B.B. King Background

B.B. King, born Riley B. King, spent his childhood in Mississippi, where he sang in the gospel choir at his church and started learning how to play the guitar at the young age of 12. Throughout his childhood, King was always performing and playing his tunes to whoever would listen, and he knew from the get-go that he needed to pursue his dreams of becoming a professional musician no matter what it took. He moved to West Memphis, Arkansas in 1948, where he became a regular performer on Sonny Boy Williamson's radio program, which helped him garner an enthusiastic local fan base. He soon became an in-demand performer on several different radio shows, including on the Memphis radio station WDIA. He became such a popular draw on the radio that he became a disc jockey and singer at the WDIA, earning the nickname Beale Street Blues Boy. He later shortened this name to Blues Boy, and later to B.B, eventually deciding on his stage name, B.B. King.

By 1949, King had gained such outstanding recognition as a radio personality and performer that he decided it was time to take the next step in his career, so he signed with RPM Records and started recording his own songs. He became one of the biggest blues performers in the entire world, and kept cranking out phenomenal tunes and touring heavily to promote himself as an artist. In 1956, King broke records for his heavy year of touring, performing at an incredible 342 shows in just one year! During the Fifties, King released countless hit tunes, such as "3 O'Clock Blues", "You Know I Love You", "Every Day I Have the Blues", "Sweet Little Angel", and many more. With so many hit songs in the 1950s, King started to earn the reputation as one of the biggest sensations in not just blues, but in music in general.

There's no doubt about the fact that B.B. King has created a phenomenal legacy. He has been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, has been awarded 15 Grammy Awards, has been inducted into the Blues Hall of Fame, and has been widely regarded as one of the best guitarists of all time. This legendary blues musician has had one of the most illustrious careers out of any musician to ever step out on a stage, and now you have the unique opportunity to see him perform live. Don't miss out on seeing the King of Blues perform live in concert and grab your tickets on StubHub today!
