The man behind one of the most well-known songs of the modern age - American Pie - will play four nights at Dublin's Vicar Street next year.

72-year-old Don McLean is still on the road and has even played festivals like Glastonbury in recent years.

He'll be hoping for a similarly enthused crowd when he plays Vicar Street on May 20th, 21st, 22nd and 23rd 2018.

Tickets are on sale this coming Monday, October 16th from usual outlets at 9am.
