In some fantastic news for Barcelona, Mark Knopfler has announced he is set to perform live in Barcelona next year, visiting the city as part of a huge European tour.
He made his name as the front man of the Dire Straits, a rock band formed in 1977 which experienced incredible success through six albums. Their most famous is the 1985 release of Brothers in Arms, spawning hugely successful singles such as `Money For Nothing` and `Walk of Life`. It`s the seventh best-selling album in UK chart history as well as one of the world`s best selling albums with over 30 million copies.
Since splitting back in 1995, Knopfler has gone on to develop a formidable solo career, releasing seven albums of his own material with the most recent offering being 2012`s Privateering.
Sure to be a hugely popular event, tickets are expected to sell out fast when Mark Knopfler performs at the city`s Poble Espanyol on the 25 July. With tickets going on sale from the 26 September, why not team yours with a stay in one of the nearby hotels in Barcelona
