Details

Throughout the 1990s – as well as the 1980s, 1970s, 1960s and 1950s – there has been only one King of the Blues: Riley B. King, affectionately known as B.B. King. Since B.B. started recording in the late 1940s, he has released more than 60 albums, many of them considered blues classics; like 1965’s definitive album Live At The Regal and 1976’s collaboration with Bobby “Blue” BlandTogether For The First Time.

Over the years, B.B. has had two number one R & B hits (1951’s “Three O’Clock Blues” and 1952’s “You Don’t Know Me”) and four number two R & B hits (1953’s “Please Love Me,” 1954’s “You Upset Me Baby,” 1960’s “Sweet Sixteen, Part I,” and 1966’s “Don’t Answer The Door, Part I”). B.B.‘s most popular crossover hit, 1970’s “The Thrill Is Gone,” went to #15 pop.

Don’t miss this very special one night only event with blues guitar legend B.B. King at the Winspear Opera House.
