Acclaimed singer-songwriter Don McLean has announced that he will play a Belfast show at the Waterfront on 7 June 2018.
Born in New Rochelle, NY, Don McLean is renowned for his multiple hits including American Pie (which was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame and named the fifth greatest song of the 20th Century by the NEA-RIAA), And I Love You So, Empty Chairs and Vincent.
Awards and accolades throughout his career have included being inaugurated into the National Academy of Popular Music Songwriters' Hall of Fame in 2004 and awarded the BBC Folk Music Lifetime Achievement Award in 2012.
In 2011 Don performed on the Pyramid Stage at the Glastonbury Festival and in 2014 he performed to 30,000 at the Stagecoach Festival, one of the premier country music events in the US. According to the Daily News, 'the audience went wild, screaming, jumping, dancing. Even after the song was over, the audience still lingered, basking in the afterglow of the performance'.
