Here are two words we NEVER thought would go together: B.B. King + heckled!
King has been named one of the music industry’s top guitarist, he was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1987 and has earned the nick name, “The King of Blues.” But on Friday night, the 88-year-old felt less than a King.
B.B took the stage at St. Louis’ Peabody Opera House last weekend and according to reports, concertgoers were not pleased with the artist’s performance, in fact many called it, painful and erratic.
According to the Associated Press, King’s show featured just a “handful of complete songs amid meandering musical snippets, long-winded soliloquies, an 8-piece backup band that missed its cues and a 15-minute sing-along of “You Are My Sunshine.”
The singer was heckled as he continued with his set, in fact fans were so disappointed, some decided to just walk out.
Calls to King’s reps were not returned.
