BB King - The Legendary Bluesman - Live at MGM Grand Theater

BB King is a name that I have known my entire life. BB King's music has been run through these ears of mine ever since I was first exposed to song.

For nearly 20 years, I have wanted to see BB King play live. For about 10 years, I've wanted to photograph him in action.
February 14th, 2010, I was able to cross two items off of my bucket list.

BB King and Buddy Guy performed for a sold-out crowd at MGM Grand Arena @ Foxwoods in Connecticut on Valentine's Day.

There's little I can say here. Everyone knows who BB King is, everyone knows his music, everyone knows his influence. What else could I possibly say right now?

The entire set of photos can be seen here: http://images.willhawkinsphotography.com/BBKing-14FEB10/

Here is a photo from the evening which sums the entire experience up for me:
