Mark Knopfler live at Trädgårdsföreningen, Gothenburg
All right, so last night was awesome! I got to see one of my life heroes in one of my favourite cities. Mark Knopfler is, have always been and is always going to be my favourite guitar player and you guys can only imagine how cool it would be to get the chance to photograph one of his concerts.
Not that I didn’t try. I must have contacted all the people that were involved. Mark’s website, livenation, universal music, trädgårdsföreningen… but the access to shoot this concert was very strict… Better luck next time ey?
Anyhow, the night was great, it started out with What It Is and ended with Brothers in Arms and So Far Away. And all in between he played Privateering, Romeo and Juliet, Postcards from Paraguay and Telegraph Road. YES, I’m disappointed that they didn’t play Sultans of Swing or Money for Nothing… But I can understand if he’s tired of those songs 😉 haha
We got good weather, a great crowd and we all had a blast!
Thank you Mark!
