Movie Info

In 2011, music legend Glen Campbell set out on an unprecedented tour across America. They thought it would last 5 weeks instead it went for 151 spectacular sold out shows over a triumphant year and a half across America. What made this tour extraordinary was that Glen had recently been diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease. He was told 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 amazing journey as he and his family attempt to navigate the wildly unpredictable nature of Glen's progressing 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.

Emotional and intimate.

It's a rare, intensely personal look at Alzheimer's that will be tragically familiar to those who have lived with it and sobering and sad for those who have not.

April 2, 2015 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…

One of Glen Campbell's final songs was Not Gonna Miss You, dedicated to his wife. I can't imagine anyone listening to it and not being moved.

January 7, 2015 | Rating: 3.5/4

This is a portrait of a star gaining luster even as his mortality becomes more evident.

December 26, 2014 | Rating: 3.5/4

Ultimately, I'll Be Me is both an unconventional tribute to this American icon and a deep-down cri de coeur for more research on viable ways to retard the progression of Alzheimer's and perhaps one day find a reliable cure.

Audience Reviews for Glen Campbell: I'll Be Me

A very heart warming tale of Glen Campbell and his unfortunate battle with Alzheimer's disease over the course of his last tour. Campbell is still with us but this was truly the last glimpse of the remnants of who he was and reflects the goodness of the man.
