Glen Campbell, the “Rhinestone Cowboy,” will visit the Walton Arts Center in late April. I hope he rides in on a horse.

Arkansas native Glen Campbell may be making a last run, but he’s going at full speed as he does.

The country musician and actor was diagnosed with the early stages of Alzheimer’s disease many months ago. He then announced he would go on a final tour, which, thankfully, now includes a stop in Fayetteville on April 27. He will perform at the Walton Arts Center, it was announced Wednesday.

You can watch Campbell this Sunday (Feb. 12) as he performs at the Grammy Awards with The Band Perry and Blake Shelton. Campbell will also receive the Grammy organization’s lifetime achievement award.

Tickets to Campbell’s upcoming show at the Walton Arts Center go on sale at 9 a.m. Thursday (Feb. 16). Tickets range from $43-$79 and are available by calling 443-5600 or through the venue’s website.
