American folk legend Don McLean coming to the MSU Riley Center June 22

The song has carried its creator all over the world, from New York, to England, and all the way to the steps of the Lincoln Memorial. We hear its tune and immediately, some part of the chorus comes to our lips.

“The day the music died” resonates with so many music lovers that folk singer/songwriter Don McLean’s entire body of work is sometimes overshadowed by his hit, “American Pie.” But you’ll be able to hear much more of the music McLean has to offer when he performs at the MSU Riley Center in downtown Meridian on June 22 at 7:30 p.m. A pre-show party will take place at 6 p.m.

Tickets are $45 and $39 at the MSU Riley Center box office, which is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. Tickets can be purchased online at or by calling the box office at 601-696-2200.
