New Brunswick, NJ —State Theatre presents Glen Campbell in his Goodbye Tour on Thursday, October 18, 2012 at8pm. Campbell will perform hits from his 50-year career including “Gentle on My Mind,” “By the Time I Get to Phoenix,” “Rhinestone Cowboy,” and “Southern Nights,” as well as songs from his latest album, Ghost On the Canvas. Campbell will be joined on stage by his two sons, Cal and Shannon, and daughter, Ashley, as they celebrate his life and music with song favorites and personal reminiscences. Tickets range from $35-90.

 

Throughout his 50 years in show business, Glen Campbell has released more than 70 albums. He has sold 45 million records and accumulated no less than 12 RIAA Gold albums, four Platinum albums, and one Double-Platinum album. Campbell made history by winning four Grammy® Awards in both country and pop categories in 1967. From January 1969 through June 1972, Campbell hosted his own weekly variety show, The Glen Campbell Goodtime Hour, on CBS. In 2005, Campbell was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame.

 

Campbell’s latest studio album, Ghost On the Canvas, is the album of his life. The album was largely written by Campbell with producer-collaborator Julian Raymond, complemented by contributions from Jakob Dylan, Paul Westerberg, Teddy Thompson, and Robert Pollard, with evocative instrumental interludes composed by Roger Manning as musical illustration. With beauty, power, heartfelt emotion, and deep spirituality, this set of songs traces the arc of Campbell’s 75 years: From dirt-poor, tiny-town Arkansas origins to Hollywood triumphs on the pop charts, television, and movies. From his barnstorming days of youthful touring, to hobnobbing with Elvis, Sinatra and the Duke, to troubled freefalls of addiction and bad life choices, to personal and spiritual redemption. Campbell’s musicianship has inspired many of today’s most renowned pickers, and his enormous success as a crossover artist has also paved the way for hit-makers to break genre barriers. When you put it all together, the result is a career that spans 50-plus years and fans that cross generational and international lines.
