Stand out songs for me were I Wonder If I Can Go Home Again and Big Mac.

Thanks, dusty, for your review.  Good to hear you enjoyed the show.

I have heard of many other people's favourite songs from the show and they are different ones in most cases, as yours are, so my feeling is that there must be quite a lot of good songs in the show!   ;)

Can hardly wait for my turn on 10th April!   :)

Understood. Sorry for posting it, won't happen again.

Looking forward the official recording next year and enjoying the musical in Edinburg.

However the people from the theater don't want that the musical is shared with fans that can't attend the show in Edinburgh nor in London next year and want them to wait until next year when they sell a commercial release, if that happens, so, if that's what the theater wants, it's what we'll do, despite Mark Knopfler allowing his fans to record and share his concerts, this is not a concert but a play, so the recording has been removed and won´t be shared again.

And of course, I'M NOT recording the show I will attend. I totally respect the theater wishes.

People from the theater, accept my apologies by sharing information about the recording yesterday. According to the lucky people who could traveled to Edinburgh, you have a great show running.

The whole package was just great. Mark‘s songs had great melodies and lyrics, the cast really played and sang well. There were many funny parts, we really laughed a lot. As English is not my mother language I was afraid that I would not understand everything, but we got on very well.
But I do struggle to really describe how wonderful everything was!

I went with my husband, who is not a musical or MK fan, but he really liked everything, too.

I'm just back from my trip to Edinburgh...

I was a nice travel, where I had a lovely time with one amiter that I know from very long time, Mr DMG, who shared some hours with us, digging in the misty Edinburgh, thanks for your company mate, may many interesting facts about Edinburgh, I just wished my English would had been better to understand the 100% of it, LOL

The musical was quite a great experience, I was totally delighted with it. The first half is just amazing. Funny, emotive... I cried during some parts and I realized how right was when I decided to buy tickets for it. The best decision ever.

The second half was more relaxed but with some funny moments as well, more emotive and reflexive than the first part but great too.

The songs... if you concentrate in the music played by the band, all of them are clearly written by MK. You can hear very familiar melodies specially from the MK solo career, and the lyrics, and the singing, there are some tracks that you can clearly see MK singing them when he did the demos as they have that touch, that feeling, that special way of singing the melodies, and the songs sung by the company, some of them typical musical numbers, they still have a certain MK touch and they made me feel very proud about MK being able to write something so different to his usual style and at the same time, being as good as one could expect from a musical.

The cast was splendid. I specially loved the actor that played GORDON, he did a great job, and also MAC and STELLA, but also the other members of the cast were so great that I hope they will be in the London cast as well.

I had decided that I went to London next year as well. I loved it so much!
