Glen Campbell is planning a farewell tour.

The 75-year-old country singer, who has amassed four platinum and six gold albums over the course of his music career, said that he wants to say goodbye to his fans properly having been diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease earlier this year.

The Daily Mail reports that the tour will include venues such as the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles and London's Royal Festival Hall.

Campbell recently told Rolling Stone magazine that he doesn't "feel any different at all" since the diagnosis but said that he is waiting "til it hits" him. He also revealed that he has been working hard to complete a final studio album called Ghost on the Canvas.

Shortly after he revealed that he had Alzheimer's, the 'Rhinestone Cowboy' singer said: "I still love performing for my fans. I'd like to thank them for sticking with me through thick and thin."

Campbell also recently admitted that he has always been very "forgetful" so has not "felt" the effects of the disease.

The musician has also starred in a number of films and famously performed the theme song for the original True Grit.
