Get ready for an evening filled with timeless music as American folk legend Don McLean brings “A Night of Hits & Stories” to the Wachholz College Center in Kalispell on Sept. 4.

The show is part of McLean’s 2024 Starry Starry Night Tour.

Renowned for his poetic lyrics and soul-stirring melodies, Don McLean has left an indelible mark on the music industry with iconic hits such as “American Pie,” “Vincent (Starry, Starry Night),” and “And I Love You So,” over his decades-long career.

McLean 's debut album, "Tapestry," marked his emergence as an underground sensation, earning praise and commercial success. "American Pie," released in 1971, catapulted him to international stardom making history as the longest song to top the charts. 

His influence transcended generations, with artists like Madonna and George Michael paying homage to his work through covers and interpretations. His enduring legacy was further cemented with inductions into the Grammy Hall of Fame and the Library of Congress National Recording Registry. 

The concert is scheduled to start at 7:30 p.m.
