Tributes paid to great performers
A live performance of one of the world’s greatest rock bands, Dire Straits, is reproduced at Lincoln’s New Theatre Royal on Saturday, with an appearance by tribute band Money For Nothing.
The act formed in 2000 with the aim of recreating the musicality and energy of Dire Straits’ live shows.
Fronting the band is guitarist and Mark Knopfler sound-alike Aled Williams, backed by a host of experienced musicians.
Aled and the entire band have studied Dire Straits in great depth to ensure their tribute is as close as possible to the real thing.
It features all Dire Straits’ hits, from their first single, Sultans of Swing, to Brothers In Arms, Walk Of Life and their last single, The Bug, as well as Money For Nothing.
The band also includes versions from On The Night and Live @ The BBC.
Money For Nothing have performed all over the world, at all types of venues and events, from music festivals to theatres, including the headline slot on the main night of Europe’s Biggest Tribute Festival in 2010.
Celebrating its 17th year, the Greatest Hits Of Motown — How Sweet It Is comes to the New Theatre Royal on Friday.
The entirely live show features singing, slick choreography and a live band for an all-round Motown experience.
They will perform a host of Motown classics from the likes of Lionel Richie, The Temptations, Stevie Wonder, Edwin Starr, Smokey Robinson and The Jackson Five.
