Campbell brings 'Goodbye Tour' to Wabash

Posted: Tuesday, February 14, 2012

WWKI will welcome legendary country artist Glen Campbell to the Honeywell Center in Wabash on Thursday, May 10 at 7 p.m.  Tickets for the show go on sale Tuesday, February 21 at 8 a.m.

After 21 Top 40 hits and selling nearly 50 million records worldwide, the Rhinestone Cowboy is preparing to saddle up and ride into the sunset.  In June 2011 Glen Campbell was diagnosed with the early stages of Alzheimer's disease.  Because of his illness, Campbell wanted to perform one more time before retiring from the music industry, so he created "The Goodbye Tour" as his farewell to fans and to concert touring.

A country music singer, guitarist, television host, and actor, Glen Campbell is best known for a series of hits in the 1960's and 70's, as well as hosting a variety show called The Glen Campbell Goodtime Hour.  During his 50 years in show business, Campbell released more than 70 albums and made history by winning five Grammys in both the country and pop categories.  Some of Campbell's hits include "Rhinestone Cowboy," "Gentle on My Mind," "By the Time I Get To Phoenix," "Galveston," and "Southern Nights."

In 2005, Campbell’s storied career added another notch to its belt when he was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame.  During the 2012 Grammy Awards Ceremony, the child of an Arkansas sharecropper received a Lifetime Achievement award, bringing his Grammy total to six.

Tickets are $29, $39, $49 and $75, and may be purchased at the box office beginning 8 a.m. Tuesday, February 21 by calling (260) 563-1102 or visiting www.honeywellcenter.org.
