Glen Campbell Did a Great Show at Diamond Jacks Saturday!
When Glen Campbell announced his Alzheimer’s diagnosis last year, it was a reminder of the fragility of the human condition and our short time here on Earth. His honesty of his condition, and his decision to bid farewell to his fans with a final album, are an inspiration to countless fans young and old.
Glen Campbell and his band did an excellent concert Saturday night at Diamond Jacks in Bossier City, La. He did all of his big hits like 'Gentle On My Mind', By The Time I Get To Phoenix, and 'Rhinestone Cowboy' which the audience all sang on the chorus.
His band consisted of three of his children who play guitar, banjo, keyboards and drums and are all excellent vocalists. You can see them in the Photo Gallery below.

Watch Glen Campbell Perform A Better Place
Campbell treated the audience to a blend of songs from the brand new ‘Ghost on the Canvas,’ saying, “the songs actually speak for themselves. All I thought about was ‘sing it in tune with feeling.’ I don’t want it loud, I don’t want it soft, I just want it nice and comfortable because if you get the feeling out of a song, you’ve won the war. I’ve had that happen on occasions where it all just fell in place. Amazing. Everything sounds so good. It’s just like you’re in a room with somebody.”
