I finally got to shoot the legend, B.B. King and what a show it was.  Since it was a seated show at The Capitol Theatre we had to shoot form the sides of the house or the soundboard, but BB King works all sides of the audience.  The lighting was very hot from behind and I shot this around iso 3200 for all 3 songs.

Rolling Stone picked up one of these for their “Hottest Live Photos” section of their web site:
