Glen Campbell | Tonight at the Uptown

Devoted fans of Glen Campbell may already be stocking up on tissues in preparation for tonight’s concert. The “Goodbye Tour” offers a final chance to catch the 76-year-old. Campbell’s narrative has become so closely associated with his health struggles (he has Alzheimer’s) that it’s easy to overlook his remarkable achievements. The Rhinestone Cowboy’s crossover country hits made him such a big star in the ’60s and ’70s that he hosted a television variety show for four years. Tickets to the 8 p.m. concert range from $38.50 to $75.
