1. While recently compiling a YouTube&Vimeo playlist/mix tape for a friend, I recalled that one of the singers I included is someone whose last show I saw before he had a heart attack within 24 hours of his performance and died not long thereafter. Have you ever knowingly seen the final performance of a singer, musician, stand-up comic, stage actor, etc. before s/he died?

3. There was also at least one time where I was looking forward to the possibility of reviewing a concert by another of my favorite singers, known to be in precarious health at the time, and he died not many months before the date I'd wanted to see him play. Have you ever planned to see someone perform who died before their scheduled appearance?

Yes, I was in the same situation at least once;I may make a comment about it below.
