The Beach Boys are coming to Grand Canyon University Arena Saturday night for a stop on their 50th anniversary tour.  One former member of the group is also making his way across the country – for the last time.  Glen Campbell‘s Goodbye Tour that passed through here in February, will be playing the Majestic Theatre in San Antonio that night, and moves through Galveston on Sunday night.  From December 1964 through early March 1965, Glen was a touring member of The Beach Boys playing bass and singing Brian Wilson‘s high falsetto harmony part.  He had played on many of their studio sessions, but never got his photo included on one of their many picture sleeves, and this was the first time he went out on the road with them.

A few years ago Glen recalled how that came about.
