Blues

B.B. King

When: Thu., Aug. 14 2014

"How Blue Can You Get" may be a relationship middle-finger for the ages, but it's no longer the same king of Beale Street blues who's pumping it out. B.B. King turns 89 years old in September and as you might imagine, his live shows, of which he plays hundreds a year, have taken a hit. Concert-goers say he spends more time chatting with the front row than he does playing, while his band carries most of the weight. Of course, when he does pick up Lucille it's lights out, so go pay proper tribute to the demi-god at 8 tonight at the Pikes Peak Center (109 S. Cascade Ave., pikespeakcenter.com). Tickets start at $58. — Bryce Crawford
