Share

Don McLean has announced a tour of the U.K. and Europe in celebration of the 50th anniversary of his second album American Pie.

The 35-date tour will kick off on September 11, 2022 at St David’s in Cardiff. The trek will conclude on November 13, 2022 at Posthof in Linz, Austria.

Tickets are on sale and are available online or from the Regent Theatre’s website.

American Pie was released on October 24, 1971 by United Artists Records. The album reached No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart and contained the chart-topping singles “American Pie” and “Vincent.”

The title song, “American Pie,” has been described as “one of the most successful and debated songs of the 20th century.” The single ruled the Billboard 100 chart for four weeks in 1972 starting January 15.

In 2017, McLean’s original recording of the song was selected for preservation in the National Recording Registry by the Library of Congress as being “culturally, historically, or artistically significant.”

Last month, McLean received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame; he was introduced at the ceremony by his pal, “Weird Al” Yankovic.
