Penn's Peak - Jim Thorpe, PA
Every once in a while, something pleasant and unexpected falls into your lap. Tonight was one of those nights.
I saw Gordon Lightfoot perform at Penn's Peak back in May, and they had a sign up in the box office advertising a flash sale for tonight's show. They were selling tickets on a buy one, get one free sale. It worked out to $36 bucks for two tickets, which is an absolute steal! I had no idea that Don McLean was on tour, but there was no way that I could pass up the opportunity to see him live in concert. It would have been a bargain at three times the price.
To be completely honest, I'm not very familiar with Don McLean's catalog. I know American Pie, of course. Everyone does. It's one of the most recognizable and iconic songs ever recorded. I recognized at least a few other songs that he performed tonight, but I didn't know they were his. It was a great show and I'm thankful that I had the opportunity to be there.
