GLEN CAMPBELL’S FINAL L.A. PERFORMANCE – JUNE 24TH, 2012
Legendary singer/guitarist Glen Campbell, a true American musical icon, gave his final Los Angeles concert at the Hollywood Bowl on Sunday, June 24 as part of his Goodbye Tour – a celebration of his extraordinary five-decade-plus career and release of his acclaimed final studio album Ghost on the Canvas. Shortly after being diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease last June, Campbell decided to forge ahead with both the tour and the album, in the spirit of sharing both his music and the truth about his condition. Campbell just received the Recording Academy Lifetime Achievement Award and joined The Band Perry and Blake Shelton for a special performance on the 54th Annual GRAMMY Awards® on Sunday, February 12, 2012. The first half of the concert began with California-based roots rock band Dawes, joined by special guest Jackson Browne and additional special guests performing original songs as well as selections from Campbell’s repertoire that have been of special influence. The concert closed with Campbell performing his most memorable hits as well as selections from Ghost On The Canvas, which has been greeted with unprecedented critical acclaim from all corners.
