B.B. King

This may be one of the last chances to see the legend. He’s already decided that his scheduled U.K. tour will be his last one there, and when an eighty-year-old performer says he’s weary of life on the road, we tend to believe him (certainly more than when we hear it from, say, Cher). King hasn’t said heÕs done with touring in the U.S., but at Orchestra Hall, he’ll be treated in appropriately kingly fashion for what is being billed as an eightieth birthday celebration–so why not see him now? After all, he’ll eventually be sitting home with his feet up, and it’s not like there’s an acceptable heir waiting to take his place. 612-371-5656; www.minnesotaorchestra.org
