ABOUT THE FILM from glencampbellmovie.com
In 2011, music legend Glen Campbell set out on an unprecendented tour across America. They thought it would last 5 weeks. Instead it went for 151 spectacular, sold-out shows over a triumphant year-and-a-half across America.
What made this tour extraordinary was that Glen had recently been diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease. He was told to hang up his guitar and prepare for the inevitable. Instead, Glen and his wife went public with his diagnosis and announced that he and his family would set out on a "Goodbye Tour."
The film documents this amazing journey as he and his family attempt to navigate the wildly unpredictable nature of Glen's progressing disease using love, laughter and music as their medicine of choice.
Special appearances include Bruce Springsteen, The Edge, Paul McCartney, Blake Shelton, Sheryl Crow, Keith Urban, Brad Paisley, Taylor Swift, Steve Martin, Chad Smith and Bill Cinton among many more.
