Post by jay » Mon May 20, 2019 7:46 am

Glen returned to Albuquerque to play at the Tingley Rodeo Coliseum at the New Mexico State Fair during September 20-22 1968. One mention of interest was that Glen sang songs for commercials for $15 while living in Albuquerque.

Glen played at the Civic Auditorium with Buck Owens and Willie Nelson. Hard to believe they spelled his name wrong, even back then!

Glen Campbell Goodbye Tour July 31, 2012 Albuquerque

Post by jay » Sat Apr 20, 2019 10:48 am

Glen played at the Route 66 Casino outside Albuquerque. It was a fantastic concert. He seemed at ease and joked around with Shannon quite a bit during the concert. Having seen Glen on two other Goodbye Tour stops, I believe this was a great night for him. He reminisced briefly about his time in Albuquerque in the 50's and even sang A-L-B-U-Q-U-E-R-Q-U-E (written by Ralph Flanagan in the 50's).
I believe this is the setlist for this concert.

Gentle on My Mind
Galveston
By the Time I Get to Phoenix
Try a Little Kindness
Play Video
Where's the Playground Susie?
Didn't We
I Can't Stop Loving You
True Grit
Lovesick Blues (Glen accidentally detuned his guitar and Shannon said he could handle it and Glen and Shannon had a
funny back and forth)
Dueling Banjos
Hey Little One
Any Trouble
Play Video
It's Your Amazing Grace
The Moon Is a Harsh Mistress
Wichita Lineman
Rhinestone Cowboy
Southern Nights
A Better Place

Here is a video from that concert:
