THE bass guitar player of Dire Straits, John Illsley, will be playing classic hits Sultans of Swing and Money for Nothing during a concert at Swindon Art Centre tonight.

Illsley has made a remarkable musical journey since 1977, selling over 120 million albums and picking up a few Grammys on the way as well as an Ivor Novello award in 1988 for his outstanding contribution to British music.

The show will feature many well known songs from the Dire Straits catalogue, as well as songs from John’s latest album Long Shadows, which was released in May this year. John has five other solo albums to his credit.
