| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Glen Campbell's "Goodbye Tour" has scheduled a Chicago-area stop: Jan. 26 at the Rialto Square Theatre in Joliet.

After revealing an Alzheimer's disease diagnosis in June, Campbell said his current album -- the acclaimed "Ghost on the Canvas," released Aug. 30 -- and supporting tour would be his last. His touring band includes wife Kim and several sons and daughters.

The 75-year-old country music legend and actor has recorded more than 70 albums in his half-century career, scoring hits with such songs as "Gentle on My Mind," "By the Time I Get To Phoenix," "Galveston," "Rhinestone Cowboy" and "Southern Nights."

Tickets for the Jan. 26 concert ($29-$78) go on sale at 9 a.m. Nov. 18 via the Rialto box office, all Ticketmaster outlets, ticketmaster.com and by calling (815) 726-6600 or (800) 982-2787.
