“We are thrilled and honored for the opportunity to work with the legendary B.B. King, and to have been part of such a magical evening,” stated Bob Emmer, founding partner and COO of Shout! Factory.
B.B. and friends delighted the London crowd with favorites such as “I Need You So,” “Key To The Highway” and “The Thrill Is Gone,” trading solos, verses and endless admiration. The magical evening concluded with everyone onstage participating in a rousing rendition of “When the Saints Go Marching In.”
