Glen Campbell may be wrapping up a goodbye tour but that does not mean he is done with the stage.

Campbell is considering scheduling more shows next year after playing more than 120 dates in 2012.

The 76-year-old singer has Alzheimer's disease and has begun to lose his memory.

He put out his final studio album, Ghost on the Canvas, in 2011 and embarked on the tour with family members and close friends serving in his band and staffing the tour.

Campbell will break for the holidays and if he still feels strong he will begin scheduling more shows.
