Glen Campbell To Sing "Wichita Lineman" in Wichita Tonight

The haunting organ. The violins recreating the sound of wind in the wires. Glen Campbell's superb vocal performance. Released in October, 1968, Wichita Lineman is one of the great songs of the era.

Tonight, Mr. Campbell will perform at Wichita's Orpheum Theatre on a stop on his "Goodbye Tour." The performance is sold out. As he has announced, he has Alzheimer's Disease and this will be among his final public performances.

The Wichita Eagle has an illuminating article about the song and tonight's performance here.
