American singer Bing Crosby’s last public performance before he died was at the Brighton Centre in Brighton, England, on 10 October 1977.
The concert concluded a British tour for the singer, and three days later he flew to Spain. On 14 October 1977, after playing golf at La Moraleja Golf Course in Alcobendas near Madrid, 74-year-old Crosby collapsed and died by the clubhouse due to a heart attack.
A wall plaque unveiled by the US Ambassador at the Brighton Centre on 31 March 1978 reads:
