Renowned performer Don McLean is set to headline at the LVH – Las Vegas Hotel & Casino (formerly Las Vegas Hilton) on July 3 in the LVH Theater.
Don McLean’s star status is always attributed to his remarkable song, “American Pie” which, in 2000, once again topped the charts worldwide, this time recorded by Madonna. Back in 1972, “Vincent (Starry, Starry Night),” taken from the “American Pie” album gave Don McLean a second number one hit single and another landmark entry in the history of popular music. Some people are amazed when they read how successful “American Pie Man,” Don McLean has been. Far from fading away (like some of his 1970s singer-songwriter contemporaries), Don has remained very much in the upper echelons of popular music. Between 1971 and 2000, Don McLean released over 20 albums and scored major chart successes with “Everyday” (1973), “Mountains of Mourne” (1974), “Crying” (1980), “Since I Don’t Have You” (1981), “You Can’t Blame the Train” (1987), and again with “American Pie” in the UK in 1991.
“Don McLean is an incredible talent and we’re delighted to have him perform at the LVH,” said Rick White, Vice President of Brand Marketing & Entertainment. “Don continues the LVH’s tradition of bringing great entertainment to the next level.”
In 2004, Don was inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame. In 2005, HELLO! Magazine featured Don in a stunning 5-page spread, which included photographs taken at the McLean residence in Maine and offered an exclusive interview in which Don talks about Madonna, George Michael, American Pie, and his 2007 biography, “The Don McLean Story: Killing Us Softly With His Words,” by Alan Howard.
