Don McLean touched down in the UK this morning and I was pleased to meet up with him at his London hotel for a chat about the tour and his emerging plans for the next few months, which already include a new songbook and the upcoming shows in the Far East and Australia. Talking of which, we took a journey to “Australia House” on the Strand to deal with some paperwork ahead of that tour. Unfortunately, no one had realised that today is a public holiday in Australia and even in London that means a day off. I wouldn’t say Don was overly pleased about this development…
Anyhow Don is in great shape and voice and looking forward to his month long journey around Britain and Ireland. You will be able to catch him on the BBC 1 television breakfast show tomorrow morning at around 8.45am and the TV advert for “Legendary Don McLean” should be appearing on our screens this week.
I hope everyone who reads the website and who can attend one or more of the concerts has a fantastic time. Personal circumstances will limit the number of shows I get to see this time around so, like other fans, I hope to read all about them here – all reviews, however short or long, are welcome and will be read by Don and the band as the tour progresses.
All the best
