In 1985, Dire Straits were at the apex of their career as one of the biggest music brands and concert touring bands in the world. Still today, Mark Knopfler remains one of our most beloved guitarists in modern Rock. Their biggest album, Brothers in Arms, still sits in the top 10 of the best selling albums in chart history.

“DSUK…in tribute to Dire Straits” began touring in 2016 and have quickly become regarded as *the* quintessential tribute band among Dire Straits fans with their incredible attention to musical and sonic detail, the humour, fun, and interesting history that they pack into their shows. To say that “dS:uK” sound like Dire Straits is an understatement. And don’t take it from us – take it from our audience on the streets:  “…these guys are the epitome of a tribute band: they play and sound like you want to them to…”  “…Thank you for a great evening in Worthing this week. Being a fan of Dire Straits for the last 50 years, you did not fail as a tribute band…”

Their 2025 “Brothers in 85” tour, once again, pays tribute to the worldwide Brothers in Arms tour, with the band bringing fans the ultimate 1985 Dire Straits experience and all of those legacy songs that you want to hear, including Sultans of Swing and Money for Nothing!

Here comes Johnny singing oldies goldies…. it’ll truly give you a shiver in the dark!
