"Amazing soundboard recording! Taken from the bootleg "Secrets in the closet". This is the real San Antonio, 16th August 1985, it's not another Houston. At the beginning of Walk of life, it is Mark Knopfler himself who is revealing the mystery: "This is where San Antonio is doing the walk, alright." And, at the end of Brothers in arms Mark says: "Thank you San Antonio, thank you!". Amazing! Great sound, complete show!"

Part 1 Part 2


  1. Thanks for this and other from the era that I'll also enjoy. Any of the 1980s NEC Birmingham shows out there anywhere? All the best.

  2. Live at the NEC 1982, 17.12.82, National Exhibition Centre, Birmingham, UK maybe?

  3. Fantastic. This show approximates the concert I was at a month earlier in Philadelphia at the Mann Music Centre. What a treat to hear Wild West End and the revamped version of One World, two highlights that I recall from the Philly show.
