Maybe shagging Mark Knopfler, but that's about it.

check the fuse, if it's blown, replace it with another of the same specs. If it blows again, start looking for someone you can borrow an amp from, because either a tube is shorting, or there are other major problems going on.

What he said. It could be worse than a tube failure, so you should probably look to borrow one for tonight.

I was talking about the one at the plug, that's the one that goes usually if you aren't getting any power at all, no indicator lights, etc. Sometimes a fuse can look good, and still be torched though. Try replacing it with the same value fuse if you can, just to rule it out. Like omarrodrigez said, you may want to line up something to borrow for tonight.

Most likely the fuse has gone - not the fuse in the plug, the surge protection fuse that lives in the holder under the amps power cable socket. You should be able to pop it out with a screwdriver and if you're lucky there'll be a spare fuse in the square section. If not, you need to purchase a 250volt T 1.6 amp fuse ...the T is for "time delay" aka slow blow.

It's possible a PCB has fritzed but the fuse is the most likely.

Yup, had the same problem once or twice.

Had it a lot more frequently when I unwittingly bought quick blow fuses instead of time delay

May sound stupid, I have no real experience with any nice equipment, but have you tried it in a different power socket? I've had my amp die out of nowhere just to find that the actual wall socket died.
