John Illsley ‘The life and times of Dire Straits’ – Cancelled

John Illsley

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]John Illsley first took his show on the road last year. It played across nationwide venues, even taking in Glastonbury festival, and proved such a rip-roaring success that he’s doing it all again this Spring. Joined by old friend and Dire Straits co-manager Paul Cummins who will be quizzing him on times past, John will also be playing many Dire Straits’ classics together with three members of his band.

Of course John Illsley is well placed to talk about life on the road and what it means to be in a band. He knows all about it, from humble beginnings to international travel, hectic schedules, massive arenas and exotic places to record.

A founder member and long-time bass player of Dire Straits, John Illsley was a major part of one of the biggest bands of all time. They sold well over 100 million albums, spent 1,100 weeks on the UK album charts alone.

The show is a fascinating eye-opener with some wonderful music thrown in – an utterly entertaining and unique night out.

We have a pair of tickets available to see John Illsley at Regis Centre, Bognor Regis on 25th March 2020 at 7.30pm.
