Welcome to my Kill to Get Crimson 2008 tour blog!

My name is Isaac, 30 years old from Waterloo, Ontario, Canada. I have set this blog up for the purpose of documenting the journey I am taking following Mark Knopfler’s Kill to Get Crimson tour in North America, in the summer of 2008.

The North American leg of the tour, as well as my journey, begins June 24th in Morrison, Colorado and ends on July 31st in Miami Beach, Florida.

Even though I intend to write on a daily basis, publishing the stories onto the server would be tricky. After all, we’re talking about vast distances which will be primarily crossed by driving, and there is no way for me to predict the availability of Internet connection throughout the way.

So… make yourself at home and feel free to drop a comment.

Less than Two Days Left…

Less than 48 hours left for my departure from Toronto to Denver at the morning of June 24.
Excitement grows exponentially as time passes. I have been waiting for this trip for months, and only now I’m starting to understand that I’m actually going to do it.

Everything is prepared. Printed all flight itineraries, car reservation confirmations, hotel reservations (for the first 3 nights, in which I will have no car)… My backpack will start getting stuffed as soon as the laundry is done.

I am still looking for places to stay along the way. If anybody can recommend a place to stay—all I need is a bed—why not speak up?

All the best,

Hey Isaac,
Glad you got this up and running. I am so excited for you, and looking forward to any reviews and pictures you post. I will see you in Salt Lake City and Los Angeles. (Already got your seat numbers from MK.com post.)
Have fun!

Hey Isaac! Nice to meet you, so to speak. :-)I hail from Lafayette, CO and am a huge music fanatic, especially Dylan. My husband, sister and I will be at Red Rocks for Knopfler in row 19 seats 31-32-33. If you need a bed to crash in after Knopfler plays the most beautiful venue on earth, Red Rocks Amphitheater, give me a email msg here: amelodylan@yahoo.com Or call or text my cell: 937-218-0616 I wish you safe traveling!

peace out,

Hello Isaac,
What an excellent idea! I have tickets for the last two shows of the tour, in Clearwater and Miami Beach, and it's going to be great to have blogs from two musicians and one fan to follow up until then. Good luck and stay safe; we need to start working on that end-of-tour party in MB!
