Let's get something straight: last night's show at Comerica Theatre was not a B.B. King show. It was a Tedeschi Trucks Band concert.
B.B. King was not the headliner, much to the surprise of a few. And in all honesty, Tedeschi Trucks would have upstaged him if he was, but that's sort of the idea: King is an originator, a storied bluesman who inspired countless followers, followers like Derek Trucks and Susan Tedeschi.
With that out of the way, what transpired last night, as a whole, was nothing short of some of the greatest blues music this city will ever see. Read the Up on the Sun review.
