    Default Dire Straits

    The last great reunion that can possibly happen.

    Would be great if they headlined Coachella 2013.

    Oh helllllllllll yes. As a sub-headliner though. Don't want people to bitch incessantly about them as a headliner.

    I'd be so into it. More so if they played Tunnel of Love, but Mark hasn't since his dad died because it was his favourite song. Very sad

    I absolutely love Dire Straits, they've been one of my favorite bands for years, but they are right there with Clapton and Fleetwood for me in terms of "Awesome, but wouldn't work at Coachella", unless there is a chance that they could be billed low enough to get off main (not remotely likely). A Mark Knopfler solo set on the Outdoor might work, but even then there are better festivals for that (I hate to say it, but Bonnarroo, also Hardly Strictly Bluegrass, Sasquatch, etc).

    jeez, MTV really fueled that band's record sales. Most likely more than any one else. I did like "Action Motion" sports blooper one, but wouldn't really care to hear it live.

    Ironically, Brothers in Arms is probably the second-to-last album I would reach for (or click on in iTunes as the case may be) if I were in the mood for Dire Straits.

    The fact that they sold 32 million albums doesn't mean they could headline.

    Alanis Morrisette is the next on that list at 32 million and no way she could ever headline.

    Is it because she would be a lady headliner? Could No Doubt headline???

    Bands often take the amount of platinum records they have and multiply it by a million even if platinum in the United States and Latvia or 2 different numbers.

    This just in from my 17 year old son: "Dire Straits could never headline. They wouldn't even play at night."

    How long should I ground him for?
