Come Together Album Tour: Dire Straits Making Movies

No longer available

Kiri Te Kanawa Theatre, Aotea Centre


The second album of Come Together 2023

Making Movies is Dire Straits third studio album. Released in 1980, the album includes singles Tunnel of Love, Romeo and Juliet, Skateaway & more. It is regarded as one of Dire Straits best albums and is a favourite with kiwi audiences.

Making Movies is a guitarists dream and challenge, and is a favourite of the bands.

They will perform this great album live, in its entirety – back to back, track by track along with a bonus set of classics and deep cuts.

‘Making Movies is the record on which Mark Knopfler comes out from behind his influences and Dire Straits come out from behind Mark Knopfler. The combination of the star's lyrical script, his intense vocal performances and the band's cutting-edge rock & roll soundtrack is breathtaking.’ Rolling Stone
