Mark Knopfler and Bob Dylan Share "Summer Days"

Dylan and Knopfler in 2011

Dire Straits frontman Mark Knopfler sat in with Bob Dylan at San Diego, CA’s Valley View Casino Center last night. The guitarist emerged partway through Dylan’s set for a take on the Love and Theft song “Summer Days.”

Knopfler is currently on the road as Dylan’s support act, though last night marks the first time the musicians have collaborated onstage this fall. The two musicians have a long history together: Knopfler appears on Dylan’s 1979 album Slow Train Coming and his 1983 release Infidels. They toured Europe together last year and collaborated onstage with increased frequency. Their current tour pulls into Los Angeles, CA’s Hollywood Bowl on Friday.

That song is not “Summer Days”, but I guess you use to care, but things have changed. I know, people are crazy and times are strange. But you’re locked in tight, and out of range.

That song is from 2011, not last night. Try to keep up.

I’m hazarding a guess here, but I’m pretty sure the video is merely meant to show the two men playing together, not a video of last night’s performance. Nowhere in the article does it say that it is a clip of the actual performance, nor does it actually mention the video in any way. I absolutely love the “critics” who have absolutely nothing better to do than proofread and edit every article on the site…especially the one’s whose inane criticisms and half-assed opinions are riddled with far more egregious errors than I have ever encountered on this site. Ah well…the beauty of the Internet is that we’re apparently supposed to believe that just because everyone has a voice they think that whatever they say actually matters. Keep up the good work Editors! Still the best jam-news, Warts & All :-)
