The King of the Blues, Mr. B.B. King, turned 87 on Sunday (9/16), and the "Blues Boy" sounds as sweet and powerful as ever.

Despite his advancing age, King is still out on the road doing what he does best. Having recently wrapped up a series of dates with the Tedeschi Trucks Band (featuring the husband-wife team of Derek Trucks and Susan Tedeschi -- see video below), King will head to Brazil for five dates in early October before returning Stateside for a fall tour that runs through early December.
