Dire Straits Booking Agency Profile

Book Dire Straits for your next corporate event, function, or private party.
Dire Straits were a British rock band, formed by Mark Knopfler, David Knopfler, John Illsley, and Pick Withers. Although the band was formed in an era when punk rock was at the forefront, Dire Straits played a more bluesy style, albeit with a stripped-down sound that appealed to audiences weary of the overproduced stadium rock of the 1970s. Dire Straits soon became hugely successful, with their first album going multi-platinum globally. The band's best-known songs include Sultans of Swing, Money for Nothing, Brothers in Arms, Walk of Life, So Far Away, Romeo and Juliet, and Tunnel of Love. Dire Straits and Mark Knopfler have sold in excess of 120 million albums to date..

Frequently Asked Questions about booking Dire Straits to perform.

Many performers, actors, speakers and other talent like Dire Straits, with postponed or cancelled events due to COVID-19 are now, in certain cases, considering virtual appearances via live streaming. They perhaps may accept lower fees too. If you are seriously interested in booking Dire Straits or other talent shown on our site, we will research their desire and the specific fee for your live-streaming event or project request.
Dire Straits's current work schedule and location in relation to your event's type, date, budget, and locality will play a primary factor in the acceptance of booking Dire Straits for your party. As long as your funding is commensurate with the price range to book Dire Straits, CTI will propose your event to the official agency representing Dire Straits. After we consult with them, we can circle back with you to provide a personal and accurate quote that includes: final costs, availability, and actual interest in being hired for your specific event or party.
CTI can give you the accurate Dire Straits booking price once we submit your event details to their camp. "How much does it cost to book Dire Straits for an event?" is a frequent question we get, but the final Dire Straits booking price is contingent on many variables and the booking fee we may show is based on a range derived from our past experience with what will Dire Straits charge for an event. One example fee to book Dire Straits is in the starting range of $150,000-$299,000. Also, their speaking fee might be different than the fee shown for the cost to perform or to just appear. Popularity, career stage, along with current demand will cause fluctuations in their speaking price too. The final booking price may be more than what is shown, but you should at least have a budget within that range for them to consider an appearance, performance or speaking engagement.
CTI negotiates on behalf of professional event planners and talent buyers for paid appearances! We cannot give out direct contact information of the Dire Straits agent or help distribute fan mail, personal messages, gifts, requests for free appearances, or donations of time. The Dire Straits manager and agent will only work with us if we present them with funded offers for their client to work your event.
There is low probability to book Dire Straits for a party with anything substantially less than the published booking cost price range. We will negotiate with the Dire Straits agent on your behalf, but if your funding is not in place then it will more difficult to book Dire Straits, because they get many offers to work events that are at or above asking price. It is also important to consider the travel costs when researching the Dire Straits booking fee, as additional expenses like this, as well as an entourage of staff and equipment, are not necessarily built-in to the booking fee range shown. If your budget does not factor that in, then there is no benefit for them to want to be hired. We do not personally speak for Dire Straits, but in our experience in booking talent for over 25 years, this is generally the outcome of inadequate funding.
