Capital Region Chamber

Palace Performing Arts Center, Inc.

19 Clinton Avenue
Albany , NY 12207

The Palace Theatre is one very notable cornerstone in Albany's growing downtown entertainment destinations. A concert & theatrical entertainment facility in the heart of Albany, New York , it first opened its doors in October 1931.

Built during the Depression, the Palace was the largest theatre in a city already noted for a number of other opulent movie houses. Today, the Palace Theatre remains the sole survivor of this period of entertainment and continues to make history with a widely diverse offering of popular acts and cultural events.

Legendary musician and songwriter Mark Knopfler will celebrate the release of his new record, Tracker with a North American tour that includes a stop at Albany's Palace Theatre. Says Knopfler, 'Part of the fun is thinking what you might have a go at, for a new tour. For me, that's part of the joy of it, getting that little crew together again, and setting sail once again. It's a real adventure.' Knopfler has always viewed touring as the final part of the process running from songwriting through recording and ending up on the road performing old and new songs. He now writes more music while actually on the road. A multiple Grammy award winner as the lead vocalist and songwriter for Dire Straits, Knopfler has released seven solo albums as well as recording Neck And Neck with one of his guitar heroes, Chet Atkins and collaborated with Emmylou Harris on All The Roadrunning. He has created soundtracks for Local Hero and The Princess Bride and is currently working on a new film, Altamira. In addition to producing his own records Knopfler has also produced albums for Bob Dylan and Randy Newman amongst others. He was made an OBE in 1999 and was given the prestigious 'Lifetime Achievement Award' at the Ivor Novellos in 2012.
