bb king sings the blues

I saw B.B. King several years ago, and he was in poor physical shape. Unfortunately, he had to sing sitting down, and he was not in his prime the way that I had remembered from other performances.
It's a double-edged sword though.  He is a gifted musician who will keep on singing because he loves it and makes people happy. That I acknowledge.
With more than five decades of playing and singing the blues, legendary guitarist B.B. King and Buddy Guy will bring their jazz and blues to Constellation Brands-Marvin Sands Performing Arts Center at 7 p.m. Friday (Aug. 26).
Tickets for the show at 3355 Marvin Sands Drive, Hopewell, are $25-$65. For more, call (800) 745-3000, or go to or
