Festival of Contemporary Performing Arts at Worthy Farm, Pilton, Somerset, UK. 26 June 2011.
On Stage at Glastonbury
Summer returned with the warmest day of the year and Don McLean taking the main stage at Glastonbury for a one-hour set:
Medley – Well Alright, Peggy Sue Got Married
La La Love You
Love in my Heart
Have You Seen Me
Tulsa Time/Deep in the Heart of Texas
I Gotta Know
Don McLean Live at Glastonbury on the BBC
The Pyramid Stage crowd area was packed with approximately 100,000 Glastonbury fans joining Don singing American Pie, but they loved the whole set with Love in my Heart and Crying also getting a huge response.

Don final song, “Sea Man”
This picture from the BBC webcam at Glastonbury doesn’t really do today’s wet and cold weather full justice. The thermometer is unlikely to break 11 degrees C and there has already been 20mm of rain…
Let’s hope for a better June day in two weeks time when Don McLean headlines the daytime schedule on the Pyramid Stage at Glastonbury.
“I am looking forward to all my shows in June on my mini UK tour. Of special interest is the show at Hampton Court (I am fascinated by Henry VIII) and topped off by the Glastonbury Festival, which is an honor for me. The British public has been my great friend for 40 years.”
Don McLean will appear on the Pyramid Stage on Sunday 26th June and before that he completes a short tour around the UK and Ireland. This follows on from his full UK and European tour last year.
