Don McLean, Paramount Theater, 50th Anniversary of American Pie tour, last night!

Great show. His voice actually improved as the show went on, culminating in a spotless rendition of Roy Orbison's "Crying" (which McLean took to the global charts in 1981), followed by the inevitable "American Pie." In between he played a broad selection of originals and covers, telling stories in between, with a crack band of veteran session players. Other highlights included "Castles in the Sand," "Vincent," "And I Love You So," a medley of "Tulsa Time/Deep in the Heart of Texas" and a stately version of "El Paso" (Marty Robbins cover).

Cross another one off my bucket list.

Not perfect. Never claimed to be.

When Don McLean played the Moseley Festival three years ago, the organisers booked variety performer Don Maclean to come on ahead of him and pretend that it was actually him that was performing. Then the American Don came on stage and for a while both Dons shared the stage. It was utterly inspired.
