Country music legend Glen Campbell set out in 2011 on his “Goodbye Tour,” an early retirement brought on by cognitive problems related to Alzehimer’s disease, which afflicts more than 5 million Americans.
A film that documented Campbell’s 151-show tour was released last fall. The film “Glen Campbell: I’ll Be Me” will be screened at the Egyptian Theatre in Boise at 6 p.m. Wednesday.
A question-and-answer session with Glen Campbell’s wife, Kim, will follow the screening, at about 7:45 p.m.
The screening was organized by The Terraces of Boise, a retirement community set to open this summer. They’ve already given out about 400 tickets, but there are 300 available to the general public. Those who want to attend must RSVP: Call 336-5550.
In 2015, Campbell won a Grammy for Best Country Song for “I’m Not Gonna Miss You.” See a video of Campbell performing that song here:
