The Dire Straits Experience, with Dire Straits band member Chris White in its ranks, is a phenomenal response to the growing demand for live performances of Dire Straits music. It was in 1995 that Dire Straits announced they would stop performing. For their huge loyal fan base, this seemed like the end of the world. But thanks to these same passionate fans, the music by this extremely popular rock band is more alive than ever before.

Please note this concert has both random seating as well as (pitch) standing.

Chris White, former Dire Straits band member, and six world-class musicians manage to revive the unparalleled musical standard of the original repertoire. They bring to life hits like Sultans of Swing, Money for Nothing and Private Investigations in an absolutely authentic way. So authentic in fact, that Chris White has stated that band member Terence Reis is the only one capable of matching the vocal and instrumental qualities of Dire Straits frontman Mark Knopfler. Just to prove that the standard is very high indeed.

The fact that this formation is a bundle of extraordinarily strong musical talent goes to show in their collaborations with star artists like Paul McCartney, Eric Clapton, David Bowie, Mick Jagger, Tina Turner and Mike Oldfield. 

Rootstime: "... an evening of music making with the precision of Swiss clockwork, tangible joy, intensity and virtuosity. The Dire Straits Experience is solid as a rock."

Cultuurselect about Terence Reis: "From the first note leaving his lips, from the first stroke of his fingers on the guitar strings, you know he is doing the impossible. Terence Reis completely brings back Dire Straits."


The Dire Straits Experience was originally planned to perform in our main hall on December 11th. Due to the measures surrounding the coronavirus outbreak, this concert has been rescheduled to Friday 12 November. Ticket holders have been notified personally and given further information.
