B.B. King Apologizes For Bad Show

04/17/2014
.
(The Blues) B.B. King has issued an apology for the concert earlier this month which saw him being heckled by an unhappy crowd. Some attendees at the Peabody Opera House in St Louis began making catcalls and left early as the 88-year-old icon delivered a set described as "erratic" and "rambling."

Now he's explained that the poor performance was due to his enduring a 24-hour drive to the show, along with forgetting to take his diabetes medication. A spokesman says: "The combination of the rigours of the drive and high blood-sugar resulted in a performance that did not match Mr King's usual standard of excellence.

"Simply put, it was a bad night for one of America's living blues legends. Mr King apologises, and humbly asks for the understanding of his fans." View audience-shot video of the performance here.
