It was interesting that the show at Wembley "The Silk Cut Country Music Festival" which was broadcast as a series called "Sing Country" Glen was given a full programme episode special and a couple of weeks later because of so many requests, the BBC showed an additional clip of Glen, in the programme singing "I love how you love me". Glen also sang a duet with Emmylou Harris in the original broadcast "You are my sunshine" Great show.

Thank you so much for this very detailed information and source document, Cowpoke.
I just passed it along to our researcher forum friend.

Glen Campbell appeared on the Silk Cut International Festival of Country Music in London's Wembley Arena on April 23, 1984.

A tv special of Glen's performance aired on BBC television. In 1987 a vinyl album was released for use in radioprograms, called At Wembley.

This question is a one-off so I am posting it here....

One of our forum friends is doing research of a professional nature and asked for help with this question:


When did Glen Campbell play The Wembley Country Music Festival in London? 1985? 1986? or ? Does anyone have the exact date (month/day/year)?
This specific concert begins with Glen singing “Gentle On My Mind” and ends with “Amazing Grace”.

Is there any documentation online that supports this date? (newspaper article, etc.)

Thanks!

Dee
