Don McLean is set to embark on his 2022 “American Pie” 50th Anniversary Tour, with additional dates announced in cities throughout the United States and Canada.

Celebrating the 50th anniversary of one of the most iconic songs and albums ever, McLean will entertain fans across the continent throughout nearly 30 cities from Honolulu to Toronto.

“After spending the past 18 months at home, I am thrilled to be getting back on the road with my band,” said McLean. “2022 marks the 50th anniversary from when American Pie landed at the #1 spot on the Billboard chart and we will be celebrating on tour all year long.”

“We will be performing all the songs from the American Pie album plus many of the other hits that fans will be expecting to hear,” added the Grammy award honoree, Songwriters Hall of Fame member and BBC Lifetime Achievement Award recipient.

Besides “American Pie,” the 76-year-old composer will play hits such as “Vincent (Starry Starry Night),” “Castles in the Air,” “And I Love You So,” and “Cryin’,” along with new songs on the upcoming tour.

The eight-and-a-half-minute ballad, released in 1971, was voted Song of the 20th Century.

After the North American leg of the world tour, McLean’s European dates begin on September 11, 2022, in Cardiff, U.K.
