Iconic American singer, songwriter and performer Don McLean has recently wrapped up a successful tour of the United Kingdom, Scotland, Ireland, and Israel. Playing to numerous sold out venues – from the Palladium in London, to six nights at Vicar St. in Dublin – McLean performed his timeless American classics, along with new music from his latest album Botanical Gardens, to raves from enthusiastic audiences.

“My tour of England, Ireland, Scotland, and Wales has ended. I never enjoyed an experience more than this. Many thanks to the very kind reviewers and the enthusiastic audiences that made this tour the best of all,” said McLean. “I send my love & sincere thanks. We will be back again someday.”

McLean is already scheduled for the second leg of his European tour this fall, with the Hall of Fame songwriter scheduled for Essen, Germany on October 1, and then visiting Holland, Switzerland and all of Scandinavia through the end of the month.

With over 40 gold and platinum records worldwide, Don McLean’s prowess for writing timeless songs has once again been captured on Botanical Gardens, his newest album, released in March via BMG. McLean artfully weaves country, Americana, folk, and boot-stomping rock for an eclectic, yet American sound that he is known for. Botanical Gardens is McLean’s 19th studio album and first in 8 years, is arguably one of Don’s most reflective to date.

As McLean characterizes it, “The inspiration for the project started years ago when I would walk in the beautiful gardens in Sydney, Australia near the Opera House. I would dream young dreams and it was a comfort and an inspiration. I was always young inside, like we all are, and I felt it again there.” Further reflecting on the record, Don says, “the whole album really revolves around the title song. Later on I realized that the gardens are really a metaphorical heaven, and there’s a kind of death and rebirth.
