Glen Campbell Good-Bye Tour Film
Arkansas native and music legend Glen Campbell was diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease in 2011. Instead of hanging it up, he announced a "Goodbye Tour," which he thought would be only five weeks. The tour lasted more than 150 sold-out shows over a year and a half. They decided to put it on film.
