Mel Botes -Dire Straits Tribute

Mel Botes - Dire Straights Tribute

A Tribute to Dire Straits featuring the multi-talented musician and master guitarist, Mel Botes & Band

This show promises everything audiences have come to expect from the virtuoso. Like in the case of his previous shows, this show features an overview of the complete anthology of the band and its enigmatic front man, Mark Knopfler. The title is derived from their definitive song with the same name, which has of course become a standard in serious guitar playing repertoire.

The well known Dire Straits songs include Money for nothing; Walk of life; Calling Elvis; Telegraph Road; Private investigations; Romeo and Juliet and the hauntingly beautiful Brothers in arms, to name but a few. This list of box office hits is augmented by a selection of other stunning Dire Straits songs that include the popular The man’s too strong. Add to this some of Knopfler’s best solo tunes including Darling pretty and Sands of Nevada.
