Blues master B. B. King coming to Moore Theatre | Concert preview

(Mark Humphrey)

(Mark Humphrey)

Born in a cabin on a Mississippi plantation, Riley “B.B.” King got his start in the late ’40s as a DJ on WDIA, America’s first black radio station (it’s still there, right in Memphis). You know the rest. The 88-year-old blues master, who gave us “Sweet Little Angel” on “Live at the Regal” as well as “The Thrill Is Gone,” among other classics, has slowed down, but his effervescent charm and pearly guitar are still very much intact. Reviews from the road warn he has a tendency to ramble, but if you’ve never seen this American legend, you probably won’t be disappointed to bask in his aura.

7:30 p.m. Monday, March 3, at the Moore Theatre, 1932 Second Ave., Seattle; $52.50- $82.50 (877-784-4849 or stgpresents.org).
