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

A Note Regarding Setlists

Hi. Well, one of the most common questions I am asked after each show is what was the setlist like. Naturally, as Mark possesses a huge musical repertoire, information regarding the setlists is very much sought after.

During the last tour, I did not post a setlist in any of the postings (the setlist was included along with the last post in the blog), as I didn’t want to ruin it for people who haven’t seen the show yet. Still, it’s impossible to write about an MK show without disclosing anything about the setlist.

Therefore: setlists will not be posted here. If you would really like to know what the setlist was for a particular concert, send me a private email and I will respond.

Hope you understand,


  1. to upload photos of the show ? thanks for the blogs

  2. Well.. well?????!??!?! I am waiting with bated breath.

    Wish I were along to photograph the trip FOR you!

  3. Anonymous: sorry I did not take pictures of the Seattle show; you should be able to find photos from the concert over the Internet... I doubt I will take too many photos, if at all, as I know it distracts the band.

    Kami: now THAT's an idea!

  4. Welcome back! Couldn't find you at first....thanks for all the info, and I don't mind knowing what is being played, as I can not attend any of the concerts, so I may pm you privately...xo Marjorie Jane

  5. Very Nice blog for Get Lucky Tour! Thanks a lot!
