Don McLean announces 2022 American Pie 50th Anniversary European tour

Dates include Manchester, Glasgow, London, Dublin and more

Don McLean will embark on a 35 date European tour in 2022 in support of American Pie’s 50th anniversary. The American Pie 50th Anniversary European Tour kicks off September 11th in Cardiff with stops in Birmingham, Manchester, Glasglow, Liverpool, London, Dublin, Holland, Amsterdam, Stockholm, and more before wrapping November 13th in Linz, Austria.

The eight-and-a-half-minute ballad “American Pie” has been making history since its release in 1971. Alongside songs by other icons such as Bing Crosby, Judy Garland, Woody Guthrie, and Aretha Franklin, McLean’s composition was also voted “Song of the 20th Century.” Handwritten lyrics to the song were auctioned off for more than $1.2 million in 2015, and the composition was added to the Library Of Congress National Recording Registry two years later.

Last year, the legendary singer/songwriter teamed with award-winning a capella group Home Free for a remake of the song and subsequently released a music video that won three Telly Awards in 2021.

McLean was awarded a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame last month at 6314 Hollywood Boulevard in front of The Pie Hole restaurant at the corner of Hollywood and Vine.
