Release date: 30TH APRIL 2012 (CD/DVD/BluRay) UMC
On 28 June 2011, the “King of the Blues” B.B. King played to an adoring sold-out crowd at London’s spectacular Royal Albert Hall. It was another unforgettable night in the career of one of the most legendary bluesmen to ever pick up a guitar.
The event was captured on both audio and video and is now being released on CD/DVD and an individual Blu-Ray package.
Joining the illustrious Mr. King onstage were guitar virtuoso DEREK TRUCKS, “songbird extraordinaire” SUSAN TEDESCHI, The Rolling Stones’ RONNIE WOOD, Simply Red’s MICK HUCKNALL and former Guns N’ Roses axeman SLASH.
B.B. and friends delighted the London crowd with favourites “I Need You So,” “Key To The Highway” and “The Thrill Is Gone,” trading solos, verses and endless admiration.
The magical evening concluded with everyone onstage participating in a rousing rendition of “When The Saints Go Marching In.”
