Yes, thanks for sharing these stories siblis. There is a christmas concert recording floating around on the internet from 1998:

Christmas Concert, Live at the State Theatre, New Brunswick, NJ, November 27, 1998

I wonder when Glen started doing these christmas concerts. Where they something that originated in the Branson Days?

On this archived page from Glen's old website, you can see that in 2002 Glen still did a christmas tour.

Dee....as far as I can remember Glen was backed by a Choir and a Band inside of the Church.....I know it was taped & I tried for several ys to get a copy of this Show, it never panned out....it was the same yr that I saw Glen perform outside in Ocala the yr I moved to FL. It took several hrs tro drive down there, but we had just been married, so life was FUN....you know what I mean???

Thanks for sharing this great memory, siblis.
"Not your typical Glen concert" -- how fortunate for you and your now ex-wife to have been present for this very special Christmas concert / event that included Glen's "Oh Holy Night".
Did Glen sing solo or was he accompanied by a choir?

Dee...I was all the way in the back of the church behind the last set of pews, no pictures, I could barely see Glen, but the sound was GREAT. Glen sang mostly Christmas songs & some Religious songs...my Fav for night was "Oh Holy Night"!! Dee...this was not your typical Glen Concert, it was a Christmas event & everyone was dressed up, so my ex-wife & arrived in sweats & shorts, when we saw the atire people were wearing, we did a quick change in the car...lol oh....how I miss those days

Hey, siblis, you gotta track down that 1996 Christmas concert recording at that church in Ft. Lauderdale, and then upload it to YouTube for us! :)

It must have been a really special concert to attend, and I'm so glad you were there to see it.

Did Glen perform all religious music? Do you have any photos from that church concert that you could share with us?

Thanks!

Dee

I saw Glen do a Christmas Concert down in Ft Lauderdale, Fl in 1996 inside of a Church. The Church was packed & Kim, Ashley, Cal & Shannon all sat in the first pew on the left hand side as Glen played. The performance was taped, but it was never released.

WOW! Thank you, Cowpoke, for the early holiday present: your finding this program on YouTube and posting the three vids here. I can't wait to watch this program in full, after I had just learned about its existence when researching Glen's holiday albums. Never thought that I would get to see it!

At the end of this show, there is a nice pitch for the album, A GLEN CAMPBELL CHRISTMAS, that was released in conjunction with this televised program.

BTW, I didn't realize that Glen and Colin Raye went back as far as 1998, maybe earlier! (Their acoustic guitar performance of "Silent Night" at the end of the program is tremendous!)
