Mark Knopfler - Brothers In Arms - Live 2009

Mark Knopfler on his North American Tour from 2015, on October 17, 2015 had a concert at the Academy of Music in Philadelphia. By all reports, the show was sold out in about fifteen minutes.

Billed as “An Evening With Mark Knopfler” – the show didn’t have a opening act. The entire two hours that the show lasted it was packed with mostly songs from Knopfler solo career mixed with tasty songs from Dire Straits best era.


These mist covered mountains Are a home now for me But my home is the lowlands And always will be Someday you'll return to Your valleys and your farms And you'll no longer burn to be Brothers in arms

Through these fields of destruction Baptisms of fire I've witnessed your suffering As the battle raged higher And though they did hurt me so bad In the fear and alarm You did not desert me My brothers in arms

There's so many different worlds So many different suns And we have just one world But we live in different ones

Now the sun's gone to hell and The moon's riding high Let me bid you farewell Every man has to die But it's written in the starlight And every line in your palm We are fools to make war On our brothers in arms
