Glen Campbell's Goodbye Tour will stop off at Robinson Center Music Hall Sept. 6.

It's the Delight native's final tour, announced last year after the music legend told the world that he'd been diagnosed with Alzheimer's.

Tickets go on sale Friday morning at 10 a.m., and they range from $50-$94. You can order by phone at 501-244-8800 or 800-745-3000, or buy online here.

Another Arkansas native, music critic Mikael Wood, reviewed Campbell's June 24 performance at the Hollywood Bowl for Spin.

"Sometimes the cheers rewarded Campbell's still-strong singing or his tasty guitar solos on 'Gentle on My Mind' and 'Wichita Lineman'; on 'Lovesick Blues' (originally popularized by Hank Williams) he showed off a yodel as true-blue as it might've been in the early Sixties," Wood wrote. "At other points, though, Campbell's fans were responding to the almost unbearable poignancy of a man delivering time-worn lyrics heavy with new meaning, as when he admitted, 'I am so afraid of dying,' in 'Galveston.'"
