchester 2010 when despite his bad back his playing was superb!

Will I go again? Yes of course but probably only to one show - which is a shame because I'd love to see him in a different country and environment, and one day he won't be touring and I'll say I should have gone to more shows! DS in 1992 was my first ever gig, still regret only going to one show even though that tour had a static set list as well!!

I was also at the Manchester show and, I agree, it was excellent, but I am also enjoying the recording and imo it is one of the best of those from 2015 I have heard.    Even so, I have to agree with you that compared to Manchester 2010 it is nowhere near as good regarding performance.   Of all the MK concerts, Manchester 2010 is the one I listen to most and never tire of hearing!   I was also at Liverpool 2013 and although it was a really good show, MK's voice was a bit croaky. :)

On the subject of 2015 recordings, since the Bleecker company is not defunct surely it is possible to share any of our audience recordings now on the tracker.  One of my favourite shows sound wise is from Woodinville 12.09.15 as it is so rich and warm with plenty bass and no annoying clapping nearby.  The instruments actually sound in-tune as well, unlike the Bleecker recordings!

Fully agree! Hill Farmer for the first (and best) time... and the sensation of having that long version of Marbletown.... back then...  ::)
I really loved True Love Will Never Fade, he nailed it and Danny had a good drive on it... great Sultans... even Cannibals worked much better as an opener than Broken Bones...  the Why Aye Man/What It Is combination at the beginning really brought a lot of energy although WII was shortened...

I was at the first night in Amsterdam at the front and I remember being sooo excited!    It was such a surprise to hear so many songs for the first time and an extended Marbletown too - we didn't know what was coming next, being the first show!   The second night was great too with Devil Baby!    I think of 2008 as the Ragpicker's tour, because of so many songs being played from that album.

Does anyone have a complete list of the shows that were filmed by Hansen?
Hope the live footage will contain full songs opposed to some voiced-over fragments of live material as seen before in MK documentaries. If they recorded enough shows it must be possible to compile a decent live set, sure hope so as the Bleecker recordings aren't too good soundwise and a single show would contain far to many mistakes by MK.

I wouldn't hold my breath for full length songs. In Copenhagen they shot for a couple of minutes then moved around, shot a couple of minutes, then moved. They had fixed positions both in front of and up on the stage in a circular kind of motion.

It was HH and his cameraman with a tiny HD-cam on a tripod. It looked kinda funny with one man directing another using one single cam.

What was confusing was that the Tivoli Garden's had fixed cameras on stage as well since they had two enormous LED-screens on each side of the stage. So it was hard to tell if that was a part of it. We'll have to wait and see. :)

Mmmm, I think you guys overestimate the words "live album".
What it means is a separate CD with a live album, not the video one, I think.
And should they release it? Of course, because more CDs means more $$$$$$$$$$$$$$.

But when I saw "in-concert" film I thought about something like the latest Roger Waters documentary or this:

Click in the news and you'll get a expanded info:


30th June, 2017

Henrick Hansen, who did the short film for the Tracker album promotion, is to do a Mark Knopfler documentary scheduled for a 2018 release together with an in-concert film featuring live performances from the Tracker tour. A Tracker live album to accompany the documentary is also under consideration but not confirmed.

I am actually very excited over the documentary. I think Hansen´s five minute Tracker film is fantastic, and I don´t know how many times I have seen it. To me, Tracker is Mark´s most personal album so far, and the documentary suits that very well. I think it captures the man behind the music in a beautiful way. If we get a 90 minute film of this caliber, then  :clap :clap :clap

In my opinion the problem with Sultans is that when improvising Mark plays very slow and melodic licks and then suddenly he moves on to those classic fast licks. It feels disconnected, there’s no sense of continuity. Anyway, I don’t want to deviate from the topic, sorry.

On Henrik's website there is a new category: http://henrikhansen.net/feature-films

with "Mark Knopfler - untitled feature documentary", the pic is from the Tracker short film, but the Tracker short film itself is listed and available under the category "shorts". So maybe this could be a hint for things to come.
Maybe they used the "old pic" not to give away new material?

I think Henrik Hansen has recorded sessions for the musical as well, as you can see an accordion player which is not credited for the MK record and also bassist Ewan Vernal...

I made this screen captures:

- All the band clapping. I recall they did something like this for the song "Privateering", I heard some clapping at the single so it must be it
- Glyn Johns with MK. Maybe he was just paying a visit, I dont recall he was involved in the record nor the musical
- McGoldrick and the accordion player (maybe is the one who played in A shot at glory and Crimson, which name doesnt comes to mind now)
- Ewan Vernal on bass. He was the bassist in some promo gigs and also in the history festival with MK, usually plays with McCusker

The clapping scene cannot be from the Privateering days as Mark aquired these glases only after October 2016.
And Henrik wasn't around yet in those days, too.

No, Tom Walsh is there so this is from these sessions. There are clapping in "Good on you son"

Also Ian Lowthian... so maybe he is in the record too buy we don't know yet  ???

Well, the announcement for this documentary said it was accompanied by a "in-live" blablabla, so maybe it is the documentary and then live takes from the four of five concerts they recorded plus scenes of the touring... Let's wait and see.

And Henrik wasn't around yet in those days, too.
Are you sure? I was at the Privateering concert in Amsterdam, and I was seated at the first ring, on the right. About an hour and a half before the show I saw Mark walking around and discussing things with technicians. I remember thinking: "that's a fashionable pair of glasses he's got there!".
I'm not the kind of person to swear on something, but I'd swear on my MK GH press kit, that he wore those glasses back then!

Not that it matters, there's still no news of the  HH film...

Indoor images are probably from the concert in the Palace Theater in Albany NY on 11th October 2015. @4:38 you can see MK carry out his stretching excercises. On the mirror is the dated program for the afternoon/evening. (5 pm MK soundcheck, 8 pm concert).

I wonder if the illness that befell the band had anything to do with the fate of this project.  I mean a good part of this was filmed at the show in Barcelona when the bug was still present if I recall and performances did suffer.  Some concerts in Spain that tour weren't the best.

Copenhagen was also filmed though, and from the video it seems they did Albany too, which was the best show of the three (but no TR).

It will be interesting to find out who has been interviewed for this film too. I hope a trailer will be released at some point too.


ooooooh a trailer, just imagine that!!! that would be awesome....

We have a trailer already, it's called "good on you son" videoclip.

it's a 'trailer without music' , it's more an 'are you kidding me?' video

At least it provides an idea of the material Hansen has recorded and might be on the documentary.

he also was at the Chalk Valley History Festival so I guess something from that might get used too.

I still don't believe is going to be released. I'm too used to wait for dvd releases that finally are not released. I remember Madrid 2001 dvd had a proposed release date, and we all know how that went...

I copy that Knopflerfan, it was kind of surreal. I hope we will see some of it in the documentary. I sent an email to HH in the beginning of March, but no reply. One email must be ok, but I don't feel like pushing it.

My experience was even more surreal... I was sitting in a desk having something to eat with my friends and MK and his family arrived, bought something to eat and sat in the table next to us!!!!!

It was quite surreal, nobody noticed him or pretended not to notice him. He passed walking by in front of me and I didn't noticed him either. One of my friends left his seat like he was Flash and in a blink of an eye he was saying Hi to MK and shaking hands, and also in a blink of an eye I took my phone and took a picture of the moment as I noticed what was happening!.

All was so quick that I don't remember how it happened... Mk, his wife and youngest daughter went to buy something to one of the food tracks and after that, came and seat in the table just next to us, he made a movement with his head toward my friend, and they stayed there having their food, just next to us, and nobody said a thing to them, we didn't bothered them either further than that shaking hands from my friend that was very polite and didn't last more than 10 seconds... My friend actually is very shy but he couldn't resist!

What a story. Thank you for sharing. 
Because we all know how important his privacy is to him, it was very respectful of you and all of the others not to bother him.  :thumbsup

We're still at early June...

A usual release date might be autumm 2021 but considering MK is recording a new cd, and how lazy are they, probably, it Hansen's video gets released, would make it as a bonus dvd in MK new album...

A bonus DVD in connection with the next release would indeed be a good idea.
