I must admit to being a little disappointed with the recording of Dylan shows last year and the fact that his fans just ignored recording Marks set.  Even if not for themselves, then it would be a non-selfish act to record it for the MK fans in the hope that we would reciprocate.  If we all did each other a little favour - and it didn't put us out - then it would make us all a little happier.  Of course it's completely up to the individual what they want to record. :)
fully not true. only one bob taper ("Spot") explicitly declined. ALL others taped both parties.

I stand corrected then.  It just seemed that way to me when I perused Dime.  I fully apologise to any tapers offended.

Anyone know what this is about?

Posted on markknopfler.com
Friday - Sep 21, 2012

There seems to be some confusion about the form of Mark's performance on the upcoming North American tour with Bob Dylan. Mark will be performing a 70 minute set with his own band prior to Bob's performances each night. These will be full electric and the band consists of:

Mark Knopfler
Guy Fletcher
Richard Bennett
Glenn Worf
Ian Thomas
Jim Cox
John McCusker
Mike McGoldrick


We look forward to seeing you there.

Oh, I could imagine that a lot of "ignorant" Americans  (sorry for sounding harsh, it is just that old prejudice) or let's better say "ignorant Bob Dylan fans"  couldn't give a damn about what was happening with Bob in Europe last year - as long as he not toured the  US. Now it is all new to them - including asking if MK is maybe playing an acoustic set alone, or if he and Bob play together - all the same kind of questions that arose last year BY US when the first information came up.  ;)

Yes, the old prejudice that made us think that most of the Americans thinks that Europe is a country...

Well, not most of them, probably just the ignorant that, according some friends living in the States, is a big part of their country.

Just prejudices, but I understand that maybe most of them ignored the European tour, probably as much as we will ignore or not care too much about this American tour, as it happens too far from us to care...

It would be a different thing if you had not the view of the 2013 MK tour for sure. Just imagine this Bob Autumn 2012 tour would be the only live outing from MK - I am sure AMIT would keep a big interest of course. And for sure I will look at every show that is reported about referring set lists and recordings!!  ;D

I can't help feeling a little detached from this tour somehow.  The weaker than usual build-up and the fact that we don't have that many forum members from NA go together to make for a detached feeling, like I'm not really a part of it.  Usually we get a few reports each day and I really look forward to hearing what our friends have to say because our opinions matter!  This time though, we don't have the coverage - so to speak - so I won't be quite so eager to race to the computer and discover the treasures of last nights show.  Don't misunderstand, any MK tour is still worth getting super excited about and there's still Guy's excellent diary as well.  Oh, and the little matter of the bootlegs!

I would be very angry when MK chose to change the set list every night in any other way than 2011 - and we would not have any recording!!! Better he plays exactly the same set list as 2011, then it is not so hard to stand not to be there...

Thanks for the heads up on the nonworking link. Here's a cut and paste version as well as a working link.

Very nice article indeed. Am I wrong or, with a few exceptions, MK is admired by everyone he works with?
