Why See Don McLean?
A Long, Long Time Ago
Singer songwriter Don McLean has more than his fair share of great songs to his name, but one stands head and shoulder above the others. Released in 1971, 'American Pie' remains one of the great tracks in popular music history, an epic rumination on the 1950s and 60s, that weaved together biographical details from the singer's childhood and references to the plane crash that killed Buddy Holly and Richie Valens - 'the day the music died'.
Catch Don playing American Pie, plus the likes of 'Vincent (Starry Starry Night)' and 'Crying' when he comes to your area.

Yes, it really is that good. A show about young rebels grabbing and shaping the future of an unformed country, 'Hamilton' is making its own resonant history by changing the language of musicals.

Purists of the original classic will be scandalized, but don't let that stop you from seeing this effervescent musical, which is filled with the verve and buoyancy of 1965 London
