Don McLean is one of the greatest singer-songwriters with smash hits like “American Pie”, “Vincent (Starry Starry Night)”, “Castles in the Air”, “And I Love You So”, “Crossroads”, “The Grave” and many more. Vocal renditions of Roy Orbison’s “Crying”, “Mountains of Mourne” and “Since I Don’t Have You” have been noted as the greatest versions of these songs.

Since first hitting the charts in 1971, Don has amassed over 40 gold and platinum records world-wide and, in 2004, was inducted into the Songwriters’ Hall of Fame. His songs have been recorded by artists from every musical genre, most notably Madonna‘s No. 1 recording of “American Pie” in 2000 and George Michael’s version of “The Grave” in 2003, sung in protest at the Iraq War. Don McLean is co-writer of Drake’s 2011 release, “Doing it Wrong“.

In 2007, Don McLean shared his life story in Alan Howard’s biography, The Don McLean Story: Killing Us Softly With His Songs.

Don continues to tour North America and the rest of the world — including UK/Europe, Australia and two UK and Europe tours in one year in 2015. In June 2011, he performed for an audience of 100,000 at the Glastonbury Festival of Contemporary Performing Arts.

Don McLean performs Friday, November 22 at 8 p.m. at The Newton Theatre, 234 Spring Street in Newton. Tickets start at $54 and are available for purchase at The Newton Theatre box office, online at www.TheNewtonTheatre.com, or by calling 973-940-NEWT.
