Drawing on his musical theatre roots, Stephen takes the audience back to the day the music died as tells the story of our greatest modern poet Don McLean, and how at just 26 years old, McLean came to write his parable for 1970s USA- a song that’s been broadcast on the airways a record five million times!
The show unravels the lyrics and features the music that inspired the much-loved anthem for a generation.
‘The American Pie Story’ features Don McLean’s greatest hits, including Vincent, And I Love You So, Castles in the Sky, and of course, American Pie - all presented by award-winning entertainer Stephen Fisher-King and his band of Australia’s best musicians- supported by a visual presentation on the big-screen.
Woven throughout the show are the stories and theories behind Don McLean’s iconic song, including the music that ‘touched him deep inside’, with favourites from Elvis, Buddy Holly and Bob Dylan (the jester on the sideline in a cast), bringing to life the music that used to make him smile. Because he knew, if he had his chance, he could make those people dance.
