Sultans Of Swing: Touring The U.S., Mark Knopfler Proves The Boy Can Still Play

August was a big month for Mark Knopfler. The Dire Straits frontman turned 70 and also toured the U.S. for the first time in four years. Supporting ninth solo album Down The Road Wherever, Knopfler played two nights at the Beacon Theatre in NYC. MAGNET photographer Wes Orshoski was there for the first show, enjoying all the laughs and jokes and drinks and smokes.

Camden Joy: Beck, Cage The Elephant, Spoon And Sunflower Bean Rock Jersey

Beck

Generally, the only night running you do in Camden, N.J., is when you’re being chased by someone who probably isn’t pursuing you to compliment you on your new sneakers. But Beck and Cage The Elephant brought their “The Night Running Tour” to the BB&T Pavilion, right across the Delaware River from our hometown of Philly, and they also had with them Spoon and Sunflower Bean. This fab four delivered the perfect late-summer, outdoor rock show. MAGNET photographer Chris Sikich turned his camera on.
