Don McLean To Bring American Pie 50th Anniversary Tour To Australia

in News

Don McLean 50th Anniversary American Pie tour will come to Australia in 2023 for a run of 19 dates.

The song ‘American Pie’, released in 1971, told the story of the history of rock and roll to the time. The lyric “the day the music died” refers to the 1959 plane crash which killed rock and roll legends Buddy Holly, The Big Bopper and Ritchie Valens. The song also references The Beatles, The Stones and Dylan as it flows down the timeline of the 60s.

The ‘American Pie’ album was released on 24 October, 1971. It was a number one album in both Australia and the USA.

The other major hit from the album was ‘Vincent’, a song about Vincent Van Gogh.

“I am thrilled to be getting back to Australia with my band,” says Don McLean. “2022 marks the 50th anniversary from when American Pie landed at the No. 1 spot on the Billboard chart, and we will be celebrating. We’ll be performing songs from the American Pie album plus many of the other hits that fans will be expecting to hear.”
