Buttery riffs and heartfelt wails emanate from the stage as two legends team up to bring the bluesy sounds of the Bayou to Nob Hill. B.B. King and Buddy Guy continue their decades-long campaign to frustrate dictionary writers across the world, defining and redefining the blues with each successive record. Fresh off recording One Kind Favor, a retrospective set that pays homage to the influences of his youth, B.B. King straps on his signature Lucille guitar and dons a sapphire crown for a performance worthy of his royal name. A living link to the electric blues that lit up Chicago’s West Side in the 1950s, Buddy Guy churns out more warm licks than a golden-retriever puppy in a set that draws on his newest album, Living Proof. At 74 years old, Buddy sounds ready for another lifetime of innovation as his spry fingers hammer on chords and massage the fret board of his trusted Stratocaster.
The Nob Hill Masonic Auditorium is armed with stunning acoustics and an intimate 3,165-seat floor plan designed so that no seat is more than 21 rows away from the stage. Dual sound systems will project the deepest registers of the performers’ voices. An extensive array of lighting equipment swathes the stage in shades of blue while olfactory simulators pump out the smell of fresh blueberries.
