In 2011, music legend Glen Campbell set out on an unprecedented 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.” This film documents this amazing journey.

 

Presented by: Beth Sholom Village • EVMS Glennan Center for Geriatrics & Gerontology • Freda H. Gordon Hospice & Palliative Care of Tidewater • Jewish Family Service of Tidewater • Simon Family JCC
