BB was remarkable, and his band of musicians was extraordinary. The electric bass player was amazing as was the guitar player. The overall effect of having that slow, deep, relentless blues wash over you for an hour and a half was therapeutic!

Good concert, but Saban Theatre needs to update the sound.

The theater was comfortable and the sound system was great. I was dissatisfied with the location of our seats. We would have purchased balconey.

It was "Okay." B.B. King is a legend and, I guess, can get away with not doing much. I wish he would have performed more...he talked way too much. He never completed one... continued

A concert with the King of the Blues is a wonderful experience.

I paid to hear him play, not talk. The gal behind us shouted "Shut up and play!" (exactly how I felt). The wife and I left about 20 minutes into his "You Are My Sunshine" sing along/story telling. If he ain't gonna play, then he needs to retire.

B.B. King is a legend. Well worth the price to get a change to see him one more time. We really liked the decor of the Saban Theater. The art deco period of old Hollywood was so glamorous and ornate. Go check this theater out.

Great experience. The Will call line was short. The balcony seats are unassigned. 10$ parking at Saban Theater parking lots. Beautiful theater decor.

He talked more than he played. Hardly sang and it was because he could not remember the lyrics. Not even worth the goldstar price

Thank you. My date loved the surprise of seeing B.B. King live in Beverly Hills for his birthday. The venue was small, perfect for the family feel and romantic affect. Very glad we went.

Was really looking forward to his performance but was disappointed in his song selection & he did too much talking.

First, let me start with the parking. It was horrible. I don't think I will go to a show there again. We had to park far down the street. Most theaters in the area have a... continued
