1.0 star rating Steve Chamberlain from Cardiff, Wales.


Saw him last night in Cardiff, Wales and was so disappointed. His singing was flat for the most of the performance and unfortunately many people left. It’s such a shame and it’s sad because of the legend that he once. I sing and play his songs on guitar and love them but if ever there was a time to stop then it’s definitely now. His band were brilliant though. Goodness knows what they think of it. As much as I respect him for what he has given us I’m sorry to say that he’s just not able to sing them anymore. Such a shame.

Saw Don McLean in Cardiff on the weekend and have never been so disappointed in an artist that I loved when growing up. He couldn’t hit a single note and when he sang crying that’s exactly what I felt like doing. We walked out halfway through, it was simply that bad. Time to hang it up Don, you just don’t have it anymore.

1.0 star rating Kate from Cardiff


Saw Don McLean at the opening concert of the 50th Anniversary of American Pie tour. Saw him in Croydon 35 years ago. Brilliant. The concert in Cardiff a couple of weeks back was dreadful The man didn't hit a single note. Flat, toneless, embarrassing. Trying to get my money back. Vincent Van Gough committed suicide then Don murdered him.

1.0 star rating Liz from Edinburgh


Had been looking forward to this for months but it was extremely disappointing. Backing group were great but Don was consistently out of tune and has totally lost his old magic. After the vocals for Vincent was ‘murdered’ we left and couldn’t bear to hear any more. Sorry but this was a very poor showing.

1.0 star rating Debbie from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania


Always loved his songs and their melodic flow that were so easy to sing with, but didn't hear that tonight. Sound was way too loud for the venue size. We had to move to the back from front balcony seats. No songs were sung as recorded when they were hits. Couldn't sing along to them. I wish he kept the integrity of the original recordings instead of trying to turn soft ballads into harder rock pieces. Disappointing.

1.0 star rating Linda from New Jersey


Saw him in concert Saturday at Monmouth University- his voice was so off key that I went home and listened to him went he actually was great. He should really stop concerts. It was so bad. I think the band behind him played loud to try and mask how bad he sings now .
