Actor John Finnegan has died following a battle with pneumonia.
The 85 year old died at his home in Palm Desert, California on Sunday (29Jul12).
Finnegan was perhaps best known for his appearances opposite the late Peter Falk in Columbo, in which he played a string of different characters.
He also featured in films like The Natural, Jfk and lent his voice to animated hit An American Tail.
Many ticket-holders couldn't get into the O2 Arena show on Tuesday night (September 19th) because they didn't bring photo ID to match their booking.
An album re-release, a new song and a documentary mark the singer's legacy this year.
The actor plays the titular hero in the forthcoming adaptation.
