Depending on how the tour is promoted - meaning making it clear it's a tribute band - I'd go check them, especially to see AC live.

First time that 3 DS players came to Argentina.  Last night Alan, Phil and Jack
They were all nice.
I do not like Marco Caviglia's performancies, he lacks of any MK sense.

Is Trevor Horn still in the band? He wrote that song I seem to recall?

I´m not being hateful. Don´t get me wrong, i love tribute bands, but like we say in our land, the whole thing is an "I want but i can´t". Despite having good ingredients (Alan, Ferrone, Collins), tho whole recipe is a mess. About 2013, when they had Pick on drums, they made several good covers of the DS songs (hit and miss, to be honest), but nowadays, this only gets worse. I think that Caviglia and Palmer are guilty of this disaster.

Im not commenting about considerate and promote youself like "The original band" or even "The continuation of Dire Straits", but, jesus, the whole set is lacklust. They sound, slow, tired, not appealing, without shining solo parts ¿Where is Alan?, Collins (brilliant sax player, i love his recent live works with King Crimson) put some interesting arrangements, but sometimes is too much, Caviglia sounds average on guitar (my neighbour is a just a "beedroom guitarrist" and plays better. I mean, Caviglia does not make anything special) and horrible on vocals (Danny or Trevorhorn sing much better), Ferrone doesn´t sound good in many songs (despite of being a wonderful drummer) and the accordeon in songs like MFN or is something that deserve a punishment.

Just my 2 cents

If we think about a tribute act, this is one of the most presuntuous, and one of the worst sounding ones. Honestly, i prefer to listen small or medium bands of friends who play DS songs with love, respect and humbleness, and even sounds good!! without pretending being the successors of anything. They are who keep the legacy, not this fakers.

Absolutely agree with this.

Yes, well said, that's basically what I meant by 'shameless' while at the same time proposing the whole thing as something official or semi-official
