Glen Campbell will play to a sold-out crowd Saturday night in Airway Heights – at Northern Quest Casino. Campbell has been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease and is on the road doing what he loves best – singing and enjoying his fans.

Campbell’s wife and their three children are with him as he travels this country and entertains crowds. While entertaining he offers an object lesson: how to courageously face a future of physical demise while embracing and enjoying the life one has. Now that’s something to sing about.
