Glen Campbell: I'll Be Me

Glen Campbell: I'll Be Me  

Synopsis

In 2011, music legend Glen Campbell set out on an unprecedented tour across America. Originally scheduled over 5 weeks – the tour went on to do 151 spectacular sold-out shows over a triumphant year and a half.

Glen Campbell had recently been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease and advised 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.”

The film documents this incredible journey as he and his family attempt to navigate the wildly unpredictable nature of Glen’s advancing disease using love, laughter and music as their medicine of choice. Special appearances include Bruce Springsteen, The Edge, Paul McCartney, Blake Shelton, Sheryl Crow, Keith Urban, Brad Paisley, Taylor Swift, Steve Martin, Chad Smith and Bill Clinton, among many others.
