SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. - For more than five decades, legendary blues artist B.B King has graced the music scene with unforgettable hits such as "The Thrill Is Gone" and "Three O'clock Blues."
This fall, the Inland Empire will have an opportunity hear and see him in concert when he performs at Cal State San Bernardino's Coussoulis Arena on Nov. 19 at 8 p.m.

Ticket prices are $85 for VIP Gold Circle seating, $65 reserved seating and $55 for general admission.. Service fees will apply.
Cal State San Bernardino's own Jazz Ensemble, directed by CSUSB assistant professor Robert Knop, will be the opening act.
Widely illustrated as one of the greatest blues musicians of all time, B.B King, short for Blues Boy King, has recorded more than 50 albums since he hitchhiked from his home in Mississippi to Memphis, Tenn., to pursue his music career.
Now 80, King has over his long career earned 15 Grammy Awards and inductions into the Blues Foundation Hall of Fame and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
His style is so influential that in 2003, Rolling Stone Magazine listed him as No. 3 on its list of the 100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time.
