  1. I saw Glen Campbell perform on his final tour. He needed to use a teleprompter to make it through some of the lyrics to his songs (though truthfully, many performers not suffering from dementia do so as well), but his musicianship was very much intact. He obviously enjoyed performing very much, and the audience was very supportive of him also. There is a film documenting this final tour and the progression of his illness during that time, called “I’ll Be Me.” Parts of it are absolutely heartbreaking, but it is definitely worth your time to watch it. Yes, Glen, be at peace….

    • I saw an interview with Glen and his daughter on TV about a year ago, including footage of the tour. I’m so glad you got to experience it in person.
