When Mark Knopfler set out on his Down the Road Wherever tour, he knew it would be an adventure as he put together his largest band yet -- with 10 members.
Mark Knopfler on why he chose to tour with a 10-piece band:
Among the songs he has taken out of mothballs for this tour are two from his Dire Straits days -- "Once Upon a Time in the West," which he never did as a solo act, and "Money For Nothing" for the first time in five years.
Knopfler just finished up a two-night stand in New York and up next is Boston tonight (Thursday).
He performs in Nashville, September 3rd; Atlanta, September 4th.
