Knopfler, who was always the least fashionable of rock stars, is only interested in producing the kind of music he wants to make. In this respect he is reflected in the character in “Skydiver” who sings ‘I don’t give a damn about a thing’. In an era dominated by manufactured music this is a refreshing approach, and has culminated in one of Knopfler’s best solo albums.
Bruce took us through a short and sweet set of favourites, mostly from Alive III and Revenge. (If you’re a KISS fan, you’ll know that this album is over 20 years old now – it was released in 1993 and went gold in 1994.)
High energy, full volume larrikinism is on offer… Seth Sentry plays again tonight in Adelaide at The Gov. Tickets may still be available but hurry, the show is likely to sell out.
This is traditional clowning in a contemporary setting at its absolute best.
Anyone who has ever doubted the divine Ms M’s talent or ability to knock an audience’s socks off need only attend Tuesday night’s Kiss Me Once concert.

With excellent crowd numbers, some very pleasant weather conditions and an outstanding and diverse line-up that delivered a host of excellent performances, this may very well have been the best WOMADelaide in the event’s history.
Despite the unnecessary annoyance, the food service was efficient, the meals were remarkable and the atmosphere and setting were perfection.
The good times continued into Day 3 of WOMADelaide, with a diverse program of inspiring and energetic acts, including a few surprises.
Day two of WOMADelaide confirmed the inkling provided by day one, that this was going to be one of the best line-ups the Festival has ever seen.
