The Long Center presents: GLEN CAMPBELL - The Goodbye Tour
Legendary singer/guitarist Glen Campbell, a true American musical icon, will play Dell Hall stage as part of The Goodbye Tour – a celebration of his extraordinary five-decade-plus career and celebration of his acclaimed final studio album Ghost on the Canvas.
Shortly after being diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease, Campbell decided to forge ahead with both a tour and album, in the spirit of sharing his music and the truth about his condition. Campbell received the Recording Academy Lifetime Achievement Award and performed on the 54th Annual GRAMMY Awards.
Simply put, Ghost On the Canvas is the album of Glen Campbell’s life. With beauty, power, heartfelt emotion and deep spirituality, this set of songs traces the arc of Campbell’s 75 years: From dirt-poor, tiny-town Arkansas origins to Hollywood triumphs on the pop charts, TV and movies. From barnstorming days of youthful touring to hobnobbing with Elvis, Sinatra and the Duke. From troubled free falls of addiction and bad life choices to personal and spiritual redemption.
