In Concert

Bing originally developed his skills on the vaudeville and theatre stage and enjoyed a record run of over twenty weeks at the Paramount theatre in New York in 1931/32. Appearances at numerous theatres across the USA followed before Bing went into films. His heavy commitment in films and radio virtually ended his concert work until World War II when he became a prolific entertainer at military camps and at bond rallies. Thereafter he made very few live performances until 1976 when, to everyone's surprise, he returned to the concert stage with a vengeance. Bing starred in concerts in New York, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Miami Beach, New Orleans, Pasadena, Preston, Dublin, Edinburgh, Manchester and Oslo as well as headlining two sell-out seasons at the London Palladium in 1976 and 1977. Bing's marvelous performances endeared him to all that saw them. His last public engagement was at Brighton on 10th October 1977

Many of the numerous books about Bing Crosby are out of print but can sometimes be obtained from second-hand bookshops or by advertising in the ICC magazine BING.


A significant portion of this article originated with THE INTERNATIONAL CROSBY CIRCLE (ICC), [Site has disappeared] founded as the British Bing Club in March 1950 and converted to The International Crosby Circle in January 1966.

The main aims of the ICC are to preserve and promote Bing Crosby's incomparable musical legacy throughout the world and to provide information for members on all matters related to Bing's career. The ICC magazine BING is published three times a year; Spring (copy date 25th February), Summer (copy date 25th June) and Winter (copy date 25th October). Members can advertise for their wants or services that they can offer in the magazine. The Annual General Meeting of the ICC is held in Leeds, England on the first Sunday in October, unless otherwise advised. The ICC also sponsors research and supports the publication of books about Bing's life and career as well as arranging the issue of a Crosby Calendar each year.

Christmas is a wonderful, cheerful holiday.  Whether we spend it by a real tree or some Balsam Hill artificial Christmas trees, at the end of the day what matters is that we enjoy our time together with our loved ones.
