Glen Campbell Plays Final Seattle Performance

Alzheimer's disease is anything but a graceful way to pass, but singer Glen Campbell is making the best of his recent diagnosis by giving one final performance in Seattle, bringing to a close almost six decades of song. Campbell received overwhelming support from his fans and is expected to live quietly with many fond memories.

With his appearance Tuesday night at Seattle’s Paramount Theatre, singer Glen Campbell’s nearly 60 years in a sprawling career encompassing multiple genres of pop and country music come very close to an end.

After a Napa, Calif., show on Friday, Campbell, 76, who announced last year that he has Alzheimer’s disease, will retire and “probably enjoy playing a lot of golf,” says his daughter, Ashley Campbell.

Speaking by phone, Ashley, 27, who plays in her father’s band (which also includes Glen’s son Cal and another daughter, Shannon), says the star has been on the road for two years.
