The GRAMMY Foundation® and GRAMMY Museum® are partnering to celebrate the life and legacy of B.B. King, 15-time GRAMMY®-winning rhythm & blues singer. Titled Icon: The Life And Legacy of B.B. King, the live tribute will include performances by multi-GRAMMY winners Keb' Mo', Derek Trucks, and Jimmie Vaughan; GRAMMY winners Slash and Susan Tedeschi; GRAMMY nominees Joe Bonamassa and Kenny Wayne Shepherd; and artist Joe Lewis Walker. The show will be musically directed by the "Conan" show's own musical director and house band Jimmy Vivino and the Basic Cable Band.
In addition to a live tribute performance and storytelling by artists influenced by King's work, there will be a pre-event VIP reception, for VIP ticket buyers. A handful of auction items signed by participating artists will be available exclusively to attendees for silent bidding.
