It is the nature of the blues to create legends, and octogenarian B.B. King is certainly one of them. His decades-long career, marked with Grammy award-winning albums and Hall of Fame inductions has made him the most well-known and universally beloved and respected blues guitarist alive. Last September, King celebrated his 80th birthday by recording an album of duets, pairing with a laundry list of music legends such as Eric Clapton, Elton John, Roger Daltrey, Glenn Frey and Daryl Hall. It begs the question, "How is Daryl Hall still getting work?" It also serves as a reminder that even at 80, B.B. King is a force to be reckoned with.
B.B. King performs at 8 p.m. on Wednesday at Bass Performance Hall, Fourth and Calhoun streets in Fort Worth. Tickets range from $45 to $75, with a limited number of premium seats available for $100. Call 1-877-212-4280 or visit basshall.com.
