Former Dire Straits bassist JOHN ILLSLEY is back with a new album and tour this Spring.
John Illsley - The Life and Times of Dire Straits - “An Evening and Q&A of Music & Memories” stops off in Eastleigh, Wimborne and the Isle of Wight in March, featuring classic songs and a Q&A led by ex-Dire Straits manager Paul Cummins.
John will also rock out some tracks from his new album, Coming up for Air.
We caught up with John recently to find out how he selected stories for the tour, his thoughts on the recent Queen biopic and who he gets mistaken for in the shops.
You can listen back to the full interview with Damien St John here:
