of his huge hit single and remarkable, enduring music career
 

2021 marks the 50th Anniversary of Don McLean’s much loved American Pie album and in celebration, today Don announces his European tour which rolls into the UK Sept 22.

The American Troubadour has had Top 20 singles worldwide with American Pie, Vincent, Cryin, And I Love You So, Wonderful Baby, Since I Don’t Have you, It’s Just The Sun & If We Try . Madonna, Drake and Garth Brooks are amongst many artists who have also recorded Don’s songs.

ABOUT AMERICAN PIE

In 1971, Don McLean released American Pie as a double-A single and it charted within a month.  Interest from the media and public sent the single to #1 in the U.S. and Don to international stardom.  Despite decades of attempted interpretations, Don has always remained enigmatic as to the songs meaning & the mystery remains to this day!  

Now, 50 years later, American Pie resides in the Library of Congress National Recording Registry, joining less than 500 works including Somewhere Over the Rainbow. American Pie was named by the Recording Industry of America (RIAA) a top 5 song of the 20th Century. In 2002, the song was inducted into the GRAMMY® Hall of Fame. In 2015, McLean’s manuscript of the lyrics to American Pie were auctioned by Christies, selling for just over $1.2 Million. McLean has performed the song for numerous dignities including President Clinton at the Lincoln Memorial Gala in Washington D.C.

A New York native, Don McLean is one of the most revered and respected songwriters in American history. After paying his dues in the New York club scene in the late ‘60s, he went on to score mega-hits like Vincent (Starry, Starry Night), Castles in the Air, and many more. His song And I Love You So was the theme for Prince Harry and Megan Markle’s wedding. American Pie appears in the Avengers’ Black Widow and the upcoming Tom Hanks movie Finch. Next up for Mclean is a children’s book expected to be released in 2022.
