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.
Tickets for B.B. King sold out within four hours. Hosting a major headliner event is not usual for our intimate venue. This was a learning experience in reaching the edge of our capacity for booking. Before announcing another similar event we'll be looking at making improvements to the capacity of our booking system. Thank you so much for your patience and interest in the concert.
