Second time lucky for Dire Straits tribute at Babbacombe Theatre

Torbay Weekly

The 'best Dire Straits tribute in Europe' are in Torquay for one night only next week.

Money for Nothing's appearance at the Babbacombe Theatre on Thursday, January 27, comes after the show had to be postponed the day before its November scheduled date, because a band member was taken poorly.

Formed in 2000 as a tribute to one of the world’s premier rock bands – Dire Straits, Money For Nothing have an abundance of energy as well as excelling in musicality.

This is a 'must see' show for any rock enthusiast or Dire Straits fan.

Fronting the band is Howie G, who you may recognise from his years with The Classic Rock Show.

Behind him, the line-up features top-class and experienced musicians that make this band a worthy tribute to Dire Straits.

Howie and all the band have studied Dire Straits in great depth to re-create their tribute to be as close as possible to the real thing and a respectful tribute to their idol and guitar legend.

Featuring all the hits from their first single ‘Sultans of Swing’ to ‘Brothers in Arms ‘, ‘Walk of Life’ and their last single released in 1992 ‘The Bug’ – also the legendary ‘Money For Nothing’ which was the first video played on MTV.

The Money For Nothing stage show has been performed all over Britain and the world, at all types of venues and events - from music festivals, theatres, nightclubs, and venues.

In 2010, they headlined the main night on Europe’s Biggest Tribute Festival.

The band have also had the pleasure of performing as show opener for the legendary Roy Wood on part of his Theatre Tour.
