B.B. King, Curtis Salgado 

When: Sat., March 2, 8 p.m. 2013
Price: $45-75
I saw B.B. King almost 15 years ago at a free show at Nashville's Riverfront Park on the shores of the Cumberland River. He was old then, and he's older now. Catching that show was more or less luck; I hadn't made any great plans to go out of my way to see B.B. King, but there he was, a living legend in the flesh. That show was outstanding, and King was riveting; I remember he stood for a good part of the show but had to sit down for some of it. I'm guessing he sits down even more now. I always recall that evening when I think about passing up the countless opportunities to see musical legends in person. It's a show I'm truly thankful to have seen, and while B.B. King is 87 years old and still going strong, it's unlikely there will be too many more chances to see one of the great original bluesmen in the flesh. If you've never seen him, seriously, what are you waiting for? NED LANNAMANN
