Gene Pitney in Cathays Park, 1973, a long way from Tulsa.
He died in Cardiff in 2006

Pitney was touring the UK in the spring of 2006 when his manager found him dead in his hotel room in Cardiff, Wales, on April 5. An autopsy found the cause of death to be a heart attack and that he had severely occluded coronary arteries.[15] His final show at Cardiff's St David's Hallhad earned him a standing ovation; he ended with "Town Without Pity".[16] He was buried at Somers Center Cemetery in Somers, Connecticut.[17]
