What do you say about one of the giants of modern popular music? B.B. King
is the King of the Blues, the Chairman of the Board. He's had a career that's spanned eight decades. Eight decades.
He's one of the last of his era of bluesmen, a living connection to a long-gone era, and still an incredibly lively performer. Some of his formative professional experiences happened in Arkansas. He performed on Sonny Boy Williamson's KWEM radio program in West Memphis. He named his famous guitar Lucille after a raucous incident at a concert in Twist (he also paid tribute to Louis Jordan on 1999's "Let the Good Times Roll: The Music of Louis Jordan").
So what do you say about such an artist? How about just: go see this show.
