B.B. King in Concert
Wednesday, March 6th, 2013
For more than half a century, B.B. King—born Riley B. King—has defined the blues for a worldwide audience. Soon after his number one hit, "Three O’clock Blues," B.B. began touring nationally. In 1956, B.B. and his band played an astonishing 342 one-night stands. Even now at 86, King still tours at a voracious pace, with 13 dates booked over four American states in January 2013 alone.
Over the years, B.B. has developed one of the world's most identifiable guitar styles.
