Mark Knopfler fans worldwide can rejoice: the ex-Dire Straits leader has added an extensive round of North American dates to the already-announced European leg of his 2015 tour.

The shows come in support of Knopfler's upcoming eighth solo LP, 'Tracker,' due March 17 in the U.S. Preceded by the album's first single, 'Beryl,' the new set finds him in what appears to be a reflective mood; as he explained, the title was inspired by his efforts to "find my way over the decades ... Out of me tracking time -- looking at people, places and things from my past, and out of the process of tracking as in recording tracks in the studio."

Knopfler, who will turn 66 this year, seems energized by the prospect of all this time on the road. "Part of the fun is thinking what you might have a go at, for a new tour," he explained in a press release. "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."

Check out the complete list of dates below. 'Tracker' is available for pre-order now.
