One of the biggest names in blues music is coming to Tyler Thursday night.
The King of Blues, B.B. King, will be live in concert at Tyler's Caldwell Auditorium.
B.B. King has played in Tyler before, at U.T. Tyler's Cowan Center, but he's one of the biggest names to ever play in Tyler ISD's Caldwell Auditorium.
The "King of Blues" has been playing professionally since the 1940s, and Thursday, he and his famous guitar Lucille will wow an East Texas crowd.
You can't buy tickets for the concert online anymore, but you can still find them Thursday at Stanley's Barbeque on Beckham Street in Tyler or at the Caldwell Auditorium box office, starting at 3:30 p.m. Thursday.
Tickets start at $50 for balcony seats.
Doors open Thursday night at 6:30 p.m. The blues group "The Governor's Blues Revue" from Tulsa, OK, will open the show at 7:30 p.m. The B.B. King band will take the stage at 8:30 p.m.
