(Gibson) Bob Dylan and Mark Knopfler will team up for a European tour this fall. Knopfler's band for the tour will consist of Richard Bennett on guitar, Guy Fletcher on keyboards, Jim Cox on piano, John McCusker on violin and cittern, Mike McGoldrick on flute, whistles and pipes, Glenn Worf on bass and Ian Thomas on drums.

Knopfler has been recording his next album, but was happy to interrupt sessions to hit the road with Dylan. Knopfler and Dylan first worked together in 1979 on Dylan's Slow Train Coming album and Knopfler produced Infidels.

Knopfler said on his website: "I'm much looking forward to going out on the road with Bob in such a special year. Also, it was an honor to be asked to record one of Bob's songs on the forthcoming Amnesty International 50th anniversary album to mark his 70th birthday." more on this story
