After performing to an audience of two billion people at the closing of the Sydney Olympics in 2000 Phil Emmanuel has toured Asia, Europe and the US several times with rave reviews.

Phil has now emerged from his self-imposed semi-retirement of recent years and has had huge success touring nationally with the Brothers in Arms tour 2010 (Phil playing the music of Dire Straits Mark Knopfler) and the Emmanuel Brothers 50 Anniversary Tour 2010/2011 with brother Tommy, all shows on both tours being sold out. Phil has combined his deep respect of the Shadows with the incredible popularity and guitar virtuosity of the Dire Straits into one show played as only Phil can.

The show is split into two parts: the first mainly medleys of the most popular Shadows songs such as Fingle Bunt, Atlantis, Apache, Wonderful Land… the list goes on.

The second, the most popular music of the Dire Straits with all the classics such as Sultans of Swing, Lady Writer, Down to the Waterline, Money for Nothing, Romeo and Juliet to name a few. Catch this very special show at the Mullumbimby Bowlo tonight.
