It was an extraordinary concert in a spectacular venue. And I was really looking forward to it. Too bad they had an amateur at the soundboard. The mixing destroyed the subtly of Knopfler's playing by over-emphasizing some frequencies, often losing musicians like Richard Bennett and Glen Worf in distortion, digital glare and frequency imbalance. This was especially disturbing on his, newer and more subtly-played songs. Red Rocks needs to invest in better help, or Mark should. That and the annoying warm-up singer with her patronizing attitude toward the audience - "You're sooo cute..." (Gimmeafrigginbreak!) - compromised what should have been a spectaculat concert.
