Elles Bailey to support Don McLean on his Autumn tour

Don McLean has announced his 50th Anniversary ‘American Pie Tour’: a 17-date tour, starting in Cardiff on 11th September and playing throughout the country until 4th October, ending at the London Palladium. Support will come from Elles Bailey.

Elles Bailey has seen a swift rise in popularity and critical acclaim over the last year, with her music topping folk charts and winning multiple awards with her album ‘Shining In The Half Light’. Bailey is thrilled to be touring with Don McClean. Bailey says of the opportunity: “2022 has already been filled with musical highs and ‘Look Mum!’ moments but being asked to be a part of this iconic tour is quite simply the cherry on the cake! I can’t wait to take the band across the UK once more and share the stage with Don McLean: an artist I have admired my whole life.”

Don McLean’s album ‘American Pie’ was first released half a century ago, in 1971. His best-known album includes the 8½-minute title track ‘American Pie’, a homage to the death of Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens and The Big Bopper in an air crash, which was voted Number 5 in a poll of the “365 Songs of the Century” by RIAA. The album also includes ‘Vincent’ (often known as ‘Starry, Starry Night’), a tribute to the life, work and death of painter Vincent Van Gogh.
