Excellent performance by Don McLean and band. The show starts with several covers but soon hits stride as we hear his own masterpieces one after after another. Audience was very well behaved with absolutelu no chatter and the hoots and shouts confined to the applause segments which have been balanced. The sing-along, requested and instructed by Don, added to the sound. Enjoy.
Faults: Few and minimal but see note re t01.
