PUTS ON A DAMNED GOOD SHOW
Nobody is claiming he still has that gorgeous voice from the 70s. But he put on a hell of a show. Hearing him sing Vincent, American Pie, and And I Love You So was such a treat. The country and rock songs were unexpected and so much fun. He has a beautiful rapport with the audience and tells amazing stories about his career. Every single musician in his band is top notch. I will see him again if/when he returns.

Saw Don McLean last night and it was a great show. Yes his voice isn’t what it was in his early years but he makes up for it in his enthusiasm and great connection with his audience. He sings a great song then tells you a very interesting short story about hanging out with Johnny Cash and Roy Orbison in Nashville. He had very kind and heartfelt words about Elvis on more than one occasion. When he ended with America Pie he invited the Audience to sing it with him (his words) and at the end said you want to sing more and everyone sang the first verse again. Great ending and you could tell he really enjoys himself in that moment. While driving home it felt like you just spent 2 hours with an old friend!! Definitely going to see him again when he returns. The venue was a great cozy setting as well. First time there but not my last.

BYE BYE ME AMERICAN PIE
Had never seen Don McLean live..his band and his guitar playing were Great...but the vocal was really dissapointing..it made you want to sing along or turn your phones music on...I loved Firefall...the group is reconfigued...I missed Rick Roberts lead vocals..but the group played great music..superior guitar ...
