Official announcement DSL Dire Straits Legacy Brazil 2020 Tour
Due to concerns about the coronavirus (COVID 19) and preventive measures adopted by the Governments of the States, the Brazil 2020 tour of the DSL Dire Straits Legacy band, which would begin next Wednesday, March 18 in São Paulo, was postponed to September .
The health and safety of everyone involved in the tour – public, artists and professionals – is a top priority at this time.
Tickets already purchased are valid for new dates. More information about September dates and a refund policy will be released soon for those unable to attend the new dates.
In early March 2020, we have 4 shows in Florida then we play one sold out gig on a cruise ship and spend the rest of the week-long cruise sitting back and relaxing while it sails around the Caribbean Sea (see our gigs page). Interestingly, when Alan was 19 years of age, he spent a year playing in a band on a cruise ship that left from the same dock in Miami and sailed around the Caribbean on week-long cruises.
On Sept 14 we played in Arzachena in Sardinia, and on 21 Sept in Molfetta in southern Italy. Both were outside shows and a good time was had by all. Our sax player Mel Collins is currently on tour with King Crimson, so we brought in Andy Hamilton who has played with just about everybody, notably George Michael, and on drums we brought in Andy Treacey who is famous for being the drummer with Faithless. Both were amazing. Between those shows, “the man in the red coat” and lovely geezer Jack Sonni played a gig in a club in Milan, and Marco watched Alan record an EP with an Italian band who shall remain nameless (for now).
We love Brazil. There’s a song on our 3 Chord Trick album called Two Days Off, which is, strangely enough, about 2 days off. We were in a nice hotel overlooking the sea in Florianoplis, Brazil, and we had an impromptu party on the beach which lasted 2 days. And Alan wrote a song about it. Brazil rocks! We’ll be back!
Our South American tour starts in Belo Horizonte, Brazil, on March 29, and we’re playing in Santiago, Chile, and Buenos Aries, Argentina.
