Verona 2006 [no label, 2CD]

Live at the Arena di Verona, Verona, Italy; June 3, 2006. Excellent FM broadcast.

Thanks to scarecrowjo who recorded and shared this show at Dime in 2006.

Note posted at

The first soundboard recording from the All The Roadrunning tour 2006, recorded at the beautiful arena of Verona. A large part of this show is also available on DVD: Verona 2006. The show was broadcast in two parts (21st and 28th August 2006) on German NDR radio. Initially, the Hamburg 2006 show would be broadcast, but due to technical problems, this recording failed and the radio station got permission to record and broadcast the Verona concert instead. So here it is; great quality, very good versions.

Thanks also to Nico for the artwork; and to Guy Fletcher for the Verona arena shot.

  3. Great music and a great band, with the show featuring a number of excellent but not-well-known Knopfler songs from his strong solo collection. The studio album linked above “All the Roadrunning” is a fine collaboration but a better sampling of the duo’s live performance of the material is “Real Live Roadrunning,” which in the version I have came with both a CD of live music and an extremely well recorded DVD of the live show and band interactions. Highly recommended.

  4. The Verona Arena–I saw Neil Young and Crazy Horse there in 1997. Nothin’ like seeing live rock n’ roll in a place built by the Roman Empire.

  5. Correction: I saw NY&CH there in 1987 (not that anybody cares).

  6. Great gift.

  7. the pair did release real live roadrunning recorded in la ca in june 06 released nov that year. the cd is 75mins and 14 songs. the dvd counterpart has 3 more songs and is 91mins. theres some more stuff on the dvd filling it out tho.. about 11mins.
    there is nearly no difference between the studio and live versions of the songs altho there is some its very subtle. the best thing about these is that they share the stage for what would be their own material.

    interestingly.. all the roadrunning the studio version by dire straits with emmylou guesting first appears on private investigations released in nov 05. then it was rerecorded without the other members of dire straits it seems for this album titled after the song itself. song is exactly the same length.

  8. While I am always grateful for the music offered here, I cannot think of any artist whose talent faded more quickly than Mark Knopfler. Dire Straits were such a great band but, with the exception of some of his film scores, Knopfler’s post DS work has been a colossal bore.

  9. Thanks for sharing. I tried to get this from Dime but there were no seeders, so I’m very appreciative you are still offering it. Love the official CD so I’m looking forward to this show from Verona.

    Just saw Mark Knophler in Long Beach, CA on the Privateering tour and he was amazing!

  10. What a great pair they are. Emmylou really adds so much to every collaboration that she gets involved with. Mark Knopfler has done what any great artist does….move on….and don’t repeat the same formula over and over throughout your career. For current guitarists I rank him with Jeff Beck as far that goes.
