BB King Blues Festival To Hit 16 Cities This Summer

BB King will again be the star of his eponymously titled blues festival tour, but the event has been revamped for ‘07.  The moving festival starts July 24 at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel Casino, in Miami and will travel to 16 cities.  Al Green and Etta James perform on just about every date.

This year’s shows take place almost exclusively on weekend nights and many high-profile events and venues are on the schedule, including stops at the Theatre at Madison Square Garden, Red Rocks Amphitheatre, two nights at the Ravinia Festival, and a date at the Hollywood Bowl.  Joan Osbourne joins King for the Ravinia show, while Robert Randolph and James Hunter step in for the Hollywood Bowl gig.
