Hollywood Bowl

Venerated blues master and reigning king of the blues B.B. King performs with his relentless passion and lighting fast guitar licks. The evening opens with the multi-Grammy-nominated husband-and-wife band (featuring Susan Tedeschi’s gutsy vocals and Derek Trucks’ acclaimed guitar playing) and their amazing blend of Delta blues, soul and funk-rock.


Sounds Sweet!!

BB King is a blues legend no doubt about it but judging from reviews of the last 1 or 2 years his "relentless passion and lighting fast guitar licks" days are over. Nowadays it's relentless / endless talking and some song bits. But in case the TTB has enough stage time and a possible sit in with BB it still could be a cool gig. Would really dig seeing a show at the legendary Hollywood Bowl.

So now Derek will have opened for B.B. King, and Santana. Toured with Clapton. Guested on a CD with Buddy Guy. The list goes on and on. Derek is the future. Derek is the now. Taking the road onward.

I don't know. When I finally saw B.B. at the Fillmore in SF in '07 (I had seen Freddie King in '73 and Albert in '92) I cried. I wouldn't have cared if he couldn't play his guitar at all - his emotional presence was HUGE. And it felt like everyone else who was there that night felt the same way I did. I saw him again the next year and it was the same vibe.

Maybe you just have to be there. Of course, if you had seen him before when he was younger, you might feel different - I felt privileged to have the opportunity to see him before he became a deceased legend. I grew up in Chicago and I'm ashamed to admit that I never saw Muddy Waters play. Had dozens of opportunities but kept putting it off and putting it off until he died. I've been kicking myself for 30 years and swore I would never let that happen again.

Great post. I, too, saw BB for the first time just a few years ago and had the same experience. I didn't expect fireworks. I just felt like it was privilege just to be there.

So, in other words, it's a good pairing.

That 'bout sums it up. Have seen him a couple times in sat few years including ths sat summer. Lots of talking....his band is so talented, too bad. Won't be spending money on Tix for BB again.

As much as I love BB King, I have to agree. We saw him last year at the Seminole Hard Rock, the other Hollywood, and he didn't do much singing or playing. He was talking about Viagra the whole show and mumbling too. He sang no more than one verse of any song, but he sang them well. He has a fabulous band. I will say the audience showed him the greatest respect. No audible complaining. He came to Miami recently, but played at a small venue.
