Mark Knopfler Sits in with Bob Dylan (Again)
Mark Knopfler’s tour with Bob Dylan continued over the weekend. Last week, the Dire Straits guitarist sat in with Dylan on “Beyond Here Lies Nothin’” during a performance in England. Last night, at Oberhausen, Germany’s König-Pilsener-Arena Oberhausen, Knopfler emerged for an even longer stretch of songs. At the start of Dylan’s show, Knopfler took the stage for “Leopard-Skin Pill-Box Hat,” “It Ain’t Me, Babe,” “Blind Willie McTell” and “Things Have Changed.” Of particular note, on “It Ain’t Me, Babe” both Dylan and Knopfler played guitar. Knopfler performed on Dylan’s 1979 gospel-inspired album Slow Train Coming and both co-produced and appeared on 1983’s Infidels. The two legends will perform at Mannheim, Germany’s SAP Arena tomorrow.
