  1. Well when an officiando declares it “up in my top 10” then it must be one of the best Don McLean nights ever!! For me it probably was THE BEST – fanstastic seats, great sound, Don and Band looked like they were enjoying to too. The songs were awesome – including all the greats. My only little gripe – wouldnt it be great to have a night when we got to hear all our favourites of the years that there aren’t time for in a normal show. Birthday Song, On the Amazon, ‘Till Tomorrow, If we Try, – I’m sure there are others who could have suggestions. A good cozy venue with a core of real fans….mmm that would be a night to remember!

  2. Thank-You so very much Don for giving me such a wonderful evening,a truly ‘time stopping’concert. You filled it from edge to edge with music and memories.You have been a constant thread running throughout my life since I first heard you when I was nineteen,now I am sixty and still carry you in my heart.Just wish I could get to every concert.A great guy, fantastic voice and still the gorgeous man I first adored all those years ago.xx.

  3. What a fantastic venue – and what a fantastic show. The accoustics were fantastic – it was like having Don sitting deside me. I never once felt that the band was too loud (my usual gripe!) so ‘thank you’ to all concerned.
    It was wonderful to have Don sing with just his guitar as in the ‘old days’ when we were young! I adored the ‘blues’ set – and Don’s voice was a rich and moving as ever.

    Only possible complaint was that it wasn’t long enough – quite a few numbers less than the Royal Albert Hall – but I guess that it will never be long enough for Don’s fans.

    Thank you for an ‘old time’ show, Don – it was pure magic.

    What a lovely idea, Lesley – I’d be first in line.

  4. Wow and Wow the sound was finally right at a venue I haven’t enjoyed that much in the past apart from the fact it was Don my idol .Don thanked his sound guys too tonight.
    I had both of my older sisters who have put up with their “ little sister” mad on DM from 1972,both who have been with me as the responsible adult in the past.
    I checked with the security guard about going to the front with my red rose he said maybe the fans might rush the stage so I would need to be careful ! As we all get older I told him I thought it was unlikely but I told him I’d take care , he kindly gave me the thumbs up it was safe to go to the stage another on high feeling after giving Don my rose. Where I get the nerve from I don’t know it comes from an overwhelming desire to say thanks to the greatest singer in my opinion.
    A fabulous performance with two encores including Vincent Solo WOW! Perfect finish .
    It’s so great to meet with like minded fans to share our concert memories who likes what and generally agree that we never going to be completely satisfied unless we have our own personal concert with our own choice of songs and unless one of us wins the lottery that’s not going to happen . I’ll let you know if I do and you’d all be welcome as long as no one moans!
