Now we know why he wears that ridiculous big clothes in the promo pictures...
You might get lucky, now and then

Just shocked.  I've seen recent pictures but to see film footage is staggering.  There is no way he can tour in that shape.

He is not like Paul Simon Mick Jagger or Roger Waters. All in their 70’s and looking good, fit and in shape.
I wonder how the tourschedule is going to be. Probably the same as usual with a few more gaps... But by the looks of the pictures i understand why he is talking about this could be his last big tour. Then again, what is wrong with being almost 70 and talking about that. It is normal....

I think that the event was pretty much a tribute to him as an artist, a man of huge musical knowledge and an opportunity to distinguish the city of Cesena as a city of music worldwide. Since Tracker, I think Mark is attracted by Italy and its beautiful culture and history, this might be another reason why he attended the event, maybe he bought a house there too, who knows.

While in Italy, I guess he could join Dire Straits Legends now and then. Sit in and play rhythm guitar in Marco's band. Actually, I'd love if Mark had had that type of sense of humor.

yes, quite logical, and also, add a pinch of love over gold to it and you might save your imagination from working overtime... 8)

So did anyone had the nerve to watch it in full? The translation and the pretty bad sound made it hard for me to watch, gave up after 2 minutes. Did he tell something new? I heard he talked about coffee somewhere? What was that about?

At some point he has been asked if he will be touring in italy. He said he will definitely be back in italy next year - sometimes during summer. He pointed out that they have to manage both things next year, the musical and the tour.
It was also quite funny that he also said that the Good on you son Video is not really a video but they just have had film material and did put it together, not really related to the song  ;D

So that's the most interesting he said during all the interview?

Nothing else about the new record, the musical and the next tour than that?

It was difficult for me!  Regarding Good On You Son he said it was about a person from humble beginnings (in this case in the UK) that has made a success and moved to LA (not sure on the connection there).  Alas the interviewer didn't press him and enquire if it was about anyone in particular.

He took some questions from the audience, most of which were inaudible.  One encouraged him to retell the Sting in Monserrat on holiday anecdote.  Another asked if there was a future for the guitar in music to which Mark answered: yes, but not for me (or something like that).

yeah, nothing really new about the album, the musical or the tour. It was more general, about being a musician and why MK is the musician he is (doing a good song and a good record and then he is happy)
