As part of the 2010 Get Lucky Tour, Mark will be performing at the Royal Albert Hall in London from the 30th of May to the 4th of June. A special fans’ Best Seats Presale has been arranged for all six RAH shows. This presale commences at 12 noon GMT on June 26th. Be sure to sign into your account just before the start of the sale as tickets will be assigned on a first come, first served basis.
The remaining dates for the 2010 tour will be ‘rolled out’ starting in September.
IMPORTANT UPDATE – 25/06
As we mentioned yesterday, we are having a Best Seats Presale on Friday, June 26, for six Royal Albert Hall dates. The sale will be starting at noon BST, not GMT as previously stated. Also, due to high demand, we’ve increased the ticket-per-order limit. You will now be able to purchase four (4) tickets per order.COMMENT

We have been advised that the £100 (Standing) tickets will include a wine reception, not a champagne reception as was previously reported. We apologize for the misunderstanding.

As we announced on MarkKnopfler.com, Mark will be performing a special charity concert in benefit of The Prince’s Trust on September 9, 2009. Mark will be appearing at The Hurlingham Club in London with a band of five musicians in an intimate setting and will perform songs from throughout his career. We had also mentioned that there would be tickets available for our members to purchase and that time has come.

* Pre-concert Reception Tickets (Standing) – These tickets include admission to the champagne reception, followed by a standing view in the main hall for the concert.
