The King of Blues Guitar B.B. King Keeps on Picking in 2009 Tour

August 20, 2009

Almost 84 and still on the road, Blues legend B.B. King continues on a tour that seems to have started decades ago and has no end in sight. After nearly 60 years of live performances and recording, the blues-guitar superstar is going back to his musical influences, playing a lot of material from his last album, released last August, called "One Kind Favor". The music offered up this time out comes from King's blues roots in 1950s Mississippi, which is exactly where the star intends to pause the tour in early September, with a fitting two-date tribute to the birthplace of his unique and unequaled musical style. Starting up again in October, just after his September 25th birthday celebration, King plans to be on the road through to the end of November where he will wrap up the tour with one last show in Solana Beach, California.
