Don McLean completed two great shows in Europe on July 25th and 27th. Official attendance figures were 10,000 for his show in Turnhout, Belgium and 5,000 in Trowbridge, England. Great feedback is being posted from fans:
“Little did I know that after attending your concert at the Albert Hall in 1972, that the next time I would see you live would be 36 years later at the Trowbridge Village Pump Festival. I have to say that your performance on Sunday exceeded all my expectations and must go down as one of the all time great perfromances at this festival , which I have attended for many years. Your voice is still amazing and coupled with a great song selection and and a terrific band, it made it a memeorable evening for myslef and many other people in the audience. My wife says she has never seen me look happier!”
“Thanks so much for your marvellous concert in Turnhout on July 25.
For me and my wife, this was a milestone in our life to see and hear you alive and kicking.”
“The concert in Tourhart yesterday was so good !!!!!! Your voice didn’t loose quality since 33 yrs and your spirit was overwhelming. We could see that you enjoyed it yourself, that made the concert so special. It was a great opportunity for me to show my son why I love your music.”
“Just to say thanks for coming to Turnhout. I always loved your music, and I never dreamt you would come to our small town. Your voice is still as strong as ever, I loved the concert,great atmosphere,I feel privaliged to have heard you.”
