Back in March, for my 40th birthday, my dad bought John and I tickets to the Mark Knopfler concert. Do you remember him? He was in the band Dire Straits? Anyway, I grew up on that music, they were my dad's favorite band and I have many memories of the music being so loud in our home, the windows would rattle.
Mark has gone out on his own now and his and Dire Straits are some of my favorite music to have playing in the house.
The concert was at the Orpheum Theater in Minneapolis - a great small venue for a concert like this - and we had a great time.
In spite of the fact there were large signs all over stating how it was illegal to bring in cameras or video equipment, I'm sort of a rebel and not only brought in a camera, but a large camera with a telephoto lens:) No one seemed to mind.
It was great to get out with John and eat, drink and talk without interruption and be able to see a great concert.
I'm going to add one of my Dire Straits favorites to my music on the blog - it's called Romeo and Juliet - check it out.
