CHATTANOOGA (WRCB) -- One of the living legends of rock and roll, B.B. King, is coming to Chattanooga for a one night performance at the Tivoli Theatre on Thursday, March 29.

Since the mid-1950s, King has developed one of the world's most identifiable guitar styles. He has been a model for thousands, from Eric Clapton and George Harrison to Jeff Beck. His style mixed traditional blues, jazz, swing, mainstream pop and jump into a unique sound.

His classics such as "Payin' The Cost To Be The Boss," "The Thrill Is Gone," How Blue Can You Get," "Everyday I Have The Blues," and "Why I Sing The Blues" are concert staples.

He has had two #1 R&B hits, 1951's "Three O'Clock Blues," and 1952's "You Don't Know Me," and four #2 R&B hits, 1953's "Please Love Me," 1954's "You Upset Me Baby," 1960's "Sweet Sixteen, Part I," and 1966's "Don't Answer The Door, Part I."
