This at the Cambridge Corn Exchange was an evening with a difference. It felt for the audience like we were part of a Herculean effort to bring the ultimate phoenix up from the flames – the band they said could never reform – Dire Straits. Of course this is not that band, exactly, but it contains former Dire Straits touring member Chris White who tells the story elsewhere on eventswhatson.com of how he picked up a spare saxophone from his school music cupboard and never looked back, and by the age of 30 in 1985 was playing in some of the biggest gigs on the planet including Live Aid.
