Unauthorized Agents Offering Dire Straits/Mark Knopfler Shows


(VIP NEWS) — Unauthorized agents have been offering Dire Straits and Mark Knopfler shows to unsuspecting promoters worldwide.

A spokesman for Knopfler issued a warning to promoters following a flurry of recent cases in South America and stressed there are no current plans for any Dire Straits` shows.

"There are no plans whatsoever for Dire Straits shows, and any Mark Knopfler shows should be booked only through Brent Smith at William Morris for North America, and Andrew Zweck at Sensible Events for the rest of the world," said a statement issued on behalf of the singer.

Last year, con artists attempted to dupe promoters by posing as representatives of Aerosmith and Pearl Jam in a similar scam conducted by email.
