John Illsley and Band at the Bluesgarage Isernhagen – that was a mandatory act for somebody who grew up with the Dire Straits. I extremely enjoyed John Illsley – he turns 66 at Juni 24th – and his band, as well as the programme – a mixture of new songs and Dire Straits classics.
The atmosphere in the packed Bluesgarage was excellent. Many visitors also waited patiently for autographs after the show. The entire tour seems to be a great success as the videos on YouTube show.
My absolute favourite was Where Do You Think You’re Going? – the last song of the evening. Some videos that were recorded in other concerts of the tour I have linked on the bottom of this page
