BB King Ottawa Ontario Canada May 27, 20
By Jeff the bass guy from Ottawa Ontario Canada on 5/28/2012
Pros:
Good venue National Arts, Great performer, Super back-up musicians

BB never fails to impress. At age 86 he has defineately slowed down physically but he is still the ultimate performer. His guitar playing was great, however, it was just a few licks here and there but distinctively BB. You can tell his fingers have seen better days. His voice however is still top notch. He show cased his back-up band at every opportunity which demonstrates the tightness of this little group of musicians. We have become accustomed to "canned" electronic music at most concerts. Not here. Real musicians, playing real instruments in real time. Doesn't get any better than that. I read some reviews of this tour from other sources and there is a common complaint about the fact that talked a lot and didn't do much performing. Come on people, his presence in the venue is a performance in itself. Master story teller and interaction with the crowd. Here in Ottawa last night the end of the show saw his handlers come out to assist him off stage. BB as the true performer stayed around, invited the crowd to gather round especially the kids in the house, signed autographs, sat for pictures with fans and generally conversed with the crowd. While I admit this performace was different from those of his I have seen in the past, he still garners respect from the crowd of true fans. I feel honored to be in attendance last night. The last of one of the true greats made his mark once again. Definately worth the price of admission. Best wihes BB, only you will determine when it is time to slow down, which I hope is a long way off in the future.

No music, only genuflecting
By Silky from Ottawa, Ontario, Canada on 5/28/2012
Pros:
Still got pipes
Cons:
Never finished one song, Played less than 1 hour, Way too much chatter

Don't waste your money unless you just want to see him and not hear him sing. Of course you can hear him banter to the audience for the hour he's on stage. So he deserves respect for his lifetime in the blues but he never finished a complete song and my guess is he only started 4. He doesn't deserve my hundred bucks for that. Band too over-powering.

Embarassing, felt sorry for BB, don't go
By Disillusioned from mpls, mn on 5/18/2012
Cons:
BB can't play guitar, Deliberate lack of effort, Humiliating for BB, Wasted money

The mpls show was a disaster, I know he is 86 but he didn't even try - felt he was mocking the audience, I now have no respect for the man.

By j from macon, ga. on 1/8/2012

For what it is worth: b b king 12/31/11 at macon city auditorium was the most disappointing concert I have ever attended. I hope this performance was not the show that is the norm.

B.B. King Concert Tickets

When it comes to the blues, nobody does it better than B.B. King. Considered one of the greatest guitarists of all time, King has been attracting crowds for more than 60 years, and though he is approaching 90 years old, people still line up for B.B. King tickets so they can watch a piece of rock history go to work.

Dubbed the "King of the Blues," B.B. King has proven himself to be one of the most important figures in the blues movement. He brought a new flavor to the genre with his electric guitar and staccato riffs, not to mention his deep, gravel vocals. With B.B. King tickets, you can be there when this legend pours his heart out on stage.

B.B. King got his start in 1949 when he released several singles, and although they failed to chart well, it was clear that the young guitarist from Itta Bena, Mississippi, had something special. In 1956, he released his full-length debut, Singin' the Blues, and he was well on his way to becoming a household name. Even from the beginning it seemed as if King was destined to be the master that would inspire talents like Eric Clapton and Jeff Beck.

Throughout the 1960s and 1970s, King was one of the most prolific artists in the music world. Among the highlights was the release of 1968's Lucille, an album named after one of his many famous guitars. The album gave him mainstream success that would follow King throughout the rest of his career. By this time King was already rolling up on stage with greats Buddy Guy, Ted Nugent and even Jimi Hendrix.

King is greatly inspired by his rough upbringing. Born deep in the Mississippi Delta, King was raised by a single mother and his grandmother, and he made his keep as a sharecropper. He went on to serve in World War II before making his way to Memphis and working as a disc jockey under the name "The Beale Street Blues Boy" (it was later shortened to "B.B."). But his career really took off with his first record for Bullet Records. The next year, RPM Records signed King on and released some of the musician's biggest hits for the next 12 years.

For decades, King was playing more than 300 shows each year and recording a plethora of hit singles, like "The Thrill is Gone," "How Blue Can You Get," "Sweet Sixteen" and "To Know You Is to Love You." Another man might have retired by now, but King is still going strong. This blues powerhouse still tours like there's no tomorrow, bringing his soulful rhythms to millions of fans across the country.

Even as he got older, King continued to turn out album after album. In 2008, at 82, he released his 24th album One Kind Favor, which earned him a Grammy. Don’t miss your opportunity to check out this blues legend in the flesh; grab your B.B. King concert tickets today!
