About this show

B.B. King, a 15-time Grammy Award winner and decorated jazz legend returns to the Paramount stage for one show only, Saturday, Jan. 15, 2011 at 8 p.m. In his last Paramount appearance, the legendary "King of the Blues," captivated a sold out, standing room only house, for two solid hours with virtuoso guitar playing, commanding vocals, intimate storytelling and beguiling showmanship. He has reigned across the decades as the genre's most recognizable and influential artist. B.B. King started recording in the late 1940's and has released more than 50 albums, including many blues classics such as 1965's definitive live blues album "Live at the Regal," and 1976's collaboration with Bobby "Blue" Bland, "Together for the First Time."
