Don McLean is hitting the road to celebrate the 50th anniversary of some of his biggest hits.

The artist has been on the road since 2022 celebrating the anniversary of his iconic tune “American Pie,” and now he’s announced some new dates, which will also celebrate the 50th anniversary of “Vincent,” often referred to as “Starry Starry Night.”

The second single off the American Pie album, “Vincent” was inspired by the life of painter Vincent Van Gough and his 1889 painting “The Starry Night.” The song was a hit in the U.K., landing at #1 on the singles chart. In the U.S. it peaked at #12.
