Glen Campbell is a music legend, winner of the Grammy for Lifetime Achievement and a member of the Country Music Hall of Fame. He also has Alzheimer's.

In 2011, Campbell set out on an unprecendented tour across America. What made this tour extraordinary was that he had recently been diagnosed with Alzheimer's. Glen and his wife went public with his diagnosis and announced that he and his family would set out on a "Goodbye Tour." The tour went on for 151 spectacular sold out shows across America over a year and a half.

The film tells the music legend's story. His life, his music and the extraordinary 151-city "Goodbye Tour" de force that's made him a hero.

"Glen Campbell I'll Be Me" debuts October 24 in theaters New York, Tennessee, New Jersey and Arkansas. The film will be released in Minneapolis and Rochester, Minnesota, and other Midwestern locations on October 31.
