It was a strange performance...
B.B. King is a legend in the music industry but even he isn't immune to heckling if his performance is off. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that the blues legend found himself the target of early departures and catcalls after an erratic performance over the weekend.
The site reports that the house lights were up for half the show and seemed to distract King, who delivered only a few complete songs and instead delivered several monologues and a fifteen minute-long sing-along of "You Are My Sunshine."
The report notes that "when King was lost for a lyric or simply what to do next, the band seemed more than content to stand respectfully by and watch him (metaphorically) die." King's agent declined to comment through an assistant. You can see video from the performance below:
