Default Glenn Campbell Farewell Tour

Glenn Campbell performed at the Civic Auditorium in Panama City (FL) last night. He is doing his farewell tour. It did not get a lot of advertisement locally but I'm told by friends in attendance it was standing room ONLY !!! I'm told he has two or three of his children in his band and they travel with him. Campbell has Alzheimer's. He used a monitor incase he forgot some of the lyrics to his great songs. My friends also said he did struggle remembering his children's names when introducing them to the audience. Even with his disability the performance was outstanding I'm told.

I hate I missed this one, he's always been a favorite of mine. I would highly recommend if he performs near you, go see him. He will be remembered for years to come.

That's sad. He was once a rising star and a favorite of mine as well, back in the early '70s.

Dang, that was a long time ago!!
