Hello. My name is Isaac Shabtay, 32 years old from Ontario, Canada. I have set this blog up to document my journey following Mark Knopfler’s “Get Lucky” tour during the spring‐summer of 2010. This is in much the same way I did for Knopfler’s 2008 “Kill to Get Crimson” tour (see the “Links” section), except that this time, I will be following the entire tour—starting April 8 in Seattle, Washington, and ending July 31 in Gredos, Spain. Similarly to before, though, you are more than welcome to sit back, relax, read and comment. All comments, positive and negative, are welcome. You can also subscribe to the blog’s RSS feed (see links at the right‐hand side of the screen), so new posts become available through your favorite RSS reader. Have fun, Isaac

Getting Ready (Part II)

Well, I felt somewhat bad for not being able to post pictures from the second Vancouver & surroundings trip. A few hours before the Seattle show, I’m sitting at the lobby of the Moore Hotel with Jeroen. Grabbed the pictures from his camera. So there we go:

Bridal Veil falls, just a few kilometres east of Chilliwack:


The Blue Moose Cafe in Hope, BC. They serve great coffee and it’s an altogether pleasant place to hang out. A locals’ favourite:


On the way back, we stopped at Deep Cove, a small neighbourhood in North Vancouver:


I also took a picture with what I consider “my dream house”. Whenever I happen to be in Deep Cove, I go and take a look at that house:


The concert at the Moore Theatre is scheduled to begin 4 hours from now. Can’t wait.

  2. Hi,

    Google Translate helped me understand that you may be asking if there is a recording of the Seattle show. Sorry, I don't record shows. Thanks.

  3. There are audio recording in Seattle? THANKS

  4. Hi Isaac,

    since you are the first person we know who is going to the first concert, we are quite desperate to know how it was! :-)
    have you got any news for us already? set list, sound, ambiente.. :-)

    thanks a lot!!

  5. Why not write anything about the concert? Are you stupid?

  6. Hi,

    Anonymous #2: a blog post is coming.

    Anonymous #3: These are two different questions, really. (1) Because it ended 2 hours ago and I just got back to the place I'm staying. (2) Am I stupid or not? Well, the jury is still out on that one.

  7. Hi Isaac,
